Zynga is called out for their upcoming game
Zynga has just been called out for trying to cash in on an indie developer's idea. Tiny Tower is a game from three man team NimbleBit and they have found great success in the free-to-play model. Now Zynga has a game called Dream Heights coming to iOS very soon, which looks quite similar to Tiny Tower. NimbleBit took notice of this and in an open letter to Zynga they congratulate them (tongue in cheek) and express gratitude for being Zynga's inspiration. Just take a look for yourself.
xD Wow NimbleBit... ballsy and rightfully so.
Always nice to see Zynga called out as the uncreative thieves that they are...
i lurv me some tiny tower its not even that exciting but somehow i'm addicted and check on my tower often, enough that when i get one of the popups asking me to find a certain person i know exactly what floor they work on and which apartment they live in. feels bad man
I am addicted to Tiny Tower. Play it everyday. I think I am on 143 levels right now. I just do 5 minutes a day and that is it. I dont know why I am so hooked on this game.
That's definitely true.
I think that Tiny Tower and SimTower, albeit the same concept, have some differences that make them different games rather then blatant copies.
Ya what you said.
Ever hear of SimTower? Maxis did it back in 1994: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SimTower
I wounder if Zynga will throw a fit about this.
Nice hehe. What's sad is Zynga will get away with it because they'll point out the minor differences as opposed to the overall design. Oh, and because they sleep with mattress stuffed with money..What's that? The mattress are made of money? My bad, my bad.
The sadest part is you don't notice they're different until you look really close, way to go zynga... have fun with your farmville movie :/
Lol at Zynga's blatant copying. Then again Sim Tower was released in 1994...
