Who knew that mobile game development was so competitive!!

Andrew sounds like a badass, though. I mean, only cool people use the term "douche move" in a clarification and apology letter.

In truth I never thought of king much until lately, even though they made the game candy crush which my family plays devotely.

Now the only reason I'm able to recognize them is for this bad publicity of late, though that saying comes to mind, "There's no such thing as bad publicity".

My family will continue to play candy crush every sunday and every other day, so I worry that all this will merely consolidate King's position in the mobile market, bad press regardless.

You know, like EA.

I think the only people who actually read about this kind of stuff are the people who don't even play the mobile games that King makes, heh.

I think this whole King thing is getting a bit silly now. People are just digging for all sorts of reasons to keep brandishing their pitch forks.

King.com is getting too annoying. I mean, you just can't copyright a word to yourself that's for general use, dammit. Face the consequences, then.

this seems familiar somehow.
Like I said before, mobile game companies are one ripoff after another. It's no real surprise this came up tbh.

mobile games are one thing but your stepping into indie development on other consoles now. This needs to end. Hopefully against King

How do you stop people from using a common word like "Candy" in a game's name? What a load of crap.

So pretty much in a nutshell, this is just a really bad mellow-dramatic rerun of the whole "Day Z' vs. "War Z" debacle of who suppoedly copied who, if at all, all over again. *facepalm*

PS - For the record though, the Candy Crush studio/devs really need to give it a rest... in the past decade there's been enough of this nonsense, seriously... where have they been, under a rock? Did they not see any of the other dozens of similar issues like this, and realize it just makes them look like @$$hats!?

PPS - I think I'm going to take a page out of Candy Crush dev's playbook though and trademark the words "and", "but", and "or"... anytime anybody uses any of those words in writing or in speech, I get a royalty... man, SHOW ME THE MONEY! *w00t!*

The first person people look at when accusations are made is the accuser. It's hilarious that they thought they could go on a ludicrous "intellectual property" tangent, without getting called on their own misdoings.
