Quoth the Raven: “Ravensword … Ever Again?”
Chillingo’s new action/RPG has fallen out of favour with Apple because of its Unity 3D engine roots which can call sneaky information-stealing API’s. Fortunately, Apple had the forethought to disprove of any app which uses those API’s and though Ravensword steals nothing more than a user’s time, it has caught Apple’s ban hammer. According to Chillingo, “the same APIs were used by iMobsters developer Storm8 to solicit contact information from players”. Apple are taking a strangely serious (and oddly moral) high ground with regard to a user’s personal information and will be re-assessing this much-anticipated game in the coming weeks.
