All downloadables to The Sentient Cube removed
It is sad to inform all of you that I have removed all the downloadables to The Sentient Cube for legal reasons. I was recently informed that the main mechanics of Katamari Damacy are patented (edit: and also, it seems, Crazy Taxi). To stay on the safe side, I’ve deleted the source, webplayers, and executeables from my servers.
I want to be clear that I did not know about this prior to the Ludum Dare contest it was made for. I fully support the beloved game series, and wish for its continued success.
I want to thank all of you who supported and rated my game, and I truly apologize for the inconveniences.
Edit: Now that the dust have settled a bit, let me address a few things.
- I did not receive a Cease & Desist order from Namco Bandai or Sega.
- The take-down was entirely my decision, originally for legal safety.
- Upon researching into multiple patents, the take-down will be permanent.
- As mentioned above, every binaries and source codes were taken down. All links to them will simply 404.
