‘Hurd’s Turds’ developer decries inconsistent Apple App Store ban

Removal of game developer claims reflects desire to avoid controversy over app designer rights

SAN JOSE, Calif. (Issuewire.com) January 24, 2023 – A game developer has issued a warning after Ironic Games was banned on one of the world’s largest software marketplaces before anyone had a chance to play it.

The decision to ban Hurd’s Turds is based on Apple’s overly short-sighted decision to protect public figures by crushing developer rights, says Hurd’s Turd creator and Turdy Games founder. says Andres Kello,

“Heard’s Tarz may have drawn comparisons to recently widely publicized court proceedings detailing the discord in the marriage of Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, but the game does not include Amber Heard’s name. Additionally, Heard claimed that the story attributed to the game was false, so who are they protecting with this ban?” Said.

He believed the ban was an effort to allay potential concerns from Hard, but it went too far as the game was still in development.

“In its written decision to reject it, Apple claimed the game was deemed offensive because of its poop-related images and sounds. This wasn’t a big deal when it was confirmed that there were over 80 games about poop and similar objectionable content approved and published on the App Store, down to PewDiePie’s Poopdie game.” Kello said. “Something was clearly missing. I knew there had to be another reason Apple was banning the game, so I called them.”

“Apple explained on the phone that the game could irritate ‘certain individuals,’ but in the end it all worked out,” says Kello. “Apple didn’t care that the individuals they were protecting weren’t named, used, or associated with the game in question. , was acting above its priority to protect the possible sensibilities of celebrities.”

“Worse, Amber Heard wasn’t involved in the decision. Apple simply assumed she would be offended, which was already misinterpreted as the game was about her.” It’s consistent with the fact that it is, but it really isn’t.It’s a lighthearted game that reflects trending news as the subject.

Kello also said the Google Play store has no qualms about making games available on its marketplace, proving that the problem isn’t with the game.

“Google has been much more rational and understanding,” says Kello. They really listened to us and appreciated our careful approach to making sure the game didn’t resemble any individual. ”

This careful approach by the developers and Google’s smart approach to the game has resulted in it being approved for Android users to enjoy and even listed on the Play Store.

Apple’s ban effectively censors people from 100% fair gaming content, preventing millions of iPhone owners from enjoying harmless apps, said Kello.

However, in response to Apple’s decision, Turdy Games has added a new development that offers another option outside the Apple App Store for those interested in playing the game.

“The game will soon be available online at hurdsturds.com,” said Kello. In any case, Apple’s censorship, which tries to protect individuals before they complain, is based solely on false assumptions, and every new his iOS developer pre-launch he’s similar to Apple’s. We believe that you may be afraid to face the situation. ”

“We believe this ban sets a new and dangerous precedent because it reflects arbitrary reasoning and inconsistent opinions by the company. Any indie developer works hard and takes months or years to develop a new app for the App Store if they bend them as far as necessary to justify arbitrary censorship to protect the public. Would you risk spending the .form?”

“By protecting Amber Heard to such an absurd degree, Apple has shown it has a bias towards high-profile things. This has made the game more popular, a new phenomenon called the “Amber Effect”. With the game releasing this week, we hope Apple users will join the world’s largest corporation to let them know that this unfair censorship that restricts users’ freedom of choice hasn’t gone unnoticed. ”
