Apple kill off Weed Dealer game

22 May 2014

cannabis_leaf Apple have nuked the chart-topping Weed Firm game from their AppStore, with the developer promising to bring it back to the fold.

If you haven't seen the hugely popular game, you follow a weed dealer called 'Ted Growing' and he gets into scrapes with the law, crooked cops, other dealers and gangsters and you play to become the "biggest weed dealer in town."

Manitoba Games, who created the game, said in a statement: "This was entirely Apple’s decision, not ours," and added that Weed Firm will return to both Android and Apple devices, even if that means they have to tinker with their game.

"The Apple version might need to be censored a bit to comply with Apple’s strictest requirement since they are going to be looking very attentively at what we submit from now on," the company said, adding: "We do not want kids playing Weed Firm, but we firmly believe that adults should have a choice to do whatever the hell they want as long as they are not hurting anybody in the process."

Of course, at the time of press, you could still buy Grand Theft Auto games through the AppStore, which Apple obviously aren't bothered about, despite the drug deals, murdering prostitutes and racketeering that goes on. Not to mention the variety of mafia games they also flog.

Seems Apple have got it in for stoner indie game developers.
