I guess the problem with portraying India would be the caste system. It's officially outlawed... but still prevalent in the actual society. Publically stating that some folks are worth more to society based on which crotch they were squeezed out of ... is considered illegal in most countries ... whi...

I would surmise that they (Tilted Mill) got the rights back to the game from the publisher (myelin). Reinterpreting the loose terminology used in the news release the have possession of the website and the game itself.

The worry is valuable developer time could be taken making console versions (for how ever many of the 14 consoles that the game was re-tailored for). (we could get to see a few more TM titles out instead of retreading SCS for all the consoles) And, also I'm concerned that the game could be crippled ...

Voted no as console kids annoy me (whiny little brats having tantrums in the store when mommy wont buy them a game).
