After a very long dispute with the use of the name “EDGE”, Mobigame has finally released EDGE back onto the App Store. If you haven’t heard or played of this gem at all, now’s your time to grab the game before another incident.
EDGE was a trademarked game, and the name was owned by Tim Langdell. If you haven’t heard the stories, this guy was basically suing or threatening to sue anyone who used the name “edge” in their games, causing EA to fight back along with a lot of other smaller companies. Tim Langdell has developed absolutely nothing, and we have yet to see a game from him marked with the game “edge”. He seems to be just sitting there, looking on Google all day and searching for someone to sue.
Either way, this is really great news for Mobigame. I’m not quite sure if the issue has been resolved, but Tim Langdell has resigned from the IGDA Board in August because of pressures from the other members of the group.
