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 and Crazy Taxi are patented. 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.

To summarize:

  • 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.
