Selling Transfusion on Ouya

Postby Elric » Tue Jul 23, 2013 10:36 pm

A couple of days ago, Nick Edwards has kindly brought to LordHavoc's attention (who has then kindly brought to my attention) a peculiar game called "Zombie Arena" by a developer called "Studio 3D" on Ouya game pages: http://www.ouya.tv/games/?show=s-z

In his reply to Nick's email, LordHavoc also points out that:
there appear to be several other titles being sold by this person on the amazon market as well, including Blood (clearly Transfusion) which is a trademark violation to be sure, and I see others like 3D Arena which is clearly OpenArena, and there's Alien Arena, and Soldier of Fortune, and others on there.

Regardless of Transfusion, it looks like several companies would have good reason to have Studio 3D Mobile banned from the app store for trademark violations if nothing else.

To be honest, I'm not sure what to think about that. In the end, Transfusion is a free game, and the only non-free part (some data), doesn't belong to us. What do you think?

It would justify a letter to Amazon at the very least. You might not like the role of police officer, but now there really isn't a choice.

has anyone been able to get the "buy" page to load? All it does is load to an amazon page selling the Ouya console for me.

The amazon page for "Blood" looks like it's distributing a youtube of transfusion?

I might just need to add a section to our Transfusion article entitled "Attempted Abuses". :?

Also, 12+ for the thing?
