Fugitive Video Game Found, Developers Sort-Of Rejoice

September 19th, 2011 Canada -

Note: This is a follow up to an August article available here.

The moment was overfilled with tears, joy, and awkward silence when independent iOS game developer Evil Objective Studios was reunited with its fugitive game “ Scribble Byte Scramble” on Monday. The developers accuse Scribble Byte Scramble of holding them hostage over the course of its development, forcing the trio of developers to work in squalid conditions and denying them time to maintain basic personal hygiene (particularly the artists). Although it was worried that the reunion might prompt the moment to overflow with emotion and awkwardness causing incalculable damage, the reunion went ahead as scheduled and reports confirm that the moment was indeed overfilled but no one was injured.

Scribble Byte Scramble was literally found ‘on the ‘lamb’’ over the weekend, riding west on an old ‘bleeping’ sheep. Mystery surrounds Scribble Byte Scramble’s disappearance in late August - what it did, who it met, and where it went all remain unknown for now. 

The future, however, is certain. Evil Objective Studios is ready to put their game to work - Scribble Byte Scramble will be available for iOS devices worldwide on September 22.
