Time for some bit of transparency. We released our game, Not a Clone last Thursday, but that journey wasn't without some bumps. As you would expect from a satirical game, we did receive a rejection from Apple once, and had to make a few minor changes to the game so they would approve it on the AppStore. Their concern was that our app mimicked the home screen and AppStore too well. For reference, here are the two screens in question:

And hey, it gave us a little time to add in an Easter Egg as part of the completion bonus! Have you found it yet? Let us know!

As a quick reminder, Not a Clone is available now on iPhones, iPads, and Androids!
