6waves Lolapps denies breaking NDA in Triple Town lawsuit

Following the filing of an infringement suit by social game dev Spry Fox against publisher 6waves Lolapps, 6waves has now denied that it has broken a non-disclosure agreement with the Triple Town developer.
Following the filing of a copyright infringement suit by social game developer Spry Fox against publisher 6waves Lolapps, 6waves has now denied that it has broken a non-disclosure agreement with the Triple Town developer. Spry Fox sued 6waves last week over its latest release Yeti Town, which Spry Fox claims is a "blatant copy of Triple Town." 6Waves Lolapps released Yeti Town in December as a free app for iOS devices. When originally asked whether the game was too similar to Spry Fox's Triple Town, 6waves Lolapps chief product officer Arjun Sethi said that taking criticism of this sort was "just part of a natural process." The company has now stated that no NDA has been broken, and that Yeti Town was actually developed by a company that 6waves only acquired last month, Escalation Studios. "While it's not included in the lawsuit, the authors suggest that our business development team shared information with our game development team about Spry Fox’s title," 6waves chief executive Rex Ng told Venturebeat. "I want to be very clear: this accusation is unjustified and plainly not true. We have not broken the NDA signed between 6L and Spry Fox," he continued. He added that Yeti Town was released in December 2011, and developed "in isolation from 6waves by a company we acquired in January 2012 - a month after the game had launched." Gamasutra has contacted Spry Fox for comment.
