As part of the ongoing Triple Town
vs Yeti Town
lawsuit, Triple Town
developer Spry Fox has called out 6waves Lolapps' defense as "disingenuous."
Spry Fox sued 6waves last month
over its latest release Yeti Town
, which Spry Fox claims is a "blatant copy of Triple Town
However, 6waves hit back, saying
that it did not break a non-disclosure agreement with the Triple Town
developer. It said that Yeti Town
was actually developed by a company that 6waves only acquired last month, Escalation Studios.
The company also noted that an Amazon Kindle version of Triple Town
has been available since October 2010.
Spry Fox's David Edery has now given a statement to Gamasutra, in which he questions 6waves' explanation.
"We find it remarkable that 6waves would imply that the existence of the Kindle version of Triple Town
somehow excuses 6waves' behavior," he stated.
"Anyone who has played the Kindle version of Triple Town
knows that it is substantially different from the Facebook and Google+ versions released a year later, and furthermore, that the copyrighted game elements 6waves' is accused of copying are exclusive to the Facebook and Google+ versions of Triple Town
He concluded, "This sort of disingenuous defense will not be of much help to 6waves. Finally, there are additional facts that will be revealed at trial that will clearly establish a linkage between the development team and the business team at 6waves."
