As you may have been already informed (Read Facebook link), Apple has removed our game from AppStore because of usage of the Confederate Flag. Ultimate General: Gettysburg could be accepted back if the flag is removed from the game's content.



We accept Apple's decision and understand that this is a sensitive issue for the American Nation. We wanted our game to be the most accurate, historical, playable reference of the Battle of Gettysburg. All historical commanders, unit composition and weaponry, key geographical locations to the smallest streams or farms are recreated in our game's battlefield.



We receive a lot of letters of gratitude from American teachers who use our game in history curriculum to let kids experience one of the most important battles in American history from the Commander's perspective.  



Spielberg’s "Schindler's List" did not try to amend his movie to look more comfortable. The historical "Gettysburg" movie (1993) is still on iTunes. We believe that all historical art forms: books, movies, or games such as ours, help to learn and understand history, depicting events as they were. True stories are more important to us than money.



Therefore we are not going to amend the game's content and Ultimate General: Gettysburg will no longer be available on AppStore. We really hope that Apple’s decision will achieve the desired results.



We can’t change history, but we can change the future.

That as swipe truly has fundamentally changed this country. I hope we can recover but it seems unlikely



R.I.P. U.S.A.


And again...obama, in his book, talks about realizing at a young age that he wouldn't be able to provoke the kind of revolution he sought through force and low level organizing. It's what drove him to politics...



Article is well worth the read...it's almost funny, b/c he's never really hidden things...people just don't want to listen.

Interesting way to put it.



I wonder if generations from now, Dreams from My Father will be seen in the same light as Mein Kampf.






Maybe Obama will invade Canada or Mexico for some extra living room, and call it African-America.




 
I'll help with the invasion, as long as all the people that style themselves as 'African-Americans' or 'Mexican-Americans' or 'Somali-Americans' fucking move there.

Now, it appears that Apple has decided to join them by pulling many Civil War wargames from the App Store. As of the writing of this story, games like Ultimate General: Gettysburg and all the Hunted Cow Civil War games are nowhere to be found. Apple is famous for reaching for the axe rather than the scalpel when it comes to political issues (like rejecting Hunted Cow's Tank Battle 1942 for depicting Germans and Russians as enemies), so this move doesn't come as a great surprise.

Yep. Hopefully, this will make folks think twice before knee-jerk dismissal of "tin foil hat" theories. What has gone on in this nation since 9/11 would have been completely unheard of in the before time. If I went back and told 1999 me what was coming, I would have keeled over laughing at 2015 me.
