EDGE, the critically acclaimed iOS game from 2009 (which also kicked off the eventual downfall of Tim Langdell's all-encompassing claim to "Edge" as a trademark), is now coming to PC and Mac via Steam. The game will be available Aug. 11.
Locked in a research laboratory at the bottom of the sea, an alien lifeform breaks from its captivity and mounts an escape. That's the premise of Perfect Cell by Mobigame, our iGame of the Day.
Edge, the iPhone game that kicked off the latest and nastiest battle over over trademark rights to the word in video games, is back up on the iTunes App Store as "Edge by Mobigame."
Electronic Arts is asking the United States to cancel five trademarks held by Tim Langdell's Edge Games, saying the marks have been effectively abandoned. In comments to Kotaku, EA portrayed its actions as done on behalf of the development community.
Tim Langdell's released a lengthy statement - including e-mails between himself and Mobigame - presenting his version of events in his efforts to protect the trademark "Edge," and defending himself against the portrayal of his actions by the gaming press.
Edge, for the iPhone and iPod Touch, may remind you of Marble Madness with its otherdimensional motifs and tactile controls. But is it more than just pushing around a cube where spheres once rolled?
