Yikes. What a mess. It's clear that Subatomic isn't trying to be malicious in this situation. It seems it was backed into a corner trying to make right on a promise it made to its fans, and found what it felt was the perfect partner with Amazon. While that solution doesn't work for everyone and many fans are becoming angry on the company's official site, Subatomic is still trying to make right.
"Hey guys, we hear you," writes Subatomic's Alec Shobin of the complaints. "We're pulling strings to cut the exclusive period and release in non-US regions ASAP. Don't fret, we don't sell out. We want you to be happy and enjoy Fieldrunners HD, and we'll do whatever it takes to make that happen. Seriously."
I was a bit bummed I couldn't play the game yesterday, free or not, but it's not the end of the world. I can wait a few weeks, if that's what it takes. To those flipping out, take a deep breath: Fieldrunners is good, but like most every videogame, it's not worth throwing a tantrum over.
