Disney removed Tiny Death Star without telling its developer

Taken down to focus on Star Wars Commander

Disney has pulled two mobile Star Wars games — Tiny Death Star and Star Wars Assault Team — and in the case of the latter, developer Nimblebit wasn’t even given a heads up.

“We had no prior knowledge that the game would be removed and no longer even have a contact at Disney after the recent layoffs,” Ian Marsh told Game Informer. “Suffice to say if you’re a developer looking to partner with Disney this might not be the partnership you’re looking for.”

Speaking to Pocket Gamer, he added that it was “a significant source of revenue for us, so it stings that much more.” Marsh also tweeted this, which made me laugh but then I felt bad.

Shame. I always thought Tiny Death Star looked super cute.
