Nitrome’s game came out only two weeks after my game, so they had to have been developing it already. It is kinda murky. My game is more similar to Death Worm than Nitrome’s, but I got permission from JTR and did my best to credit the original creator.
Nitrome’s stance is: “It is like Death Worm but then Death Worm isn’t really original either….there have been lots of eating worm based games in the past. There have been many Sand Worm based games ever since the Tremmors and Dune Movies so it’s like saying if one person makes a zombie based game that nobody else can?”
