Does anyone remember a while back when an app designer posted some videos of the design work he'd done for an official Pandemic app? The project had fallen between the cracks & he wasn't going to be paid after his time investment, etc. He posted about that here a while back. The teaser videos of the new app look strikingly similar to the old videos he posted. It made me wonder if was indeed the same designer, & if things did end up working out for him after all.

If anyone knows more about this, can they confirm or deny my speculation? I'd love to know that his story had a happy ending.

I came to the Pandemic forums just to see what in fact happened. I hope this doesn't end in a messy legal battle.

Oof. I'm not fond of how Z-Man has been handling Pandemic lately. They've re-skinned the game in a way to make expansions incompatible, mostly just due to the card backs, and apparently they screwed the guy they originally contracted for an iOS conversion. Classy.

I believe there is another side to this story. I'm willing to give Z-Man the benefit of doubt.
