Paul Johnson, owner of Great Big War Game developer Rubicon Mobile, has attacked the Windows RT App Store in a website update, describing the service as "born to fail". A port of the company's best-selling iOS and Android game Great Big War Game cost around $16,000 to create, while bringing in just $84 worth of sales.
"A week after release we have made the princely sum of GBP 52 [approx. $84] in sales," he wrote.
"That's not a typo. And despite this, and the fact that Great Big War Game is one of only several halfway decent launch titles, Microsoft have confirmed they will not give us any promotional features or help us with visibility in any way."
