Gabo Can’t Call iPhone Home

by Nick Montfort · , 8:07 am

Yoot Saito, the developer of SimTower and the deeply uncanny Seaman (you remember, the Dreamcast game with the microphone interface and the fishlike creature with the head of a man and the voice of, specifically, Leonard Nimoy) has developed an amusing and odd caveman simulator called Gabo. It runs on the iPhone, but you won’t be able to get it because Apple has nixed the game. I suppose people didn’t want to lick their iPhones anymore after interacting with Gabo.

    Poking a caveman around is “unpleasant” according to apple, and yet they have a bunch of fart apps and one of them makes 10000$ a day. http://venturebeat.com/2008/12/23/iphone-fart-app-pulls-in-nearly-10000-a-day/

    When listing Saito’s oeuvre, we should not forget Odama, the pinball RTS with voice-controlled commands. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odama
