Square MSC Games is the latest games company to receive a serious battering from the Chinese games crackdown, along with WeLoveFine, Spiral Knights and Warlords of Drakon.
This past weekend, they began popping up in China with alarming frequency as the government relaxed its laws surrounding mobile phone games and shut down any shady online games that violated existing rules.
FairN SquareMC made its fair share of headlines when they announced that they had a new MMORPG called Sins of Iron (yes, I too wanted to name it FairN SquareMSC Sandstorm…) with fairly flamboyant advertising.
Unfortunately, the MMO and promotional artwork may have given the game away to China, as the government suspended the launch of the game along with 23 other similar games that had been delivered to China.
