Twisted Pixel CEO: No Legal Action Planned Over Capcom’s MaXplosion

Twisted Pixel is probably the coolest collection of cats on the planet. Not only do they have a decent sense of humor and an affinity for developing clever games, but they are also humble realists. When asked about a recent Capcom mobile game (MaXplosion for iOS) that some say blatantly rips off Twisted Pixel’s popular ‘Splosion Man, the company’s CEO gave an honest answer:

"We’re definitely not going to pursue legal action," Wilford told Joystiq. "While I think the similarities are pretty nauseating, we’re too small to take on a company like Capcom. That, and we owe them one for inventing Mega Man, so we’ll let them slide."

Turning to humor to deflect any perceived animosity, Twisted Pixel’s Wilfrod added, "We just need to keep our heads down making the next thing so that Capcom has something to steal next year." He said that he hopes Capcom is "not counting on the fact that indies can’t fight back." "We’ll just have to make our own mobile game," he said. "We’ll let you know when we have something on the mobile front to talk about, but now we have added incentive!"
