CrunchGear's Nicholas Deleon reports that Eric Deckers
came upon a form of the n-word while playing Every Word.
After describing what he saw and his disbelief, Deckers added in an update:
' Amazon's Senior PR Director for Kindle, Stephanie Mantello, sent me a note that they had halted distribution of the game, were going to fix it, and then begin redistributing the game.
They would also make an updated version of the game available to people who had already downloaded it. '
In CrunchGear's report, they also include an update:
' UPDATE Just got word from Amazon, and they’re going to stop distributing the game because “the dictionary it uses does not block some inappropriate words.”
Once the offending words are expunged, distribution will resume and an update will be released for people who downloaded the old version.
Fire, extinguished '
And now you know why attempts to download the game won't be successful for awhile.
