This, and apparently they are making a film:

As far as I know, the game was extremely short, and was supposed to be the first of several episodes (though nothing's been said of the second episode releasing anytime soon).

They may have just shifted resources to the upcoming film.

Question is why do you care? It's just another useless shovelware app/game. Just saying.

Seeing as you've played it, what did you like and dislike about the game?

I heard it bombed in Japan or something; might have something to do with it.

Because they didn't have Danny Devito. We've been over this earlier in the thread.
