Limbo of the Lost devs speak up

Remember that game we showed you not long ago that ripped off Oblivion (among several other titles)? Well the developer has been pretty quiet about the entire issue, until now. Hit the jump for the official response from Magestic.

In response to the shocking notification that some alleged unauthorized copyrighted materials submitted by sources external to the development team have been found within the PC game Limbo of the Lost, we (the development team) have given our consent and full cooperation to both publishers who are recalling all units from all territories immediately.

Please be assured that we do not condone in anyway the use of unauthorized copyrighted materials and if we had been made aware earlier, we would of course have ceased development of the product and rectified the issue prior to the publication process.

To the best of our knowledge no one at Majestic, [European publisher] G2Games or [North American publisher Tri Synergy, Inc.] knew about this infringement and knowingly played any part in it.

We can only apologise to all regarding this issue, as a team we are shocked and mortified regarding these events and we continue to work with said publishers in order to rectify the issue.

I just don't see how that many people could have possibly laid eyes on this game without someone recognizing the obviously ripped-off material. It's good that they're cooperating with getting the game pulled from shelves, but I want to hear just how it was possible for this stuff to make it into the game in the first place.
