Fuddrucker’d

I don’t normally post links to this kind of stuff, but since it involves a game designer getting ripped off by a large corporation, I just can’t help it. Apparently whoever programs the Fuddruckers website hotlinked to a Flash-based version of a game called Burgertime hosted on the author’s own website. They didn’t even bother to swipe the code, just linked to the game as if it were their own.

Of course, this means the author can do whatever he wants to do to what’s attached to that link. And he did. Late on a three-day weekend. Ouch.

  1. Interesting. The Fuddruckers site was down yesterday, and now today the original post I linked to has been removed. The game’s been removed from the Fuddruckers site, which is now back up. Strange things are afoot at the Circle K. There’s bound to be more to this story. I wonder if we’ll ever hear it?

  3. FUDDRUCKER CORPORATION SOMEHOW AQUIRED THE GAME, SUPPOSEDLY ILLEGALY AND POSTED THE LINK TO THE GAME. THE AUTHOR THEN TOOK IT UPON HIMSELF TO HACK INTO THE FUDDS SIGHT AND REWRITE THE LINK TO DEROGATORY REMARKS ABOUT FUDDS AND APPARENTLY SOME SMUT SIGHTS. I WORK FOR FUDDS, THOUGHT THIS WAS KIND OF FUNNY IN A WAY. WE GOT SEVERAL CALLS ABOUT IT, LIKE WE CAN DO ANYTHING FROM OKLAHOMA… ANYWAYS, THE SIGHT WAS DOWN THE NEXT DAY BECAUSE THEY WERE REMOVING THE GAME AND SOLVING THE ISSUE (HOPEFULLY) ITS FUNNY TO SEE HOW FARSPREAD THIS IS AROUND THE NATION, IVE SEEN SEVERAL POSTS ON DIFFERENT SITES ABOUT IT.

    Since the link directed to the game author’s website, he didn’t have to “hack” anything. He merely had to change what was at that link (which was on his site so he can post anything within his host’s T&C); he didn’t have to access the Fuddrucker’s site at all.

    Just so you know.
