And damn, that image brings back memories. Probably the first iOS game I ever played.

Gah! The story in SimStapler is way too complex and twisting. I prefer a simpler more straightforward story line. I just couldn't relate to the protagonist either.

It was actually a stapler they had lying around their office, and they just thought something along the lines of 'there sure are a lot of these Sim games coming out. Wouldn't it be funny if one was just about stapling?' Steve Tze mentioned they still have that stapler.
They're still amused by how Jared went viral, too. Here's one of the things Colin said:
Only the Freeverse guys could've pulled off such ridiculous accidental success.

It was really sad how it all turned out for Freeverse... especially when it was the company that inspired me to become a Mac game dev.
DeNA sucks... and I'm not saying that just because of what they did to Freeverse, but they treat their games with the same level of respect and eagerness to kill them off (along with the required servers to play those games) once they've gotten the money they wanted out of them.
