Google Play Store removed PewDiePug

Just one day after I made a video of how my most successful Game called “ PewDiePug “ starts paying my bills, Google Play suspended it. In other words removed it from their store.

The reason there for is that I rewarded Players to rate the app in the store. They would get the reward for any rating they give the app but this seem to conflict with the Google Play Content Police.

So it is gone…
This game is my main income stream and was played and loved by hundreds of thousands.

Since they also threatened to delete all my other games and any google related account of mine I updated quickly all other apps using similar „Reward to Rate“ options.

I contacted them to please put my app back live so I can fix the problem.
Else I have to upload a fresh new version of it but would lose touch to the active installs of Players.
Meaning if Players want an updated version they would need to start from the beginning in the new app.

…sad day

  1. Hey man, sucks that your app was taken down and congrats on all the success, always nice to see a fellow dev making some cash doing what they love. But I do think it is a good policy on Google’s part. Stops games/apps getting false positive reviews and they do outline that clearly in there developer program policies. I guess, lesson learned, hopefully you can get a new version up soon, good luck dude.
