Snuggle Truck controversy[edit]

Owlchemy originally developed a game called Smuggle Truck with a premise of smuggling immigrants into the US. The game was inspired by Owlchemy developer Yilmaz Kiymaz's experience as a Turkish citizen attempting to stay in the US after graduating. Apple rejected the game for its App Store due to the controversial subject matter. Owlchemy retitled the project Snuggle Truck and changed the premise to taking fuzzy animals to the zoo. The rebranded game was accepted into the app store[3]
