For years, I'm trying to find out whatever happened to the game "Virtually Board Snowboarding II" for the #Nokia N-Gage that was pushed hard as a launch title and then suddenly disappeared from all ads and press material after mid-2003 - never to be heard of again.

If someone knows anyone who worked on the game back then, please let me know!

Personally, I wish that the "code red" response that ChatGPT inspired at Google wasn't to launch a dozen AI products that their red teams and AI ethicists have warned them not to release, but to combat the tsunami of AI-generated SEO spam bullshit that's in the process of destroying their core product. Instead, they're blissfully launching new free tools to generate even more of it.
