This and upcoming Yes Lab project is no hoax.

To the great surprise of its creators, a funny new iPhone game critical of Apple’s human rights record was accepted by the iTunes store and is being released today.

The seriously funny new game will sell for 99 cents on iTunes; all proceeds will go to organizations fighting to stop the horrors that smartphone production causes. Read more about Phone Story below. But first, a word from Phone Story’s sponsors…”
