So, a couple of days ago I was going to download openttd on my Amazon Kindle, and a couple of days ago it was originally on the Appstore, and now it is not, WHY ;(

Because I don't care enough to update it on yet another app store for 100 total downloads. I didn't update it on Amazon store since 2017.

Grab .apk file here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/libsdl ... k/OpenTTD/

Ah, that’s a shame - my daughter has a Kindle Fire tablet with the kid-friendly interface, but the kid version will only show apps from the Amazon store, not Google Play or other apps. Hopefully the old version will stick around on the tablet.

If you want to re-publish the app on Amazon Appstore, send me your Amazon dev account name, I'll give you permissions to manage the app. You can take the latest .apk version from Sourceforge link above, it is using the same certificate for app signing. Dealing with dev console, screenshots, and Amazon support will be up to you.

Not sure if I have the time to do that myself at the moment, but it's handy to know that it's an option. :)
