Back in October, Boing Boing blogged about a new iPhone game in development by South Park creator Matt Stone.

The app functioned beautifully, with the ability to stream clips, grab wallpapers for your device, read news, and browse the complete episode index. Also: choose character likenesses as "contact images" for your iPhone -- assign a face to the phone book entry of your choice.

It looks like the app will never see the light of day. Although the content is pretty much what you see on the show, Boing Boing says the app was rejected from the Apps Store as "potentially offensive." Twice.

In discussions over the South Park app Apple told the developers that the standards would evolve, citing that when iTunes first launched it didn't sell any music with explicit lyrics.

There may be hope yet, but I wouldn't hold my breath. You'll have to get your South Park fix with iTunes downloads and free episodes on the Web.
