Any specifics and opinions on MA and their history of choosing partners aside, I don't know it to be customary or any kind of moral obligation in the software world that a company has to introduce each and every development partner to the public. They'll do that e.g. when a strategic partnership between equals is formed, but not normally cluck over every subcontractor like a chicken every time it lays an egg. The smaller one on the other hand would boast about being hired by so-and-so, unless required by contract to hush it up. Most normal thing in the world to advertise your customer references. That said, with knowing a thing or two about Android app programming, Virtual Tycoon is a shoddy piece of work you'd praise a 10-year-old for if he turned it in as homework in his first programming class, before you start teaching him where to find all the building blocks he didn't have to try and re-invent. I didn't try Compet myself but heard others say it's actually a decent app, from a mere technical standpoint that is, regardless of what one thinks of the idea and (missing) connection with EU. I wouldn't suspect these two come from the same company if I wasn't told so.
