Well, after some serious soul searching, and what seemed like an algorithm that ran through every possible combination of names, we got a name.
DTSQ is now Dungeon Crawlers!
We're very excited, we like the title. It doesn't do the proper homage that "Busters" did, but it definitely fits the theme, especially since the game is a 'Dungeon Crawl'.
In case anyone is interested in the story of "Dungeon Busters", here it is. On July 29th, Mindspark Interactive copyrighted the name. We definitely had the idea to name the game "Dungeon Busters" well over a year ago, but we didn't copyright it, and we weren't sure that we would use it (lesson learned). They also grabbed the domain "DungeonBusters.com". Then, about 2-3 weeks ago, the name of their game suddenly changed to "Dungeon Rampage". It appears that the game has fully moved over to that name. All memories of the busters name have been removed from the game, but Mindspark still owned the copyright. We tried reaching out to them, and we succeeded in getting in touch with the right people, but the process would simply have been too costly. So here we are, with our new name.
Also, a little update about the game:
- Banshee Queen level is now in, and she's awesome.
- We added a cool glowing sign that marks the end of the level so that players don't leave the level before they want to
- chapter 3 is almost complete.
