Peter Molyneux, the man behind Fable and Black & White, will be renaming the new game that he is developing. The game, which was originally titled “Curiosity” was to be the first in a set of 22 experimental social media games.
However, since the “Curiosity” Rover recently touched down on Mars, Molyneux is rethinking the name. NASA has not banned him from using it, but he fears that since searches for Mars Rover information on Google are so popular this will overshadow any searches for his game and kill his chances of reaching the first page of results.
He hopes to find a new name which will be simple to search for on Google and easy for players to find.
In a series of Tweets, Molyneux hinted at the issue and then asked readers and gamers to help his studio, 22Cans, come up with a new name.
