    It would make sense if it was green. I hope it isn’t; I don’t like green much.

    I have a feeling the logo will be blue.

    Let’s hope the logo is good. πŸ™‚

    I thought I had a decent chance at winning, but I guess if 500+ people entered, my chances are now probably very slim. I am excited to see a new logo, and I hope they make a good decision. I also hope they announce it on time πŸ˜€

  8. Sandy already said that they aren’t changing the name of Game Maker.

    From a marketing perspective, changing the name of a product is one of the hardest and worst things you can do. All of your reputation down the drain.

    What have you heard?! That is a ridiculous suggestion and would go down as the biggest mistake YYG have made so far.

    Game Maker is Game Maker. How many users found the program by Googling “Game Maker”. Lots I’d bet. I did.

    Besides “YoYoGames Game Creation Tool Blog” doesn’t sound very good. πŸ˜›

    Whoa! 500+ submissions! I planned to enter but stupid me didn’t read the fine print about not being able to use the letters “GM”.

    …I wonder if they plan to rename/re-brand the product…which would be a really bad idea considering the SEO of “game maker”.
