Goodbye Confetti Carnival – Hello Splatters.

It’s done. After almost a year and a half walking around, showing off a game by the name of Confetti Carnival – we’ve finally decided to give our baby a new name – “The Splatters”.

“hey, why did you change the name? in a weird way I kinda like it” – one might say…

Confetti Carnival was chosen back in the day when we needed to write something under “Name of game:______” during a submission to a games contest. Since our game was nameless at the time, we started throwing names in the air until we hit Confetti Carnival. It was a combination of the Confetti that comes out of bombs as they blew up + the general ‘let’s put on a show’ spirit of the game – enter Carnival).

Is this the last header with Confetti Carnival in it?

Probably.

Confetti Carnival has its pros (like being at the top of the list for the IGF contest :)) but it also has its flaws. And the more we showed the game to people, the more we realized that the name doesn’t tell anything about the game. This could sometimes be a good thing and add to the curiosity of the one hearing about it for the first time. But in our case, it didn’t charge some people’s curiosity in a good way.

SO. Even though we started liking the name a lot and got attached to it in a weird way – we always knew, in the back of our heads, that we’ll need to find a new name someday…

Someday is here: Confetti Carnival is now named Splatters (a good line for the search engines, don’t you think?).

Hope you like it…

Last message from a fan…

And to really say goodbye to our previous name, we would like to show you our first(!) and probably last(!) fan-art we received for Confetti Carnival. It was created by Roel Schenk from the Netherlands and we were absolutely excited to receive it!

Thank you Roel.
