RimWorld name change

Posted September 11th, 2013 by Tynan Sylvester

The game previously known as Eclipse Colony is now known as RimWorld. It turned out eclipses weren’t a big part of the game, and the frontier edge-of-civilization thing is.

    While I like the change to Rimworld, the “story engine” part just dumps cold water on the Rimworld vibe. Why not something like Rimworld Chronicles … Tales .. or Adventures. Says “story” without “saying it.” IMHO. 🙂

  2. Hey, thanks for commenting!

    Chronicles is a possibility. I tend to dislike that word but I think it would work.

    In any case, the primary title is definitely just Rimworld (in fact, I may just reduce it to that single word); any subtitle will be of much lesser importance.

    If anyone has any other thoughts of naming/subtitling I’m open to ideas. I’m too close to the project to have a good perspective on it.

  3. Name changed to just Rimworld. Thanks for the point-out, you weren’t the only one but yeah, perspective of numbers.

    I’ve also sleazily edited the post. Love being admin sometimes.
