3w ago - Curve Studios Lead Designer Sam Robinson announced today that Stealth Bstard is now Stealth Inc - Clone in the Dark and confirmed it is coming to PSN.
To quote: It brings me great pleasure to announce that the renaming competition for Stealth Bstard, our wonderfully nefarious stealth-puzzle-platformer, was a complete success!
Rather than picking just one of our favorite entries, we've chosen two and fused them together to create one ultimate, unified gaming title: Stealth Inc. - A Clone in the Dark!
It's with this we'd like to congratulate Ash Baker for 'Stealth Inc.' (and for the other 250 entries submitted thereafter) and Ben Collins for 'A Clone in the Dark'. You will both be awarded a PS Vita, a copy of Stealth Inc. - A Clone in the Dark when it's released and you will both appear in the credits of the game!
You are both stars and we are eternally grateful to you both for coming up with a clean name that our coarse minds were incapable of formulating!
If you yourself entered one of the above ideas for a game title but are not listed as a winner, this is because we had to accept winning entries on a first come, first serve basis... we simply do not have that many PS Vitas to give away! Take solace in the fact that your mind is powerful and the world...
