Fight Trademarking Common Words with the Candy Jam
King.com (Candy Crush Saga), the folks causing many an exasperated tweet over their trademarking of the word “Candy” and their silly attempt to block Stoic’s trademark of The Banner Saga over the use of the word “Saga” are going to get some sticky sweet trademark trolling justice.
Introducing the Candy Jam, a game jam where there is one goal: make a game involving candy and using the word “candy” as many times as p0ssible. The anonymous organizers are also giving out bonus points to all those who throw in the words “saga,” “scroll,” “apple,” “edge,” and “memory.”
Cheers to the folks who put this together, and if you want to take part, the deadline for submissions is February 3. Submit your Candy Apple Memory Scroll Saga creation at the Candy Jam website.
