Indie game developer Notion Games announced via Twitter that it will change the name of its game, Super Ubi Land, following concerns expressed by Ubisoft over potential confusion and possible brand infringement. Super Ubi Land has no connection to Ubisoft, obviously.
The game was announced in January and successfully raised $6,333 from nearly 300 backers in February on Kickstarter.
The game is being developed for Wii U, Windows PC, Mac and Linux for release later this year.
Making the announcement on Twitter, the developer said that Ubisoft is doing the right thing in protecting its branding:
Been exchanging emails with Ubisoft. Unfortunately, we have to change the title of #SuperUbiLand. Stay tuned.— Notion_Games (@NotionGamesLLC) May 6, 2013
Later the developer defended Ubisoft's actions:
@granabanana They don't want Notion infringing on their brand. They're being fair. And I won't disagree about how awesome the game is!— Notion_Games (@NotionGamesLLC) May 6, 2013
