Name change?

New releases and general discussions.

Any chance of changing the name to Construkt or something? It's hard to find anything on this on google/youtube because the word Construct applies to thousands of other things.

"Construct" gives the Scirra site as the first two results in Google for me. I think the name is fine. Intentional misspellings are... well, they're lame, to put it bluntly.

We'd also sabotage our own high Google rating for 'Construct', so I don't think we'll ever change it!

Being #1 for Construct doesn't mean anything unless they're actually looking for the game maker. Other countries will get other results - I get www.construct.org.uk.

Sorry it seems game maker is already taken.
On the other hand:

That's quite likely going to change. Construct hasn't even launched yet. There's a whole lot of people out there waiting until v1.0, and when that happens you will see the user base for Construct rise in number dramatically, which will in turn raise Google ratings across the board. It's already the #1 Google result in several countries and it's still just in beta... when it finally has a proper launch I don't think anyone will have any trouble finding it.

Patience, my friend ;).

As for searching for "game makers" yeah, there's a bit of a monopoly on that one thanks to YoYo Games and all. Links to GM and YoYo related stuff take up the entire front page of Google. It can't really be helped.

We wouldn't change our name anyway. We'd instantly go back to zero pagerank on search engines! And we have a top ranking to lose...
