FACT: I'm going to sue the sh*t out of the Bit.Trip guys

A little while ago, Destructoid discovered that the next game in Gaijin Games' Bit.Trip series would be titled Bit.Trip RUNNER. Thanks to a low-res screenshot of the game in our most anticipated Wii Games of 2010 list yesterday, we also learned that the game will most likely be a sidescroller.

This is an outrage.

You may have heard of a little game that took the Internet by storm a few months back. A game that set the World Wide Web positively ablaze with buzz and critical acclaim, garnering over one hundred downloads and at least two links from places other than Destructoid and my own Twitter account. That game was made by myself, Jonathan Holmes, and Ashley Davis. It was, of course, called Runner. It can be downloaded here.

And now these pricks from Gaijin Games are releasing a game with the exact same name, belonging to the exact same gameplay genre. They want to latch onto the unbridled popularity and downright world-changing mechanics of Runner that were in no way ripped off from Battletoads or Passage. And I won't goddamn stand for it.

"But," you may be thinking, "but what if Gaijin Games had never heard of your game and the titles are just a coincidence?" Sure, I would reply. A reasonable question...were it not for the fact that Gaijin Games' very own Alex Neuse reviewed Runner a few weeks after its release. I demand vengeance.

For this reason, I have decided to turbo-sue Gaijin Games for a breach of some sort of law or contract or thing that I will determine at a later date. My lawyer and I will litigate Neuse and his cohorts into oblivion. When the dust and legalese have settled, you can be assured that only one Runner shall remain.

Get ready for war, Neuse.

Did you get your pledge in for The Deer God? I didn't, because these days I try to severely limit the number of projects I back on Kickstarter, but damn did it look neat -- visually and conceptually. Crescent Moon Games ende...more

Channel your inner rock star and smash up a hotel in Check-in, Knock-out

Breaking other people's things is expensive. I don't suggest you do it unless you have a lot of money. If you have that itch, a better way to live out the fantasy may be to destroy hotel rooms in Check-in, Knock-out. A newly...more

Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the y...more
