So is it <The Next Game> or <The Next Next Game>

Postby Disco Stuie » Wed Mar 02, 2005 12:12 am

I'm a-wondering.

Now that Darwinia is all-but out, and no longer need be referred to commonly as <The Next Game>; how do we refer to whatever it is that IV are cooking up for #3?

We could use a sort of absolute system, where Uplink was just Uplink, or "the first game" or "the one that started it all" etc etc... and then Darwinia is nominatively <The Next Game> for all eternity, and #3 is <The Next Next Game>. Trouble is, it's already getting quite long to type, and, based on the predicted success of this, relative to that of Uplink, #3 is inevitable, and #4 highly likely.

Alternatively, we could say that since Darwinia has (for some time) been named as such, we can refer to it as Darwinia, Uplink, similarly, as just Uplink, and then #3 earns the already-familiar title of <The Next Game>. Hence there will never be a <The Next Next Game> except where people are talking *very* hypothetically, and things are easier to type; on the downside this could lead to ambiguity among those Uplink Vets who are so utterly used to <The Next Game>="Darwinia" that they cannot think otherwise :P

Any views, or am I just being far too complicated? :wink:

Darwinia will always be <The Next Game>.

Chris said that after darwinia's release, <the next next game> will become <the next game>, and it will progress like that.
Can't remember when, but he did say it a while back on IRC

we could call it <The Subsquent Game>

Spose it'll kinda make Icepick's site look silly.

Not really. He said way back then that it wasn't for Darwinia only.
So the site can move on with the titles! :D

I think you'll have to pull Chris away from City of Heroes before we get a <The Next Game> or <The Next Next Game> ;p

Actually, no, don't.
<the next game> might end up being the best MMORPG ever ;)

Well Darwinia was <The Next Game>, but now it has a name, so whatever IV are working on next is now <The Next Game>. At least that is if you look at it logically, which us lot are hardly known for. :lol:

How about <the next game>, but in another language?
I vote for <<sledushye igra>> (pardon my poor transliteration). ^_^
