Bojac the Centaur and Bojack Horseman! OH NO!!!

Today I'm going to address a sort of "elephant in the room" concerning our Wii U game project, Of Mages & PagesPreviously we teased a new character named Bojac the Centaur.  As many of you may be aware, Netflix recently released a new series, Bojack Horseman.  The irony is not lost on us. 

This is obviously just one of those "morphic field" type of things Captain Jack Harkness mentioned in Torchwood: Miracle Day.  Two completely unrelated projects arrived at a similar idea completely independent of one another.  I don't know how long Bojack Horseman took to come to fruition and it doesn't really matter.  I originally came up with the name Boajc for a character in a Midieville script I wrote back in 2008.

However, in light of the new show and to hopefully save us from any possible legal issues later on, we are going to be changing the name of our centaur character to something else.  What that name will be, we're not sure of as yet, but we will let you know once we've decided.  It's just too similar to risk it and honestly, it's not that big of a deal.  We at 3twins harbor no ill will towards Bojack Horseman, nor anyone involved with that show.  These things happen.  This isn't the first time we've changed something for similar reasons, and it probably won't be the last.
