Trillek

Is it taboo to ask a question in the Q&A section?

No, I jest. More seriously, where did the name "Trillek" come from in the first place?

(nobody's posting here, so why not? maybe it'll get things started, and if it is taboo to make a first post in a forum section, problem solved.)

There once was a discussion on Slashdot about naming hex numbers, and this was the result. As you can see, they named 10^C "trillek".

Shortly after 0x10c was announced, someone dug that document up and posted on Reddit.

"Trillek" as the name of this game was suggested on #0x10c-dev IRC on 12 Aug 2013 by mrout, and shortly thereafter approved by Shane.

On this topic, the name "Trillek" is meant as a code name, and is definitely not the final name. When we have more of a game a final name will be decided.

I don't particularly love the title, but it would be a huge pain trying to change it after we garner enough popularity; it would be really confusing for everyone following it and the media momentum would slow down significantly. Not to mention that there's virtually no chance that we'll think of a name that will please everyone, or even the majority, which in all likelihood will piss off a good deal of people. We'd also have to change the domain, reddit and IRC names.

I think the ship has already sailed for an ideal time for a title change. At this point it just wouldn't do much good.
