Stealth Bastard Gets Profanity-Free Title for PSN Release


Curve Studios has chosen two winners in the contest to give downloadable indie game Stealth Bastard a new name for its PS3 and Vita release.

Stealth Bastard, Curve Studios’ stealth platformer, is heading to the PlayStation Network this summer–but it won’t be taking its original title. After the PlayStation Blog announced a “tactical naming contest” for the PSN version earlier this month, over 3,500 gamers submitted their profanity-free title ideas, and indie developer has picked not one, but two winners. According to lead designer Sam Robinson, there was more than one entry the developers wanted to keep, so “we’ve chosen two and fused them together to create one ultimate, unified gaming title.” As a result, Stealth Bastard is now Stealth Inc. – A Clone in the Dark.

According to Robinson, some of the other notable contest entries were Stealth Orgasm, Ze goggles! Zey do something!, and El Chappo Stealtho, but in the end “there could be only one… well, two!” Along with the announcement, the PlayStation Blog also posted a few new screens.

Stealth Bastard: Tactical Espionage Arsehole was originally released for the PC in 2011; a deluxe version is currently available on Steam for $9.99. Stealth Inc. – A Clone in the Dark will be available on the PSN this summer.
