Vlambeer's Wasteland Kings rebranded as Nuclear Throne - still on its way to the Vita

It's incredibly refreshing to read about companies settling potential disputes like adults without hurling cease and desist letters at one another.

And that's exactly what happened recently with Vlambeer, who changed the name of its upcoming PS Vita action roguelike game Wasteland Kings to Nuclear Throne.

The name change happened when an employee of InXile Entertainment - the studio responsible for the classic 1988 RPG Wasteland and the Kickstarter for Wasteland 2 - contacted Vlambeer and expressed some concern about gamers confusing Wasteland Kings with Wasteland 2.

Rather than posture or threaten lawsuits, Vlambeer's Rami Ismail explained that the two companies had a quick and amicable Skype conversation that ended with Vlambeer agreeing to rename Wasteland Kings.

Noble bearing


But they didn't just jump right into Nuclear Throne.

Other names like Genetic Miracles Fish & The Gang Vault Runners, Trash Monarchs, and GUN GODZ: Legend of Yung Venuz: Originz were bandied about, but at the end Nuclear Throne was the clear winner.

Despite the name change, the fundamentals of the game remain unaltered: it'll be a action-focused, top-down roguelike game from the creative minds that brought you the Gold Award-winning Ridiculous Fishing.

If you're interested in seeing how Nuclear Throne is coming along, Vlambeer will be livestreaming the development over at nuclearthrone.com on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am GMT.
