    No problem zip2kx!

    @Del_Duio: Sadly the name will have to change, though I'd like to have "Jarvis" somewhere in the title.

    I am still taking suggestions/ideas!

    Could you not just give it a subtitle?

    "Sadly the name will have to change"

    Why does it though? I don't think many people will give you any crap about it honestly.
    And if it does well- which it looks to me like it will- then you'll have people find it by googling "Jarvis game" anyhow.

    Rise up, brother chrilley!

    It's entirely possible he's already consulted a lawyer on the subject. Or it's possible that he just wants to stay on the safe side, especially seeing as how people aren't as likely to remember a game called Jarvis.

    Take it from a guy who changed the name of one of their games from "Galactic Battle" to "Echobyte Heroes": You want the name of your game to stand out.

    Chrilley-

    You want to change the name because you believe that Marvel or Disney might give you trouble,but I don't think that jarvis infringes on their copyright/Trademark.

    For those who don't know,Marvel has a character named jarvis who is iron man's AI/butler.In the more recent movies jarvis became the vision,so he will no longer be used in the movies and while Jarvis is still used in the comics he is a minor character.

    On top of that companies cannot just own any name.You can have a character called "Dora" but you cannot have a show named "Dora the explorer".You can have a character named tony as long as their last name isn't stark.You can only infringe on someone's copyright or trademark if your work is too similar to theirs.

    So you can have a game/character called jarvis,but your character can't be a butler or computer AI.

    Jarvis is just a man's name, not even a big company would want to open that can of legal worms.

    Guys we've had this discussion a few pages back, I'm seeing a lot of the same arguments already answered there

    Since then I've had the opportunity to speak with more experienced people than me on the matter. Two of which are lawyers who both recommended that I at least give the game a title that doesn't already exist on the same or another platform within the market. It's not bullet proof but much better than having the exact same title as another trademarked app.

    "Jarvis" can still be within the title but not just "Jarvis"(despite how much I like it).

    If it were me I'd totally call it

    "Jarvis: Go ahead, try and sue me!"

    Oh I totally would haha.
