Candy Jam cocks a snook at King’s trademark claim

By Brenna Hillier, Wednesday, 22 January 2014 01:33 GMT

Indie developer Cariboo has launched Candy Jam, a game jam inspired by Candy Crush Saga King’s trademark on the word “candy”. The only rules of the jam are to “make a game involving candies. Consider using the word ‘candy’ several times, also ‘scroll’, ‘saga’ and ‘apple’ might give bonus points.” To avowed purpose of the jam is “because trademarking common names is ridiculous”. Got a game that fits the bill? Submit it to the jam. The deadline is February 3.
