If I learned anything this past week, it's that some people will find any context in which an ethnic slur is not an ethnic slur, or will find some justification for its use, from the name of a video game to that of a football team.
The, uh, not-so-great name a Dutch development team chose for their upcoming browser-based platformer has been cast off in favor of one less cringe-inducing, unintentionally or not. Everyone, say hi to Curio's Starquest.
A browser-based game from a group of students from the Utrecht School of Arts & Technology in the Netherlands starring an adorable raccoon trying to reach the moon sounds like a lovely idea. Just might not want to call it Starcoon.
