And this is what Candy Crush Saga looks like.

King.com aren't seeking money. They "just" want Stoic's application for a trademark on The Banner Saga to be refused (which would force the developers to change the game's name).

We contacted Stoic, but they're unable to comment about legal matters. We also contacted King.com, and will update if we hear back. [Update, Jan. 22]: King replied through a spokesperson that "King has not and is not trying to stop Banner Saga from using its name," but that it must oppose the trademark application to preserve its own position under trademark law." King has applied for a video games trademark on "saga." More here.

I've seen some stupid legal actions in my time here, but this one takes the stupid cake.
