The Zapper!: "Who the Hell Are You?"
Posted: Thursday April 17th, 2008 by

This past monday (4/14), Vitrium, LLC. the current owner of the fantasy MMO Horizons, announced they would be changing the game's name to Istaria. Rick Simmons, president of Vitrium and former CTO of Tulga Games, stated that the name change was initiated to reflect what the game is about and to remove some of the confusion surrounding the previous name. Vitrium purchased Horizons' assets from Tulga in September of last year.

I got an email from Heather/Velea, Horizons' Istaria's Community Manager, yesterday afternoon telling me about the name change. I'd read a few news bits here and there about it, but it was still nice to hear from someone directly. What I didn't know was that another company had purchased the game, reopened the test server, and unlocked the forums.

This name change leaves me with an interesting question though...
I'm kind of attached to the "Horizons" fly. With the name having been officially changed, do I change his name on the zapper? Or just keep it?

What do you guys think?
