Here's some interesting news. Not only has Alex May and Rudolf Kremers' Dyson been given a new release date after being delayed - we can expect it to hit our PC screens on October 20th - but it would appear that the guys have decided to opt for a name change.

A competition is now being held over at Direct2Drive named 'The Game-Formerly-Known-As-Dyson Naming Competition'. The blurb reads as follows:

Come up with a new name for Dyson that best encompasses the mood and themes of the game. All entries will be emailed to the developers, who will pick and announce the best name on or around Tuesday, September 29th. When the game releases on approximately October 20th, it will be titled with the winning name!

The winner will receive a copy of the game plus any two other games of their choice from D2D. Rules for the contest can be found here.

I queried Rudolf on the matter and he explained that the duo were not asked to change the name, but decided it was 'better to avoid confusion' with a certain brand of the same name.

Other than that, it's worth noting that pre-orders are now being taken on the game, with 25% off for anyone who grabs it before release.
