Game over: devs can’t spell character name

July 15, 2009

Just a quickie, but was watching the first official trailer for the second Watchman game episode and noticed something I couldn’t pass on.

If you’ve seen the movie or read the comics, you’d know that one of the characters is Nite Owl… note the spelling.

Here’s a frame from the game trailer…

Maybe it's a new character?

Maybe it's a new character?

Not a huge difference but certainly a huge deal and a HUGE fail. Everywhere I have seen, the character is always called Nite Owl and not Night Owl. Spelling mistakes are common (I’m no expert myself) and certainly understandable… in everyday life. But you have to wonder how an official game with the official licence can screw something like this up. Even if it is a crappy, budget title.
