2011 release renamed to: G STRING BETA. The Dec. 19 2011 release is now referred to as a beta release- read the mod's "news" to see why. Download the beta in the mod's "downloads" section.

Most likely this will be the final name to differentiate it from the beta and make more searchable on google. And also because it fits both the end-time theme of the game and also this release being the apex of along development cycle IRL.
This way both old players who like the name are happy and new players will be less confused as well- and it sounds cool. Hopefully everyone is satisfied.
Any thoughts? Lemme know.
During the process of going retail and contacting VALVe the issue of a possible name change came up. It's not that a game with this title can't go on Steam but people are concerned about the marketability of something that sounds like G String, essentially a woman undergarment.
For short it might get lost in a sea of women's undies links on google. The long-term marketability is what's the issue here.
The arrangement is, as always: you decide:
If you have better suggestions we are open but also this is easiest so the logo doesn't change much. If you think this is an awful idea we stick to G String and forget this happened, again: it's up to you.
Please let me know what you think below, I really want to know.
