The Choose Your Own Adventure publishers are trying to get the phrase banned from Itch.io

  • Chooseco, which publishes the famous Choose Your Own Adventure series, is apparently trying to stop indie game developers from using the phrase “choose your own adventure.” It’s sending trademark infringement notices to the Itch.io gaming storefront, and so far, they’ve resulted in four game pages being suspended.
  • We understand that they need to protect their brand and are happy to work with them to ensure that their trademark is not violated.” Chooseco apparently contacted the platform about four months ago as well, which resulted in one game getting suspended.
  • (The common abbreviation “CYOA” also apparently hasn’t triggered any notices.) It’s a widely accepted informal genre name, and Itch.io is a platform that favors offbeat, often free-of-charge games from independent developers.
