Curious coincedence, the definition of “Tetrical”

December 13th, 2007 4 comments

When I named the game Tetrical, I didn’t know that it was actually a real word. I was simply mashing together “Tetra”, a prefix meaning four, with the name of my other game, “Cubical“. While searching for sites that have linked to my game, I came across the existing definition of the word Tetrical:

Tetrical: Forward; perverse; harsh; sour; rugged.

From the comments I see from most people that play the game, I feel like they might agree with that definition more.

Also, if you are a game developer that posts your game to multiple portals with their own APIs, you may want to only include the API for each domain as needed.
