We’ve always adhered strictly to the KISS mantra – ‘Keep It Simple, Stupid’.
To us, ‘keeping it simple’ meant a fuss-free and clean (yet powerful) interface, keeping it as intuitive as possible, cutting back on features and leaving only what people need.
We know that unnecessary complexity only leads to confusion and frustration and hey, we want to keep you as happy as possible!
But all this while, we’ve completely overlooked something … which we only realized just a matter of weeks ago.
“WHAT THE HECK IS A ‘MAKI’?!”
Oops, our bad.
Well, here’s where we’d launch into our long grandmother’s story about how ‘Maki’ is a Japanese rice roll which contains loads of juicy fresh ingredients. And challenges on GameMaki are like fresh ingredients dished out daily by our loyal users. So, grouping challenges is like making a deliciously juicy ‘Maki’. (Not to mention how it ties in so nicely with our name, ‘GameMaki’!)
At this point, we’d receive two distinct responses. It’ll either be (1) a look of realization and an exclamation of “Wow, that’s so creative!” or (2) a look of complete bewilderment and “Wow, that’s … umm, abstract.”
So from now on, let’s just call a spade a spade, shall we?
‘Maki’ will no longer be called ‘Maki’. They’re just games. And games on GameMaki are a group of challenges. So, it’s time to go play away!
No more fancy schmancy names for us. They’re counter-intuitive.
