People worry too much about their project overlapping with someone else’s. Culture is a dialog, not a land-grab.

Also, there's the fact that many interesting projects incorporate ideas that were once used before.

I was worried about having “*somethingsomething* inc.” as my game’s title because I didn’t want to seem like I was like stealth inc.

Agreed! Kazutoshi Iida used Jung's term "synchronicity" in a post mortem once, arguing that several people around the globe can come up to similar ideas if they steep themselves into similar ideas. I think that's why we're seeing a resurgence of management games right now.

For say, 5 years ago the management genre was pretty dead, a lot of people probably thought "hey, I wish this genre came back" and voila! Everyone ripped off each other. I kid of course, but it irritates me endlessly how fast people will accuse products of ripping off.

But, what Kazutoshi lida described as being a synchronicity is not what Jung meant by synchronicity.

I'm aware of that, but that doesn't matter, we can come up with a new term if you like, for now I will describe it in this inexact terms. :) I think what matters is that we're not as singular as one would imagine.
