So we now have a new official logo for VRTK thanks to dedication of the VRTK community.

We went through many months of ideas and iterations and finally settled on the idea of rather than looking for a cool, high tech logo, we'd go for something fun and memorable. The idea of an animal mascot was born.

Eventually the Pig rose to the top and has become the founding part of the logo and our new mascot.

We don't want to keep calling our beloved VR mascot "Pig" so let's have a competition to name the little chap!


Competition Rules

Please put your name suggestion for the pig as a response to this issue, then after a week of collecting suggestions, I'll short list the best 8 into a straw poll and then have the public vote on their favourite pig name.

The name that is the favourite will be the name of the pig and the first person who posted that name in this issue will be the winner and win a prize of a Steam Game up to the value of $30.00 (You will get to choose any game on Steam up to that value and it will be gifted to your Steam account).

Any offensive names such as curse words, inappropriate words, racism, sexism or any form of discrimination will not be eligible for the competition and the comment to the issue will be deleted. If your comment gets deleted then this is because it was not deemed appropriate for the competition, that decision is final so please don't moan about it :)

Pig in Dutch or Afrikaans is Varken or Vark, respectively. Something along those lines that could work since they've both got V and R in them, also the K in VRTK.

Could combine all that to make a name like Vartken? Or maybe Vortken(almost sounds like pork)?

I think I'll continue playing with it.

Great logo!

My submission: Vera

So it's kinda like VR, get it? It's early and I haven't had coffee yet...

Also, we definitely need VRTK Pig sticker for backs of laptops/fronts of desktops

I as well like names with VR in them, especially in the beginning and end, so here's my short list by personal preference:

VictoR (cool since it also sounds like victory)
ValdemaR
VladimiR

I feel the most simple name is always the best so I would just call the pig.....Pinky.

Combining themed words can often work well:
Swive (Swine + Vive)
Pive (Pig + Vive)
Virtuaswine (Virtual + Swine)
Vhog (Virtual + Hog)
Vibacon (Virtual + Bacon)

Maybe he goes by Hamlet, but that's actually his surname, while only his closest (600) friends even know his first name.
