I know American pronunciation can be a bit, special, shall we say, but how for the love of all that’s good & holy do you get from ee-pok to epic???
There’s an insisting NPC in the first town that keep repeating “Epoch” in many sentences, like “Epoch is the key to … something something” , and he made it very clear for me it;s ee-pok, can’t think of it any other way.
They also pronounce “Drumpf” as Trump.
And EA pronounce “gambling” as “surprise mechanics”.
I loved Jim Sterling’s “surprise mechanic” skit at the beginning of one of his videos, though I can’t for the life of me find it…
Edit: There we go, though his videos do tend to have a fair bit of swearing if anyone’s not aware & doesn’t like that kind of thing.
This is how we pronounce it ourselves.
That said - anyone who wants to call our game ‘epic’ is welcome to do so.
Given the scheisse sturm going on currently within the gaming world and some tech company out in CA, I’m going to stick with ee-pock, and secretly whisper subliminally how much it’s that other word as well.
But do you really want people thinking “Last Epic (game they ever made)”? On to of it being just plain wrong.
I don’t get how an O could sound like an I?
Nobody has ever called me Dibster before.
You even got first dibs on Dibster - lucky you!
For those having difficulty with pronunciation …
it’s Epoch as in Ewok, not Epic as in Thick.
But how do you pronounce Ewok? smahll-wo-keys.
