Yes, CS2D was originally called "Counter-Strike 2D" because the initial idea was to make a 2D clone of Counter-Strike. In April 2017 however it was decided to rename it to "CS2D". With release 188.8.131.52 the name "CS2D" became official. From this time on Unreal Software is always referring to the game as "CS2D". The name "Counter-Strike 2D" is not used anymore.
There are several reasons for the new name:
- feature set: CS2D became much more than just a copy of Counter-Strike. It has new weapons, Lua scripting support and new game modes like a Zombie mode.
- being an independent game: We want to keep Counter-Strike's gameplay because it's fun but we don't want to be seen just as a 1:1 clone anymore.
- legal reasons: Just copying the name "Counter-Strike" could potentially lead to legal problems.
Why CS2D then? It still implies that this is related to Counter-Strike (which is often called "CS")?!
This has been decided because we don't want to confuse people too much. There are many people who played CS2D years ago already. They still should know the origins of the game when they come across it again. (and... oh well... we can just keep our beloved domain CS2D.com that way! Haha!)
