Where did the name ‘Facepunch’ originate from?

When we were making Facewound we were brainstorming names – and wanted something stupidly macho. There were two names in the running towards the end, facepunch and facewound.

Facewound was chosen as the name for the game, and we decided that facepunch was too funny sounding to just leave to die – so we called our company Facepunch. I’m using the term company loosely here – because it was just a few guys in a chat room at the time.

Little did we know that years later the name Facepunch would be referenced in a Twilight movie – which lead hordes of middle aged single women to assume that we stole the name from there.
