Untitled Escher Game Update

I’ve decided my “untitled Escher game“, i.e. Zoop on a double logarithmic spiral, is going to be named “Draak”, which is the Dutch word for dragon. The title bears no relation to the game beyond the fact that I am going to use as its logo art based on the following novel tesselation of the plane that I discovered while fooling around with the tesselation tool that I implemented to construct the sprites for this game, and also that I thought it would be cool to make the title art be an ambigram with rotational symmetry and I think I could figure out a way to do this with the word “draak”.
