What does the 3 blocks in the "Game Development" icon represents and how is that related to "Game Development"?

enter image description here

Can we change it to something that is more related to "Games" or "Development"?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I guess anything related to games or "development" would be fine but I struggle to associate 3 floating cubes with games. If you want to go with "building blocks", at least make it look like building blocks. Perhaps like toys? \$\endgroup\$ – Jasper Citi May 25 at 15:18
  • \$\begingroup\$ I'll confess a lot of my game development projects start with coloured cubes as placeholder art. Some arguably finish that way too. Games like IDARB (It Draws a Red Box) suggest to me that this is not an uncommon development experience... ;) \$\endgroup\$ – DMGregory May 27 at 2:20
