Hi Jorrit. This is a very good news for me. :-)
What about GameSpace or even GameCrystal ;-)
It is a name that remembers Crystal Space in conjunction with Blender to 
deprecate GameBlender. :P

>will read a .blend file and create a 3D world at runtime.
>* The second step is that Erwin Coumans (developer on Blender and
>GameBlender) will help me add the existing GameBlender? game logic to
>this program. When this is ready we will be able to play existing
>GameBlender? games (if all goes well).
>* The third step is that we create an alternative game logic system
>based on CEL. This will not be compatible with the old GameBlender?
>game logic so probably we will keep both options in the program. At
>least initially.
>* The fourth step is to look at how to integrate this with Blender itself.
>* Finally we can see how Blender itself can be extended to allow more
>actuators/sensors/controllers which are possible in CEL.
>I think this would be a great opportunity to show how two big Open
>Source projects can work together for a nice game creation kit.
