Game name is the same as a company name

I've been developing a game called Epic Hamster for a while now and just found out today that there's a company called Epic Hamster also: http://www.epichamster.com/apps/IdentiKid/ what should I do? I already bought epic-hamster.com before I knew that they existed. Am I pretty much screwed and need to figure out a new name?

[b]It depends.[/b] What kind of company is this other Epic Hamster? (Do they compost dead hamsters? Do they manufacture space satellites? Do they make games, pet supplies, toiletries...?)

(Note: don't kick me for not following the link -- you should have included this info in your post, since it is essential to getting the answer you are seeking)

[quote]Actually, just asking out of curiosity but there may be a game company with same name but what if no trademark is involved?[/quote]

 

How would that change anything?  Wouldn't that company still be upset by the possible confusion that would result?  You'd still get sued.
