Names for a game you have no idea what it's about?
« on: February 22, 2016, 04:42:46 PM »
Watashiwa and I have been talking about names for this game.  I'm not going to tell you what it is just yet, though. Curious on your take on some names (note that when I use ___, then that's basically [insert word(s) here]):

Outskirts ___
___ Outskirts
Final Outskirts
After Hope
Interloper
Mobile Armor

Joke names:
Tripod Nights
No Habitat For Humanity
New Hotness
Shifting Citadels
The Best Offense



There's no real way you guys can help much with this, but I suppose that as we come up with particularly interesting candidates we might throw them out there so that you can give us your blind impressions of them.  Also it's partly just me taunting you.

Not bad!  But a game company unfortunately.

I know -- also one called Outskirts.  I'm not really fond of Interloper as a name, anyway.

Here are my name suggestions, I know they suck, they dont make any sense, but this is what you asked for.

Holy Mother of Dinosaurs
Geneshifter
Envoy
Hybridology
Shader 3.0

I tried to use all the spillage, and if these names sound too bad, it is not completely my fault :)

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

From what I read, it seems to me that this will be also an overcomplex arcen game, so I have also this:

Occam's Swiss Army Knife

Mechanized Artificial Dinosaurs (MAD)

I also like this one btw.
