Although, I'm not Benzido. Where's he gotten to?
I'm here! Sorry for abandoning my thread for so long.
Ok, in reverse order,
Key to Adventure
I always try to imagine the game in my head before I read the description. In this case, I am imagining an adventure which focuses around fetching keys and opening doors. But it sounds like the hook of your game is cooperation, not keys - thank goodness! You need a title which evokes fun, mind-bending cooperation. What's the word of the moment? Coopetition.
(note: 'Hammerfist' was a game where you used two characters with different abilities in tandem to put keys into doors. But they named it after only one of the characters, which I thought was sexist)
This is a classic case where the name establishes the parameters of the game. If you go with this name, your game is guaranteed to be worse than Portal, and not to add anything to the concept. Choose a name which inspires you to come up with new hooks. Like, for example, Spooky Action At A Distance.
Gods Of Earth (GOE for short)
I agree with the others, this is very blah, and the short version makes it even more blah. Knowing nothing about the concept, though, it is hard to come up with a constructive suggestion. If you do stick with this name, DON'T shorten it to 'GOE', that means nothing.
Yeah this is a great name to use. My suggestion goes more toward your game concept than the name - if you're going to call it 'Humdrum' and use that art style, you had better add totally non-humdrum aspects to the game design. Either an epic, catastrophic plot, or some completely surreal design elements, or something else that is extremely surprising. The last thing you want is for people to play it and think 'wait, this game is
I love the game idea, and I agree that this naming concept is a good one, but I don't think you've nailed it, exactly. John Awesome doesn't sound awesome enough, and it's maybe a little too
literal. You need a name with more aural hardness to it, like 'Max Factor' or 'Wolf Blitzer'. Something like CAPTAIN CUBICLE.
Only if it's muslims doing the massacring. That would be a nifty surprise, especially if they were white anglo muslims! Otherwise, no.
Stumpy the Cripple
I like this, but I would think it was funnier to call it Vestigial Arms.
