Hello fellow Tigsourcers! I have been working on a game, which you can find here
, which I am developing in my spare time.
It is a village simulator, akin to The Settlers, especially the first one. The game features a simulation of villagers, buildings, animals and resources. The game also features terrain modifications, somewhat complex AI and catastrophes.
The goal of the game is managing the growth of the village, researching new buildings and assigning jobs, making sure everyone is happy and healthy.
The game will however feature many of the problems of the dark ages, such as famine, corruption and pandemics, in addition to natural disasters. Basically, the game will not be an idilliac "happy village simulation"!
I am however not happy with the name: Pipo, which is the noun for referring to the villagers. It is pronounced "pee-pou" and, altought it looks like it comes from "people", it actually comes from the (somewhat) italian word "pippotto", which should mean "small dude" in some parts of Italy (for example, here!).
Do you have any ideas for the name of the game? I'd like to stick with something in regard to the villagers, so some variation on "Townfolk", "Villager", "Paesant" would be welcome, altouth none of these still convince me!!!!
