I'm working on 'RedplusBlue' which is what I call a '1-player co-op puzzle-platformer'.
The goal of the game is to get the 2 playable characters together; when they touch, they conjoin.

The name doesn't look very appealing. It sounds cool though. I'd play around with some extra spaces there. Or replace "plus" with an actual plus sign.

I'm quite happy with the name of our game QuickDraw however I would love some thoughts on the game mode names.

Currently I have:

Gentleman's Walk - all players stand back to back, take paces to the church bell and turn/fire
Mexican Standoff - all players are in a circle facing each other. Upon the draw sound, everyone fires.
Outlaw's vs Sheriffs - players are in teams but played like above. The average score from each team determines the winner.

TRIGGER HAPPY HUSTLE

Don't wanna give too much away, but it's basically a classic NES-style platformer shooter with some... surprises. Tons of guns, enemies, bosses, levels, characters, items, upgrades, etc. This is an actual screenshot, so ignore the black box with a 5 in it. It's for iPhone.

Vortex is the working title.  Here's the game in one long sentence:
You're part of an independent, intergalactic, space mining ship crew that travels from galaxy to hostile galaxy collecting powerful elements that you cash in by transporting thru matching vortexes to a greedy space corporation.

Other names that we have thrown around:
VortX, Vortrox, Vortrax, Vortrix, Vorticity, Vortronic, Vortronauts, Marauders, Galactic Marauders, Space Marauders, Galactic Raiders, Galaxy Raiders, Space Raiders, Space Miners, Galactic Miners, Galaxy Miners, Orbtex, Orbex, Orbalatic, Orbtrix, Orbtrox

@TPathuis: Do what Eigen suggested. Red+Blue is a much more appealing title. The game looks sharp! Great use of colors.

I am creating an indie puzzle game called Block Buster, what do you think about this name?
The game looks like this:


The only thing i am worried about is that maybe i could get into some trademark conflicts with BLOCKBUSTER company. It's not exactly the same name but...

Judging from the video tt's guitar hero for people who live in an astroid belt and like their space things nice and tidy. I would have suggested something Kuiper but someone's been faster at claiming the name: http://www.newarcade.net/game/4571/Kuiper.html

But maybe Kuiper Belt Hero does work for you.

sounds like those "brain training" placebo games that are causing an increase in smug emissions around metropolitan cities

seriously, google Luminosity

it might be a good idea to name it that though, because it's a familiar word thanks to -aforementioned- brain training games

I'm working on a roguelike platformer - procedural levels, permadeath and all that fun stuff! Anyway, it had been in development for months without a name, until I finally came up with:

The Dungeoning

What do you reckon?  Embarrassed

Here is a youtube video with a few minutes of gameplay, it's still very much in development (for PC and Mac)
