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)

The Dungeoning

i like it. i feel something weird about it, and that's good.

also, it has a good SEO. it's certainly unique on Google from my side of the world.

it sounds like a process, as if the name came from a punishment? maybe i am thinking too much.

8/10  Cool

PAPILONICA

it's a place. a kingdom.

the game is a zelda-like/rogue-like.

OK, here goes me, ready for punishment!

So here's the game's name: Munch Face.

It's an "experimental" arcade game, inspired by Pac-Man. We call it experimental because we're constantly adding new features, some that work, some that don't, and leave it up to gamers to let us know what to keep. So our plans are to add quests, monsters, weapons, PvP, and mod tools.

The current design is sci fi based, with Munch Face warping from one era to another, and thus introducing different level themes, designs, and play mechanics.  Hand Shake Right

I love the name. I imagine an ironic trailer that takes on superhero cartoon intros (probably because your images go in the same direction Smiley) (maybe like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkxXt8lR_ug). "It's Munch Face! He eats your boredom for breakfast!"

What name should this have?


It's a mockup.

It's a mini "side-scrolling" fantasy RPG. The map scrolls automatically, you can only move up or down to choose where to go - for example, in that image the player chooses to fight the goblin or go to the castle. You are always walking.

A few of my ideas:

-Narrowland
-Wander Quest
-Trial of Pilgrimage
-Elf Road
-Crusade Way
-Knight Hood
-Sword Pass
-Wanderland
-Half-Elf Pilgrim
-Your Elfness
