hey guys! I've just created a devlog and also posted a playable version of my game in the Playtesting section. I'd like your help to name my game.
Playtest: https://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=56128.0
Devlog: https://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=56125.msg1250747#msg1250747
For who doesn't want to acess the link, I'm applying a image and the story.



STORY:
The story is about a boy that loses his beloved in a tragic accident.
Lost in his own grieve he receives an offer he can’t deny, a way to bring her back.
But to do so he must find the fragments of her soul that spread around the world.

Please help me name my game  Beg

One trick a journalist taught me:
Write down all the words - verbs, nouns, adjectives, whatever - that you could possibly envision going in the title on single index cards with tape on the back. Then start rearranging them haphazardly until something sounds right. Preferably with someone else in the room to bounce your thoughts off of:



It worked out pretty well when I did it. Seeing the different configurations helps them gel a lot more.

Also ignore that abomination of a painting in the top left. Wink

There's always the Monkey-Typewriter approach.

Maybe an Old Norse or Latin word (relevant to your story), possibly coupled with a English suffix, or vice versa? There are plenty of online dictionaries.

If you really want to get hardcore, have them be color coded.
