Imagine a game about living in a world with cursed people who return as ghouls. The cause is an abyss which opened somewhere in this world.

passing the buck

In theory, the practice of shifting blame was harmless, at first.

Alternative titles:

Who left the [stove] on?
Who left the dog [at home]?

I've told you a million times to [clean your face].
My [son] is a 30 year old [stereotype].

The day [Baker] got voted most likely to succeed.

[They] finally did it.

Have you ever jumped a rope [exactly 33 times]?

Dead World: The Abyss was the winner for me. Straight to the point name  Hand Thumbs Up Right I probably would have liked it even more if it was just Dead World. Would have made me even more curious about what it was.

I like Dead World too the best as well! "The abyss" feels kind of meh to me in all the options, so I think I'd either drop that or try for something else that fits it better...depending on which idea you're more tied to. Smiley

Unlucky. I found out that "Dead World" is the name of another RPG.  Cry

Do you have some suggestions for me?

What do you think about "After the Outbreak"?
If I change the story that the people return as ghouls because of an infection... Then it would fit the name...

Yeah I think that's good.  Smiley Here's an alternative to that as well, that rhymes, although it's quite long.. In the Wake of the Outbreak.

This also sounds cool! Thanks, I will add it to my list. Smiley

After I collected a few names, I will create a new poll.

I don't know about anyone else, but I like that!

I may also be worth looking up the names of the ending of the world from various ancient cultures and mythologies to see if they spark anything...Ragnarok is pretty mainstream right now, but I'm sure there are other interesting names in that same vein...

Either way, I think you're on the right track, and I'll be keeping an eye out for the new poll! Wink

I like the premise!

I'll recommend anything without the words "dark" in it. I have an internal filter for things I find cliche, and any new game with dark in the title automatically goes under my radar.

Thats a good idea! I will look out for similar names. Smiley
