A comment on your "hitler" recommendation for the Unidentified 1942. One might run into trouble in german speaking countries, especially if used with nazis. It has a bad connotation there. There was a movie with nazis from the moon called "Iron Sky". Maybe a variation of that could be interesting.

Yeah I recently saw Jojo Rabbit and even though it's not in the name, there is a lot of hitlering there. xD

My name is "Dust: Battle Beneath", a platformer-shooter-roguelite where you play as a gopher in the underground. Is that good?

Sounds a bit sinister - but certainly apt for your game.

Hello, everyone.

If this thread still active, I would like to submit the name of the game I'm working on. It's called Against The Mountain and it's a first person adventure/platformer game.

Here are a couple of screenshots from the game:

Seems like. good name. The screenshots look nice and "Against the Mountain" gives of an adventurous vibe. Oh, and no, this thread is pretty much dead. Cry

Against the Mountain sounds good to me. Naming things is hard.

My game's name is Guinea Simulator. It is about guinea pigs, and you try to make them have good lives. It has a basic moving mechanic, but there will be other mechanics too.

My game's name is simply Hop!2D.

It's a 2D platformer as its name suggests it, and the main character keeps jumping (only left and right keys to control it). I choose to keep "2D" in the name as I did want to stick to 2D old-style pixellated look (I'm a big arcade nostalgic) and it was also an ironic allusion to the "3D" lots of vintage video games stuck to their names when this technology took off. "Hop!" is here to remind the player that the main character is continuously bouncing.

Hyperflex - As someone already said, sounds pretty catchy. :)) Although I would expect "flexing" instead of "reflexes", obviously, the possible confusion might be worth it though.

Hop!2D - I guess a suiting name for a jumping platformer (wouldn't expect anything else), and the 2D part makes it stand out a bit, so I'd say good. :)

Guinea Simulator - I mean, sure, could be that, should work, but if it's fun, shouldn't the name be a bit more fun too? Like "Guinea Hotel" or "Pig Time" (that one might be misleading :p) :P

Death Fever - Everything with "Death" in its title is super-cool, I do think that, even though it's pretty worn-out by other games. Not sure what I would expect from a "Death Fever" game though - could be a shooter just as much as a deadly disease simulator. :p

No Escape - If it's just about keeping a ball inside something, then the name definitely feels way too sinister for my taste. :p I'd choose something more "neutral", like Out of Bounds or Something Catch :p

Dust: Battle Beneath - For a casual arcade shooter, this feels a bit too "epic". Maybe something simple like "Dustfight" or whatever would be better? Dust by itself is used a lot too by the way... and now that I think of it, isn't "dust" actually misleading? Shouldn't it be... sand? :))

Wow, @DarkGran, you're back. Some really good feedback for everyone. My personal favourite name's Death Fever My Word! (though author didn't say what it was about)

Yeah, I was even hesitant on Dust because the problem is that it's already used many times (as you said) and as a name itself sooo....I agree it does sound a bit to epic. I added a whole campaign mode (roguelite is what it is now) so maybe it can sound a little less too epic compared to the game (which has changed since the last time you played it). It's kind of too late to change the name now Tongue

But I think this will be nice: Dirtfight RPG 3D Game Simulator!! No? Then I might just stick to DBB Wink

I get it's a bit too late, this is actually true for most of the game names here. It's authors fault for posting them here though! :p It doesn't really matter really, as most of these names are actually fine (in other words, you could probably find something wrong with every name .)).
As for the Dust itself, it's still a good name, my biggest "critique" of it was that it was kinda used already, but that's actually not very important (may help even).

Dirtfight RPG 3D Game Simulator - Love the Dirtfight part! Also just "Dirt". xD
As expected, I would drop the rest... or maybe... you know what, I'm gonna steal the "Game Simulator" for something. Not yet sure what it's gonna be, but it already sounds intriguing. xD .)

Tongue True. I put the name out when I was still in naming stage though (kind of). Wow, now that I think of it I DO like Dirtfight. Removes the overused Dust (dustforce, dust, dust Elysian tale, etc. etc) and more unique Smiley But too bad so sad for me Tongue

Well, as it's still in Alpha, I think it could "survive" any name changes. ;) (if you really want to rename it) And better do it now before the fanbase starts to grow! :p

Hmmm...maybe. Though too many people have seen DustBB and the name has had time to grow on me, but still...maybe (also might leave this project for a while so I'll probably leave the name the same just for lols Big Laff ). Hmmm...

I don't even want to know XD. Also it's a name of another small game and band(?). But these things are relatively unknown and don't stop/deter me from using the name. So once again: Hmmm...

Lol yea I guess you don't want people to think that your game is about hobos making amateur porn... unless it actually is xD


Anyway, I have a name of my own to throw in for the others to think about:



SAVE ME CIRCLES

As you can see from the screenshot, it's about CIRCLES. xD Gameplay description: there are circles floating in space, and you can touch them to make them smaller and faster, or bigger and slower... You can also place a static circle of your own. Circles of same color merge, and the goal is to have no more than one circle from each color. There are more complex rules concerning interactions between different colors, but the details of that are not that important.

So I'm not sure who is actually saving whom (or for who). Especially as the name looks like there should be a comma. But there's none for some reason.

The name is a bit strange because 1. the original project looked very different, as it was only an exercise (for example, you could not place your own static circle) 2. originally I did not have a slightest idea what the circles actually are, meaning there was no world, no lore, nothing to build upon (now there's something but it's still all in the mist).

So. Is the name totally stupid, as I claim? And if so - do you have a better one? ;D
