Help Me to Think of a Name...

29 replies
Hello,

I'm planning to create an open sandbox game , which will be set in a Zombie apocalypse.

I just can't think of any names. I need it to be unique. I'm going to provide some examples of names, so you get an Idea.

Also , it will be set in a city. So , no names relating to something else.


-Walking Dead
-Dead Island
-Left 4 Dead

If you win , I'll give you a 2 month advertising slot on my Site ; that get's around 1k hit's Monthly. Link will be do-follow It's A PR2.

Thanks , Looking forward to some good suggestions.

    I don't think naming it is the problem. If you're stuck on a name at this point, I guarantee this won't go anywhere (assuming you don't have any investment).

    I don't think you understand how many gamers want to create their own game. It's no where near as easy as you think, and if you think naming the game is important enough to have a thread on it, you're in for some serious surprises.

    Prove me wrong. How many graphic artists (2D and 3D) do you have? I assume you have more than 10 programmers on retainer, or at least connected via collaboration software? What 3D engine are you using? Is it multiplayer, and if so, what networking software are you using, or are you doing it from scratch (LOL!).


    edit: I was just looking at previous threads you started and it's almost comical. You range from 'starting iPhone development companies' to 'starting PPC/survey sites', now to 'starting a computer game'... geez, slow down kid! Pick one, make a plan, get investors/investment and STICK TO IT.

      I Know this would come up We use CE3. It's just me and two other people programming so net code. We haven't started on the Single player coding yet.

      I know you have concerns here but , We have over 20 people working on this project. All of us use Skype
      Yes , of course we are. What else did you think we were going to do.

      I don't think you understand the true nature of Game's.

      You don't have networking software , Multiplayer uses P2P. With inter connected packets sent to a host. All of the game stats are saved in a packet , on the host side. Then when the match/game has finished ; it's sent to a sever on our end.

      Dedicated severs , cost allot





      To assure you , I'll show some of the work produced.
