Dear Friends,

"...........we need to find a title for our new and rather intriguing project. So we have already invented a number of various names, but it is rather difficult to choose the one most suitable for it.
Please find below the brief story of the game and the list of titles we managed to think out. You may choose one of ours or suggest yours - we will appreciate all your ideas!
Thank you very much for your attention.

Story:

Calm and quiet life of a provincial town was broken by a mysterious epidemic desease. Local authorities send to the town several people to stop this process: a doctor, an inquisitor and an army commander.
Along with this disaster there in the town three political groups are struggling for power.
To survive in this town a character should choose one of the three ways out: he/she should either find an effective remedy, kill everyone infected or help one of the political fractions to come to power. And no other escape.
Conceivably this strange desease was a kind of punishment from above for the desobedience to the Gods. The main building in the game is a Polyhedron, made by a number of enthusiasts and which had a mysterious power and abilities.
The figure 2 has a sacred sense in the game: three fractions, three centers in the town, three ways to survive and etc.

Generally the idea of the game has a strong phylosophical background and the development team strives to make an absolutely absorbing gameplay.

Well, the list of our variants:

Panacea
Pestilence
Desperate Hope
Soilsore
Dream Defeated
Deliverance
City of the Damned
Crisis
Forbidden Miracle
Decay


....looking forward to receive your reply as soon as possible!
Cheers! "


-----------------------------------------------

I'm sure you dedicated Boomers can help out with no problem at all! I'm not sure what genre this game is yet, but I'm not sure it matters that much when directing attention toward selecting a title! laugh

Have at it, gang! bravo

I like the title Deliverance.

It is a strong word. I always think one word titles are the easiest to recall for buyers and also to market. ALso it doesn't imply what choice is better in the game - but has a positive aura to it. You are victorious if you can deliver. It also would work well whether the game is a RPG, Strategy, Action, Adventure or hybrid game.

Not too shabby, inferno!

I don't think there's any rule against suggesting a new titlefrom what I'm reading above....even if they'd primarily like for us to select from the list.

Love, Witchen =O) smile I like "Triad"

Hi.

Choosing from the list, I too would go for "Deliverance" as the most evocative <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

Cheers.

I think going by the list i would have to vote for "Fobidden Miracle" although reading the brief story it's hard to get a good idea of exactly what the game is about. I can however tell you why i dont like the other titles...

1. Panacea...first i cant pronounce it and if you name a game like this there are always debates on how you pronounce it, second it sounds like something you would put on Tacos.

2. Pestilence...This sounds like something that my wife would say i either have or dont depending on if it is good or bad.

3. Desperate Hope...This sounds like an ER episode.

4. Soilsore...yeah like someone else said this just makes me think of oozing open wounds.

5. Dream Defeated...this one just sounds goofy

6. Deliverance...This one just makes me think of canoes. Toothless guys, and Banjos.

7. City of the Damned...This makes me think of that movie with the Superman guy and the wierd kids.

8. Crisis....This is just to general and the word is to vauge. what kind of Crisis is it, to my Wife this could mean that it was a game about me not picking my towel up off the bathroom floor.

9. Decay...Yeah that would sell a lot of copies. A game about rotting things.

Of course these are just my opinions, feel free to laugh at me, send me hate mail, of hire me as the next "Game title maker guy"

Thanks for the input, gang, and let's keep it going. How about a subtitle?......, like
Trinity: Zero Hour in a Small Town
Trinity: Outbreak in a Small Town

Love, Witchen smile

Do we know the name of the town? or do you want it to remaine annonymous?

Trinity: Plague in small Town X

Or if it the town has a cool name.

Trinity: plague in Moonlight Cove, or whatever the cool name of the town is.

Sounds like an interesting concept for a game!

My dictionary defines Plague as A widespread affliction or calamity, especially one seen as divine retribution. This sounds like what you're game is about, so how about just "Plague" or "Plague of the Dammed"

""""Conceivably this strange desease was a kind of punishment from above for the desobedience to the Gods"""

I would pick "City of the Damned" from this description even though it does conjure up thoughts of blank-eyed children taking over a town (the younger crowd probably won't remember the moview anyway). I also like "Deliverance" but I would add a subtitle to it, like: Deliverance: Triad and Epidemic (or whatever).

Good, good, good input! smile

Retribution is a telling word too, Louis!

Retribution: Curse of the Gods?

This is kinda fun, huh? LOL:)

Love, Witchen
