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"

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).

Well I couldn't think for a minute - Still laughing at Quisitor's post lol

OK - I have to admit, banjo playing, slack jawed mutants did cross my mind with the deliverance title. laugh

I like Redemption, here's another that that title brought to mind. Judgement Day.

This certainly is a fun thread. Though maybe someone should have warned Buka Ent. what they might get when they asked for input from this group. laugh

It's too bad that it's such an unmarketable word, because "Trilemma" means "choice between 3 unwelcome things".

I've worked the three angle over repeatedly in my head, and now I'm stuck with Triumph over Trials and Tribulations. Yes, tri as I might, the dumbness in my brain is starting to win out. rolleyes

OK, for real, how about "Countdown from Quarantine"?

As for the proposed names, what's with "Deliverance"?! eek eek If killing everyone is Buka's idea of deliverance, remind me not to invite them to visit me in the hospital.

Personally, I LIKE "Soilsore". YES, it sounds like diaper rash, but they could change the description to "an epiDERMic disease" and really run with this puppy. thumbsup

.... Am I demonstrating why no developers have yet employed me? whistle

Survival is an excellent idea too. There's already one out though. Its an older combat/strategy game by Activision for Win95/98.

Survival would work with a subtitle though, doncha' think? laugh

The very first word that came up into my mind, even before I read your titles was: Pestilation. I read the boek la Peste from Albert Camus and it learned me how people can change when they are in fear for such an illness.Simply people became heroes and intelligent and respected men became cowards.Not speaking about them who were doing what had to be done, without asking themselves what could be their own risks. It was such a captivating story, that showed the deepest feeling of men. Feelings that you never would have known, if not in that special situation.

PESTILENCE = 1. a deadly epidemic disease. 2. That which produces or tends to produce epidemic disease. 3. the bubonic plague
So, how about Pestilence from the Gods or something like that?
City of the Damned would be my 2nd choice.
I like Witchen's first 2 suggestions too.

What's wrong with combining some of the suggested titles? I kinda like "Soilsore: City of the Damned" or maybe "Pestilence: Decay of Desperate Hope"? laugh In all seriousness (if that's possible at this point) I think they should go with something short and easy to remember. I like "Retribution" (good one, Witchen!) or maybe "Pandemic".

How about "The Bukan Triangle"?

Or one of my favourite film titles "The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies"?

Or something like "Tromaville 2003"?

Witchen, can you ask them for another list?

It's beginning to appear that a list of titles they have already considered and rejected would be more useful.

LOL lol lol lol

I'm not sure that Buka will understand all this cryptic humor, guys, but I am sure they will much appreciate the marvelous creative input and wonderful title ideas.

As for a list of "titles they've already considered," I'm sure a certain number of repeats is to be expected and Buka can readily recognize any new and brilliant ones from the list Gameboomers' provides and compare them with their own files. However, they are reading this thread, so perhaps they'll consider sharing a list a good idea.

Best wishes, Witchen =O)

I would be happy to smile From what i hear it is a game where you get "Air Pulse cannon Laser artilery riffles" and you chase each other around an "Arena" trying to kill each other the fastest. most of the time there are 4 million other players trying to do the same thing. They are Dubbed "FPS's" which i believe stands for (Forget) about any originality (People) will buy these games over and over and we will be (Stinking) rich. I could of course be wrong though wink my wife tells me I am all the time.

My vote is for:

For example:

TRILLIUM: The Retribution

(I like the name Trillium, whoever came up with that!)

OK, gotcha, Witchen. We'll be much more blatant with our jokes from now on. thumbsup

Most of my alternate names sound like incredibly hokey Agatha Christie titles : Death Comes in Threes, Third Hand of Fate, etc. I need Random House here, not Buka.

How about Trident Virus?

Hi there gang........More good input! smile Happy to see that. About "Trillium" though.....That's the name of a popular Swedish lily, I'm sure most gardeners will recognize the name. Trillium, both white and purple, grows wild in Washington State, btw, and in cooler climates all around the world. smile Might not envoke the appropriate image for this game, huh? lol

Love, Witchen =o) smile

Reading a little of the story it has something to do with what the Gods have done to this small town. So, A title with God. Maybe like:

CURSE OF THE GODS and since the town is infected by a disease, how about, OUTBREAK. I think there was a movie called Outbreak, about small town that was infected with a desease starting Steven Segal. OR A TOWN'S DESTINY, DESTINY OF A TOWN, OR THE FAITH OF A TOWN.

Boomers have listed quite good ones so far it is going to get hard to choose from. Oh wait I thought of another one ABUSIVE POWER... OR EPICDEMIC.

Just to cloud the picture a little more, there's already a recent action game called Codename: Outbreak, so I'm not sure how eager Buka should be to include that in a title.

Also, I just had to mention that the trillium is Ontario's provincial flower. laugh ... Yes, there's no end to the perfectly useless trivia you can pick up here at GameBoomers. wink

So how about "Pushing Up Trilliums"? (Whoops, you've all just witnessed my last ounce of good taste completely obliterated...)

Quistor -- now that I think about it, I own a game called Spearhead. It seems to be an expansion pack to Medal of Honor, which my son assures me is a WWII historical strategy game. I take it from your description that the educational value is actually quite minimal?

Hmmm....try these...

EPIDEMIC: The Deliverance of (town name)
or Damnation of (town name)

Or use Plague instead of Epidemic....Plague seems more Biblical, Epidemic is sort of modern.

Game sounds really interesting, can't wait!!

Outbreak was Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo and the monkey that was also on Friends (Yipes!). There is no copyright on names so anyone can use them.

How about Contagion or Scourge?

Hmmm.... scourge: "a cause of widespread or great affliction." This could cover both the gods and the politicians! wink

Hi Gang...............And thanks everyone for all the terrific input! What a stellar collection of imaginations hang out at Gameboomers! Truly impressive. By the way, Buka Entertainment says there's some really "good ideas" in there. thumbsup

How 'bout "The Plague - There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 3 ways out of the City of the Damned" smile

If they make a sequel, it can be called "Beyond the plague of (town name, but please not "Atlantis") II, a return to the City of the Damned"

Okay...from the titles given, I will put my vote in for City of the Damned. Will see if something else pops in my head but I did spend a whole day shopping so it is pretty empty right now.
Sounds like a cool game tho. Reminds me kinda of the movie Outbreak.
Thanks

I like Scourge. It makes me think of the flagellants in the Middle Ages who thought they could end the Plague by scourging themselves.

Who is the typical buyer of this game? There are people who are attracted to stark frightening names with a hint of violence. On the other hand, there are (timid, snobbish, squeamish?) people who would be put off by such a name. I would probably not buy a game called "Pestilence" for instance because it sounds uncomfortable, if not downright horrific. Maybe a more middle-of-the-road title (say, "Retribution") -- less putrid-sounding, evoking an emotion everyone understands.

On the other hand, I think some talented Boomer should definitely develop a game named "Beyond the Plague of Atlantis II: Return to the City of the Damned" strictly for whimsical reasons.
