The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development.

The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more.

A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games.

naming my game

15 posts in this topic

To me Don't fade into obscurity!Gloomy obscurity rush and Flee to light don't really sound like the title of a game but more a like a description of what you do in the game. Of the names you suggested, I would favor Torch's Journey, but you could also try to involve the name of the main character.

Of the names you mentioned, I'd go with Torch's Journey as well.

 

For the main character, Murk seems better to me than Murky.

I like "Gloomy obscurity rush", but it's too long and hard to pronounce. How about "Gloom Rush"?

To me it looks like it needs one of those one-word titles. It's a shame "Myst" is taken.... maybe "Mirk" or an old English derivative like "Myrke"? The Gloom? Dim?

 

Or that could be the main character, although to me it would make sense for his name to be some synonym for light, like something based off of luminous, like Lumino or Lume. Or flourescent, phosophorescent, lantern ("Lant"), etc. Torch is good, too. Having a "Y" at the end makes names sound more childish.

How about Swamp Light, or Shadow Light.  Using the term "light" to represent the main character's feature, and setting a tone that the game is set in dark/murk/swamp type areas.

 

I like Mr. Dim as the hero name, Mr. K Dim (pronounced Murky Dim) :)

 

Hope this help!

To be honest, this is a discussion you should be having with the group who created the game. WHile it is always enticing to seek outside helps for creative dilemmas, no-one knows the game better then the creator's. Just collaborate between yourselves and start cutting down the list of titles and names until you reach the one you want. While we can guess the setting, dark and grim, there are millions of games that are dark and grim.

 

Think, what makes your game unique, and start working from there.
