Name the Game

#1 Post by abby » Wed May 10, 2017 7:00 pm

So, I can't think of a name for my game because I'm awful at thinking of names. I've decided I'll pay someone to think of a name for me. Please keep in mind the type of game when you're posting and the features of the game. Please post your names as a response. There's no limit to the number of names you can comment, but please keep it reasonable. Please only post once and if you think of more names just edit your post.

I'll paypal the person whose name I choose $18 USD.

Please try to keep it short i.e. no more than 5 words if possible.
Don't use the title of someone else's game or something that is close to someone else's game.

I'll be closing the entries on Tuesday May 16th.

Game description:

When Serena’s brother dies under mysterious circumstances, it puts a strain on her family. Her mother turns to dark magic in an attempt to contact her departed son. The power associated with dark magic drives her mad. Serena ends up cursed by her mother who fears losing another child. Join Serena as she tries to overcome her curse, or find out what happens if she falls victim to the curse.

Serena's curse: If she falls in love with another person, she will die.

Serena's mother knows she would never disobey her especially if it would cost her life.

Game features:

There are 3 romance options in the game which may or may not lead to your death or someone else's death.

You can also choose to not romance anyone.

There are currently 7 planned endings, 3 bad, 3 good, 1 neutral.

If you need more information feel free to pm me. Thank you for your time ^___^

I think the simplest and most obvious title would be what you've already put in your post: Serena's Curse.

Otherwise, I guess focusing on the love = death angle would be good.
-The Curse of Mother's Love
-The Curse of Brother's Legacy
-Love is the end
-Loved to death
-Die for my love

I also wanted to put "(Don't) Die Alone", but it seems there's already a game called "Die Alone".

Hmm, a few ideas pop into my head:
1) The Curse of Love
2) Love Bounded
3) Love = Death
4) To Die or To Love
5) Drop Dead in Love
6) A Matter of Love and Death
7) Loved to Death

Best of luck on your game!

- Mother Knows Best
- Amortis (combination of "amore" and "mortis")
- unLOVEd
- A Truer Affection

...It's hard coming up with romance-related titles that don't sound like a Mills & Boon novel :|

- My Heart Be Still
- Fatal Affection
- Love is to DIE for

I'm not sure if these names belong to another game, but I hope they all bring you closer to finding your game name!
