Help me pick a game title

Post by Noctem » Nov 10th, 2010, 18:26

Hello again.
Trying to name my Blood-based roguelike.

For several reasons I don't want to call it Blood-RL.
It's restrictive (I might not want it to be only a genre-conversion of Blood). And there's also the threat of a C&D-letter.

Some suggestions occured to me:
-Cult (sounds pure and elegant, but probably taken by several others)
-The Cult
-Tchernobog (sounds cool, but might be hard to remember/spell/pronounce)
-Cult of Tchernobog (acronym CoT sounds good)

I think the ideal title would be something that is dark and sinister, but also decent.
The title should either be short and striking, or long with a good acronym.

So if you have any ideas, please let me know.
Infra Arcana - a roguelike computer game inspired by Blood, the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, and B-horror movies.

Bloody Hand - BH

Ooo wait i've got it, use the Blood Cabal Language for a title!

Domus Durbentia (Dark Wisdom)

Red Right Hand

It's also the name of a really cool Nick Cave song, well suited to Blood.
"All right, I'm going to ask you a series of questions. Just relax and answer them as simply as you can."
