Name of the Game

From Rebuild 3 Ideas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Sarahnorthway (talk) There are some problems with calling the game "Rebuild 3" (or "Rebuild PC"):

  1. Mobile users might not know there's a "Rebuild 2" (even though they're playing it)
  2. Downloadable users may have never heard of the game at all
  3. "Rebuild 3" sounds boring

(For the ABBA fans [1])

Sarah's Decision

The downloadable version will be called:

  • Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville

I'm dropping the "3" because it's the first in the series to be win/mac downloadable. The word Deadsville hints that it deals with cities and the undead, and "Gangs" refers to the factions which will be a big part of the new game and what sets it apart from the first two. I'll call the flash version (eg on Kongregate) "Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville" but inside the game and on the logo there will be no "3".

Mobile short name

I wanted to call the mobile version "Rebuild: Deadsville" but it'd be truncated on iOS to "Rebuild...sville". So I guess it has to be "Rebuild: Gangs" or "Rebuild Gangs". "Rebuild 3 Gangs" is too long and the "3" would only confuse folks.

Sarah's Old Ideas

Sarahnorthway (talk) It turns out there's a lot of zombie games out there and they've taken all the good descriptive names involving cities. But there's still this one, which mentions both zombies and cities and has an element of humor. I can imagine the splashscreen pretty easily: a town population sign used to say "Knoxville" or something but someone scratched the "Knox" out and painted "DEAD" over it in red paint. Maybe beneath it a population sign has been crossed out several times with lower numbers beneath until it says either 0 (or even "you"). Tell me if you've seen this before; it's so clear I may have seen it in a movie at some point.

Not that there'd be a real city called Deadsville in the game, but if they're autogenerated why not.

I've been jokingly calling the game "Rebuild: The Next Generation" because I'd like to set it 20 years after the zombiepocalypse, but I'm guessing I'd have trademark trouble with that. Someone suggested "Rebuild: Generation Dead" but that's kind of cheesy. Other ideas...

  • Rebuild: Rebuilder (project codename: "Rebuilder")
  • Rebuild: The Lost Generation
  • Rebuild: Children of the Zompocalypse
  • Rebuild: The Next Chapter

Okay, I not to do this whole "20 years later" thing, so the next priority I guess is to reference Zombies or city building. So I like Molo's "City of the Dead" and SeymourG's "Dead Frontier", Ardie's "Dead Story", META's "The New World"

  • Rebuild: Undead nation
  • Rebuild: The urban zombies
  • Rebuild: The return of civilization
  • Rebuild: After the plague
  • Rebuild: Surviving the end times
  • Rebuild: Go west
  • Rebuild: Out of the ashes
  • Rebuild: Better dead than zed
  • Rebuild: Welcome to Deadsville
  • Rebuild: City of the Zed
  • Rebuild: Urban Zed

Wow, most of my favorites referencing cities are already taken by other games. Bummer. Can't use:

  • City of the dead
  • Dead city
  • Dead frontier
  • Silent city
  • Urban dead
  • Urban zombies
  • Rise of mankind
  • Zed city

Sarahnorthway (talk) It seems the most major difference between Rebuild 3 and the earlier games will be the addition of rival faction forts, so it might actually be a good idea to highlight this in the name and promo art. Maybe work out how the faction leaders will look early on and show them off, eg make a wallpaper for each one. While I still prefer "Deadsville" because it implies both zombies and cities to those unfamiliar with the Rebuild series, here are more possible names based on the addition of factions:

  • Rebuild: factions
  • Rebuild: clans
  • Rebuild: gangs of Deadsville (shortened to either Rebuild:Gangs or Rebuild:Deadsville, reminiscent of The Warriors)

Solved discussion: Suggestions

I think the name of the game might come easier after a complete story is nailed down. And beyond that, care will need to be taken not to make it too similar to a game that is already out there. Mojang is making a game called 'Scrolls' and they were sued because according to lawyers, it would get confused with 'The Elder Scrolls' series of games.

I would encourage you to maintain a coherent numbering system. Everyone cringes when trying to talk about Final Fantasy games and get straight whether you meant "IV" or "2". The subtitle should help make the game distinctive, not replace the subtitle.

Also calling it "The Next Chapter" would probably be more off-putting to new players because then they would feel like they needed to play the previous iterations. No one feels like they need to play Final Fantasy V to play Final Fantasy XIII because the numbers are simply to differentiate between different items in the franchise, not give the sense that it is a continuous narrative progression.
