Ever wanted to brutally murder someone on The Sims?

Hi, we are a new studio (Slice 'n Dice) and we are currently making a game called ________. You get to create a character and lead their life. Normal right?
Nope, think The Sims mixed with GTA. Now think The Sims mixed with GTA on your iPod.

Lead the life of a mass muderer. Deal drugs to the Mafia. Lead the Mafia. Go from rags to riches. Get to the top of the food chain.

But we at Slice 'n Dice need BIG help from you, and we mean BIG. We dont have a name.......... yup no name. So we need you guys to come up with a name and the best one will be chosen.

Sounds interesting. Will you be able to build your house?

A one word title with a menacing vibe might be interesting... Malice, Mayhem, Screwballs...

Also, consider keeping the game balanced where you can fight for good too. Fighting for good is under rated.

I'm not sure I get how this is at all like The Sims. It just sounds like GTA with a career development mode. Do you get to chose carpet designs or what kind of pet to get?

The concept is cool. However, where are you in the stages of the game? Pre-Alpha, alpha, beta? We can't just blindly name a game without any type of media. If you happen to have any of that, that would be much appreciated.

You are not pretty enough to be that stupid.

I'd go for something quite the opposite, actually. Something that sounds nonthreatening would be hilarious for this kind of game
