Default Need help naming a game

Hey guys,

I need some help. My friends and I are struggling finding a proper name for our game. We nailed it down to the following: "Make Way!" and "Puzzle Runner" (Or "Buzzle Runner" as a spin off). Here is a WIP screenshot of the game:



The player has to move/destroy obstacles out of the Bee's way in order to enable it to escape from danger. The bee has a mind of its own, and will find the best available path to run away.

Please let me know what you think.

Ok I think I wrote enough very stupid titles, sorry for that, but you can make a fun title that will actually catch people attention. Should be short and easy to remember.

Why not just "Buzzle"? It's short, catchy, easy to remember, tied well to game's content. Adding "Runner" to it gains nothing, distracts from "Buzzle" itself and sounds very generic. I belive "Buzzle" is not only the best choice here but also a really good idea.

Best regards,
Peter.

p.s. On a side note - I think your icons (the blue glossy circles) resolution is too large, which causes the jagged edges when scaled down.

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the suggestions. I really appreciate it. That's pretty much the problem we had over the past few months. Every time we try to vote between last week's favorites we end up coming up with new names. LOL.

I like the play on the word Bee. I tried to stay away from it because I wasn't sure if I want to stick with the Bee. Also, it doesn't really explain anything about the game...

@djstout and @JCho133: about names that make fun of themselves... I suggested Buzz Run a few weeks ago and my friends replied that it should be Buzz Kill. lol

@EvilArev: "Buzzle" sounds pretty interesting. Let's see if anyone else likes it. At this point I'm pretty convinced no one likes Puzzle Runner... This may be a good contestant to Make Way! (p.s. about the blue circles... you are right. The UI is a placeholder. Final art is in works).

Haha Buzz Kill.

Maybe some more info on gameplay will help? Is it a slow paced methodical game, or a fast paced game where you need to move through those puzzles quick? Info like that should help

Personally I like buzzle as well because when you put "run" or "puzzle" or generally the genre of the game it sounds mostly unoriginal.

"Buzzle" for sure. Simple, catchy, and easy to remember. Done and done. There you go. Your new game's name is Buzzle.
