Heroes Tale

Hey everyone

iSwiss bought a mac and is trying to create a game called: Heroes Tale.

I will divide it into chapters. Does anyone has a good idea how the first should be called?

It should not be standard like : The beginning.

I assume that the first chapters describes how the hero wakes up and hears that his dad has something to talk about with him. The father then will give him his quest( save the kingdom)

One more fella into the bandwagon, Noice!
Gratz on your mac purchase....

I think the quest thing in 1st chapter is tooo common, why not make stuff come in not a straight line? watch pulp fiction for an idea

I think that's the part where the developer could really show their creativity and come up with something to wow us on their own, no?

And about the name - is it a tale about a lot of Heroes or is it one character where it should be named Hero's Tale?

Ok understood - but then you need to bite the bullet and hire a writer/translator. Part of the cost of doing business. It seems like that would be worthwhile for you since it appears you have undertaken a story based game where writing, spelling, grammar, etc will be a big part of the game. Don't lower yourself to the standards of some forum members of lore who came here soliciting free work from fellow members for their own profit.

And if it is one Hero then it should be in the singular - Hero's Tale - the way you have it written is for a group of Heroes.

How about:

Hero's Tale - Destiny Unveiled

?

Sounds appropriate to me.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
