We need an official name for the game once we start actually promoting it and I start telling a few of my friends about the game.  

 

Right now, it does not have a name.  It's "Aftermath" but really it's not because of how much stuff has changed.  

 

The game is an open world sandbox shooter with loot collection, character progression and roleplay elements.  It's a survival game to some degree, but it's not ultra hardcore.  It's not looking to be a realism simulator.  It's looking to be an enjoyable farming + PVP experience + social experience with a bit of crafting and resource collection for those interested.  Lots of shiny things to collect etc.  

 

Let's try and get a collective think tank going... I am pretty set on it being a single world name.

I think Aftermath is too iconic a name to just get rid of, it embodies the core game. But it can't hurt to add a subtitle to it. Aftermath: [Subtitle-here]

Not following. What's preventing the game for being sued at this very moment while it holds the name? Doubly so when it's technically still Romero's Aftermath despite no personal involvement from George C. Romero in... ever that I can think of other than the initial announcement over 2 years ago now. 

 

The market is stupidly convoluted in Open world survival shooters, but I digress.

 

I'll try and some up with something.

Right now it's not on Steam and is an 'unofficial' version of the game.

Actually the name "AfterWarz" is not that bad, since it's really after WarZ and similar to it, the original game was created by the creators of WarZ, and i'm pretty sure the "WarZ" tag would attract some people

and get copyrighted by using "WarZ" i suggest you to do your homework and look why "WarZ" was renamed to "Infestation"

I've given it a good deal of thought and I'm having a hard time coming up with 1 word names for the game that both communicate something important about the game and are not taken. It just depends how important the name is at this point I suppose...

 

For example I thought of "Roam" or "Wander"..those names lend themselves more to a survival sandbox, not a game with the kind of fast-paced PVP that Aftermath has.

 

Then you have names associated with disaster like Cataclysm, Calamity etc, but most of those are taken...

 

If there was more story to the game or lore or maybe something atmospheric or gameplay wise that made it truly unique we could play off of that in the name but at this time there isn't much material.

 

For me the name should reflect possibly the biggest threat in the game or something iconic about the game. Right now the biggest threat in the game is encountering players you don't know - strangers. Maybe this could influence the name of the game?
