Well I'm in a team making a Zombie game, and we have to change the name due to copyright issues, and I'm looking for advice from you guys :)

Obviously you have no knowledge of what makes a good name. Good game names should be 1 word because easy to remember, easy to market, and should have an abstract meaning towards the game. Last name was Outbreak Solanum.

What relevance does that have to a Zombie game? :|

nope your game names just suck. and obviously game names like: The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Brothers, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Elder Scrolls, Medal of Honor, Grand Theft Auto, etc. have not hurt those franchises

Epidemic, but it's already a crappy game on the PS. My friend has it, I think there's a number after it though, like "Epidemic 7".

No one, but I don't want to name a game something that has nothing what so ever to do with the game lol
#13 Posted by EvanSkanes (10942 posts) -
Nope, there was no "7" on it, it's just "Epidemic"
Edit: Man I hated that game.

Not a bad name, I was also thinking Necrosis might not be bad either.

Looks as if Pandemic may be the game name since so many people like it.

Epidemic sounds the best. But something more original is even better.

Well, they all seem to remind me of other games. I don't know. You choose what you want. I don't play zombie games anyway.

Id like to use Pandemic, I'm going to see if that Flash Game has a copyright on it.

Eh. Out of all of those, I like pathogen, but even then, none of them seem to be a great name. They are okay, but not the greatest.

Most well known games have names of more than one word. :/

Outbreak Solanum is a game based in the present, a virus (Solanum) which was contained for research was able to infect a scientist, things got worse and worse as the virus spread out into the public. Soon a wave of zombies starts to way in the Arachiville Town. Citizens panic as the zombies approach grabbing person after person feeding in the streets and dark ally ways. Soon it becomes a full blown outbreak as military personal and police try to combat the zombies while survivors of the outbreak try to make it to evacuation points and strongholds within the town. Note that the virus name Solanum will be changed to something else, because of copyright issues, and thats just a brief description of the story.
