    What's the name of our group?

    Post by Jesse on Fri Jul 22, 2011 8:35 pm

    We're in discussions about a permanent forum name and game title, but I don't think we've touched on what the name of our "group" is.

    You know, during opening credits. Developed by _____

    Any ideas on what we should call ourselves?

    "The Project Legends Team?"

    It's short and sweet. Smile

    Team Scavenger—name of a former development studio from the mid-90s (they did games like Scorcher and AMOK), and a name truly resemblant of what we truly are: scavengers, doing our best to create from mere scraps something beautiful, true to what it was destined to be.

    —It's catchy, too!

    Instead of Team ______ (because it sounds so...generic) I propose a slight variation of GenSpec's idea. Scavenger Studios or Scavenger Games would be a better fit, in my opinion.

    We're a studio now? I thought we were a team!

    Scavenger Games was that company I mentioned from way back when, so I don't think it'd work too well now.

    I wasn't implying that we're a studio, I was just saying it sounded better than Team ____. Team Scavenger sounds like it came straight out of Gurren Lagann.

    What about our team actually being called "Project Legends" ?

    I'm fine with that—people, however, might just associate that title with what we're making, and not just us. If this is a one-time gig for a game, Project Legends should work for a while.

    I believe the word Halcyon should be in our name somewhere. "Halcyon days" is the "H" in D.A.S.H. after all. And besides, it's definitition is quite pleasing:

    3. happy; joyful; carefree: halcyon days of youth.

    I think those are certainly words I'd like to associate with this group.

    Project Halcyon, perhaps. We're trying to bring contentedness to the angered fans, to bring them back to happier days—this is a winner of a title.

    Of course, though, I doubt Joe will want to update the forum banner over a simple name change. Scavenger Software should do the trick for a team name, with Project Legends being the project name.

    Project Legends is the code name of our, well, project, though. Like how the Wii-U was called Project Cafe. Not our pretend non-profit company.

    I'm going to say Scavenger Software sounds good. But I'd still like to see "Halcyon" in the company name.

    Halcyon Systems. Halcyon Productions. Or hell, maybe just Halcyon Days. Just a few suggestions.

    Anyway, it seems unanimous over Project Legends, but we've got a thread on the game name going elsewhere and this. We should pick the best and make some polls for both of these.

    Gotta make the decision sometime. The sooner the better.

    Saudade Software—think about it for a second. Saudade is a sentiment of longing and nostalgia, for things that will never come back, i.e. one's childhood. Our goal is to do away with that feeling and bring the fans back to their Halcyon Days of youthfulness and joy.

    No offense, Gen, but that's a word no one really knows. Expect for the Portuguese, of course. Though that really doesn't matter too much, not many know where the term Capcom came from, after all.

    More importantly, though, it has distinct melancholic connotations, as it's about feeling incomplete and hoping for something that won't happen. Not really a tone I'd like to go with. We should be more positive and inspiring than that.

    Not that many people know what Halcyon means either, Edich—Legends fans might, but not even all that many Legends fans I know are aware of it, namely many of the fans that are currently raging madly at Capcom's decision.

    Saudade Saviors Software might get the point across more clearly, I suppose. We're here to save the Project, to fill in a gap filled only with sorrow.

    True, but Halcyon has stronger ties to the game regardless.

    Though the addition of the word "saviors" helps the name a lot, as otherwise just at a glance, it would seem our company made soul-crushing games or something of the sort.

    "BlueMan Team"

    ... That's just an idea I had a few years ago. It was based on Sonic Team and Team Ico, especially considering I was creating the concept of my BlueMan game series at the time.

    Also, MegaMan is a a Mega"Man" and also blue.
