The end of the universe.

Oh, let me give this a shot...

Penultimate Utopia: The Ultimate Struggle for the Perfect Hamster.

Whaddaya think?

There are four truths in life that all must come to terms with:
1. I will die and all that I am will cease to be.
2. I am born alone and will die alone. I can never truly know another.
3. The suffering in my life is my own creation. I create my reality through my choices.
4. ALL meaning is arbitrary and relative. Life is ultimately meaningless.

I always love how all of these `Bad Name` things end up as a competition to use as many faux-pas words as you can in a row. So, to add to the difficulty for those people who want to do this after me.

NEVER USE MORE THAN ONE VOWEL IN ANY TITLE.

It is SO cliche! Psssh, vowel abuse. Shame.

Edit: Yes, y is a vowel. btw.

Every fight is a food fight when you`re a cannibal!

Why stop at vowels? If we're gonna take creative fascism that far, I reckon we ought to go the whole nine yards and ban consonants too!

Fuck it! Whoever said games needed titles? (ANSWER: a creative fascist)

Bring on RM postmodernism! Down with the system!! (despite the fact that it provides us with a viable and secure construct within which our creativity can flourish freely (to an extent... so not freely... but whatever!)).

Mine is still untitled, even though the development title is "Generic RPG" Wink

Maybe I should keep it.

You want some really good advice?

Name it what the heck you want to name it! I much prefer really unconventional titles.

For example: the typical "farm boy hears destiny's call and goes to fight the evil Warlock" plot. Why not try a title like this...

"We're off to kill the Wizard, the despicable Wizard of Gaia!"

It might sound daft, but never underestimate the power of irony.

Sounds awesome.
But the meaning of D.G.L shall remain a mystery for now.

It DID mean : "Dragon Guardian's Link"
(makes ssence with the story...)

But...eh... we're not too sure anymore
