The title is a player’s first introduction to a game.

It’s the first step in creating a world  or experience someone might want to explore. Done well, it opens a door into that world and invites players in. Done poorly, the game might not even rate a second glance. As such, this simple word or phrase, the name of the game carries with it a LOT of power.

But considering how much hangs on it, the title doesn’t get a lot of attention beyond the people publishing games.

Well that changes today with this panel.

The naming game is important but it is not easy. Our panelists wrestle with how to settle on the best title for a game. There are  a lot of factors that weigh into this decision and the goal of our discussion is to explore as many as we can.

The panel:

Stephen Buonocore (Stronghold Games)

Kuba Polkowski (NSKN Games)

Sara Erickson (Renegade Game Studios)
