Thanks for the feedback so far :kg:

Contagion is nice, although the name should be somewhat unique for "brand" recognition and the .com domain should be available. Pandemonium.com is gone! Ditto for quarantine.

I would think a 2-word combination should work? Chai has a great list. Also, tend to like the "strain" word. It's short and can be combined easy. "Epidemic Annihilation" is cool, although I wonder if that is not too long & hard to spell?

Other ideas:
Pandemic Strain
Final Strain
Ultimate Strain
Super Strain
Annihilation Strain
Flu Wars
Super Flu
Pandemic Flu

Edit:
Biological Warfare
Bio Hazard
Pandemic Wars

In regards to the actual game: I am trying to shoot for a combination of "Pandemic 2" (flash game) and Age of Conquest. I think it might make for quite some interesting game-play? Initially I thought about a game where a player would have to prevent a disease spread, but I hit a dead end in regards to game design.

Pandemic 2 of Conquest? :D

Pandemic 2 is a good game, are you going to make it multiplayer, where people battle it out to kill more people all over the world?

As soon as I read this, this name came to mind.

Pandemonium Conquest
or even
Epidemic Conquest

If it's going to sort of be like AoC it should definitely carry over part of it's name :gott:

I'll just do a single player version to start with, but leave it open for extension to multiplayer. It's probably better to wait and see how the single player version does.

I'll finish AoC III ONLINE first (desktop), before I do any other multiplayer endeavors.

Anyhow, Conquest is a great idea. I like "Epidemic Conquest". How about "Pandemic Conquest". Would Epidemic be a better word?

I got some other suggestions as well (coworkers):
Pandemic Fever
Zodiac Strain

Something about the word Pandemic just doesn't sit right with me. Like it just sounds like it shouldn't even be a word. I don't know, perhaps I'm weird :roll:

Hmmm... Bio Hazard makes me think of chemical warfare and such...

The Strain of Death
Apocalypse
The Apocalypse Strain
The Disease that Ended the World
Armageddon Disease
The disease that caused Armageddon
The Disease of the Damned
Infestation (although that sounds more bug related)
Spread that Disease!
End Game (with diseases)
The Army of None

Question Aschi, how are you thinking of mixing the two, if i might ask? It just seems like it would be hard to do.

Epidemic implies a local region or contained area. Pandemic implies world wide. So is this world type game or more like a board game?

I like the Epidemic and Pandemic Conquest names.
Pandemic Fever isn't bad.

Here's another Strain to consider. It's short and sweet: BioStrain

Actually, although "Conquest" sounds good, thinking about it, I'd rather not have it in the name.

It still has to make sense, so if there needs to be a "the" or "of" etc, let's add it.

Quote:

World type.

Quote:

It got the heads-up from my coworkers as well (actually one of them suggested it). Other opinions?

Okay, so it sounds like "Epidemic Conquest". "Pandemic Conquest" are off the table.
So...how about (with "the" and "of" added):
Pandemic Fever of Pluto
The Zodiac Strain
BioStrain of Pandemic Portions
The Pandemic Biohazard

Hahaha :lachtot:

I think you misunderstood me aschi :D
I was talking about the general plan on how the game would work, not how to create a name :headbash:

Got it - I am still working out the details, but it might be a match made in heaven. I imaging a map ditto Age of Conquest where the game is played. You start off with a basic virus that you will use to infect the whole world. You will have 2 action items at your disposal:

  1. upgrade your virus (infectivity, complexity, speed...)
  2. (re-)deploy your virus on a province

You will be competing against other viruses as well as against the system. Your virus can either be eliminated by stronger other viruses or by being killed off with a vaccine. It can also be stopped by being quarantined or other stuff TBD.

The only way you can control the infection is with the two options from above: upgrade & deploy. You obtain action points by spreading the virus. Each action you undertake will require a certain number of action points. I imaging the game to be easy to learn, but difficult to master.
