PostSubject: And the Name of the Game is...   Sun Jun 21, 2009 5:54 am

As some of you, well, most of you know, MC is being used as the basis of a video game. Can I get a \/\/007 from all of the sites geeks? Anyway, the game is being created to be the first of a series that is going to fall under the name IUNE (which stands for Infinite Universes Never Ending, and is credited to Copy'N'Paste.) Toryn, the game's acting director, has asked me to come up with a title. In that spirit, I started writing, but at about the time that I had written enough cliche and stupid titles to drive a person mad, it was presented to me by Darth Elmo that I might lift from shoulders the burden of trying to figure out the perfect title and just ask the lot of you. So, the idea is that I enter all the ideas that I've come up with and you guys vote for the ones that you like. During round one of the voting process, everyone will get ten votes. If, however, you cannot find five or even one vote that you like, you may suggest your own title instead and it will be added to the next round of voting. I will include, with certain titles, their reasons and/or explanations.

ROUND ONE
elimination round
One Person: ten Votes

1.Impressions of the Impossible
2.Impressions of the Unreal
3.In the Realm of Reality
4.Will to Live
5.Endless Horizon
6.Interpretation of a New Prophecy
7.MC Paradox (This one is for Toryn, who has made a point of mentioning on several occasions how improbable it is that a bunch of 'Mystic Creatures' could exist on earth without being recognized.)
8.Speak Only Once
9.The Second Hand (It does sound like a clock reference, but what it really refers to a certain psychological problem that writers sometimes suffer from where a character 'writes itself'.
10.With Spirit

12.The Remnants of a Dream

27.Sea of Infinity
28.Buried Beneath the Years

2. Once, technically, although she had died several times before coming to this site when I was trying to stop playing her, but the people on the RP didn't quite know what medical science was...

1.I just kept my notepad on my person for a couple days/weeks and wrote stuff down as it came to me... You know, a song would play, someone would say something, I would read something, and BAM! the ideas start hitting me left and write. As you can see, the muse got me good once or twice, but at other times...

2.CPR, baby, resuscitation from the dead...

CnP, leave your Panto lines in the past. They areonly for the enjoyment of the sound techs who had nothing better to do with their time except memorise the script to watch you squirm the next year... Muhahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahah... *ahem*

And Whilaroo, she was DEAD, and I mean DEAD, but then they used something called 'magic' (this was on an HP site...). Eh, oh well.

How do explain the sun rising in the morning?

Magic!

The color of the sky?

Magic!

The wonderful taste of pie?

Magic!

Is that your answer to everything?

I love almost all of them Whil, you're making it very hard to narrow it down to just 10.

But, here goes....

17.Death by any other Name (Would a Rose by any other Name Smell as Sweet?)

This is the one that makes me feel the most... emotional. I can't think of any simple phrase or name that has made me think the way I did when I first read this. I don't know how much of the actual name we could use, but I absolutely love that tagline.

23.Prophecy Unwritten
24.The Third Door
25.A Nightmare Not Unwanted
32.Death of Innocence
33.End of Innocence
36.To Smell the Roses

I can imagine...
ic//
"Never get too ahead in life, that you forget the simple things, the simple pleasures," he spoke softly, "Don't forget, you'll always have people there to be strong with you, you'll never be alone. And above all, never forget, when the world is crashing down around you, never forget... to smell the roses"
Time passes
"He was wrong," the now grown boy thought to himself, "They weren't there for me... There was no one there to hold me up, to keep me going... No one but myself."
ooc//
...hmm... ehkay.

48.Tears of the Heart
49.Season of Darkness
51.333 Moons
52.Our Doom
53.Of a World Unseen
56.The Nature of Fantasy
58.Universitas Latentis
59.Cor Adumbra

I like the Latin... We could always consider more like it.

63.The Pen is in your Hand
66.Dawn Spirit
70.My Fondest Nightmare
76.Fall to Mortality
101.Chrysalis Unopened
108.In Defiance
119.Lines in the Sand
126.Rise of the Moon, The Falling Sun, Give Me a Name, and Watch Me Run
123.Sanctify my Heart
133.Give Me Your Hand
135.Finest of Lines (Are you willing to cross it?)
144.Like a Feather Blown
146.The Inkwell Untouched
148.I Plead Insanity
160.The Pages of Fiction
167.Ominous Sky
178.Empty Book
183.While I still Draw Breath
208.Six Walls Fallen
212.Lost in Lunacy
220.Written in Blood
221.Presence of Mind
223.The Reaper's Song
224.The Annals of time
233.Prophecy Dictate (Dictated Prophecy?)
238.History of a Signature
239.Story of the Undersigned
247.A Shadow Lost
248.One Fatal Mistake (Loving You)
257.Broken Reality
260.As Destiny Would Have It

Hrm.
Quite a few more than ten thar, eh?

They're all so good... And this list is just naming a small portion of the ones I liked....

Well... Here goes on the narrowing down...


17.Death by any other Name (Would a Rose by any other Name Smell as Sweet?)
25.A Nightmare Not Unwanted
53.Of a World Unseen
56.The Nature of Fantasy
70.My Fondest Nightmare
76.Fall to Mortality
123.Sanctify my Heart
133.Give Me Your Hand
144.Like a Feather Blown
146.The Inkwell Untouched
148.I Plead Insanity
160.The Pages of Fiction
224.The Annals of time
221.Presence of Mind
238.History of a Signature
248.One Fatal Mistake (Loving You)

Special mention:
126.Rise of the Moon, The Falling Sun, Give Me a Name, and Watch Me Run
I would like to see this somewhere... Maybe a tagline for one of the characters...

Aw... That didn't work did it? Since I'm the "director"(although, I'm not quite sure how it happened), do I get extra votes?

Also, some of the things we need to take into account... The name should reflect the game, at least a little bit... So, anything that has to do with the player influencing the story shouldn't be in it, as the story will be entirely preset.

As Grand Director of our fair game, you do have final say and, should you choose to exercise your prerogative, can have as many votes as you wish. I was going to vote myself, but now I'm not sure if that will be necessary... I hadn't realized that you really liked this stuff that much... Should you desire me to vote, or if there is anyone else on the site interested in voting upon 'the name of the game', please either tell me or do so, respectively, now. Otherwise, the next round of voting shall begin. The rules of said round to be specified ere it begins...

Concerning your fears on the subject of the preset story, I totally agree that the story shall be preset, but as far as I know, the only people playing the game will either be those involved in its creation or the people who wrote the original characters... This taken into consideration, the title being of a self-created nature would have a more poetic meaning. In other words, it would be indicative of the actual designers of the game. Also, as far as I know, anyone who wishes to put the effort into writing their own characters in the game will not only be allowed but welcomed to do so. I may be misunderstanding, but these were the reasons behind the titles conceptions. Well, that and some of them just sounded cool at the time... However, I do agree that the ending title must have something, remotely, to do with the game itself... But being the writers... heh, heh, we could 'write in' whatever connection to the title that we wish. Of course, that will only be necessary if the title chosen is incredibly deviant from the story itself, which I doubt...

57.Beauty of a Moment (For, is that not what life itself is about? Truly, tragedy abounds when one can no longer take a minute to stand and enjoy the very life about them...)

59.Cor Adumbra (As I have said before, I do not speak Latin, and thus cannot ratify the meaning of these words. Yet, a heart of shadows is what I believe it says, and that is exactly of what this story is made... Another possible translation was the sketched or sketchy heart, which is reminiscent of the writing that has birthed the characters within.)
68.How Deep the Well (Creativity, emotion, life itself springs forth from the proverbial 'well'. In this case I speak of the heart, and the emotion of the story itself in all who so love it.)

106.A Shadow Stretched Across the World (This one was invented by Darth Elmo, though he strongly denies any recollection of the actions which led to its creation. At first, I disliked the title for its length, but it has since grown on me. This too is a sort of vague idea of what happens specifically to Shadow and to a lesser extent Bart.)

119.Lines in the Sand (I told you that it was one of my favorites, and since no one else has picked it, I shall do so. The reference it makes is to the line drawn in the sand which a person is dared to cross, and as we all know, life has much more than just one choice. Thus the plurality of the title. What's more is the more lines one crosses, the further in a certain direction one will go. This adds an extra little bit to the title's meaning, asking essentially where you are willing to go...)

132.The Heart Shall be Also (Even if you have never touched a Bible in your life you will probably have heard the verse, "Where your treasures are, there your heart shall be also." The concept of this has always caused me to wonder, and the idea of the fact that most of the characters on MC treasure one or more of the other characters indicates so touching a thought that... I think I'm gonna cry...)

143.How Many Moons (This is, of course, a prophecy reference, and at the same time reflects the fact that no one really knows how long they have to live...)

152.Death is a Window (None of us really knows to what, and yet we all seem to fear it dreadfully, but should we? Also it indicates that one or more of the characters involved will probably end up in the grave by the end of the story. Whether that person or persons is/are one of the villains or heroes is, of course, unknown to any but the writers, and perhaps not even they...)

175.How Heavy the Heart (By now it must seem fairly obvious that I'm just a sentimental sap and love these little references to much stronger emotions.)

243.Portrait Cast in Shadow (The dark face and countenance that you cannot quite see, the clothing of fabric so black and worn, but so much more the eyes as deep as the abyss frighten you to the core. Cold creeps down your spine like ice water. An uncontrollable shiver runs through your limbs, seizing them in its iron grasp and shaking violently. But your greatest horror comes with a flash of lightening that breaks with a roar through the raging waters that beat down from the sky upon the windows so close. It comes when you realize that it is not into the face of a long ago painted work of art that you stare, but into a mirror upon the visage born by yourself.)

Well, the part two of the scenario should be getting started. The game will be extremely delayed from our first point of view because I have Linux Ubuntu with no animation program. I can only sprite, and it's as hard as hell to sprite under GIMP, I tell ya. Especially with the remade IUNE sprites. I'm thinking of, ONCE AGAIN, changing the style to make it a little more convenient to GIMP.

Welcome to round two... This round shall be played out with a single significant difference to the last round. Now, instead of simply voting on a myriad of titles that are all slapped together in a hodgepodge, every voter will pick their two favorite titles from each of the other voter's previous votes. Confused yet? Allow me to attempt simplification through an example. When I vote, I shall select two titles from each of the other person's lists... This should, in theory aid in the elimination process, or at the very least in the determination of those titles which are most widely enjoyed... Remember, you pick two titles off of each individual list, excepting your own, creating a new list of titles that were chosen by other people that you think make the cut...

Round Two
Redemptive Round
One Person: Twelve Votes (Split into Increments of Two)


I shall, for the benefit of the voters, include here a recap of the previous round:

Naveion's votes:
26.Fragments of Memory
45.Greatest Fear
63.The Pen is in your Hand
70.My Fondest Nightmare
84.Heart of a Shadow
137.One Last Shooting Star
144.Like a Feather Blown
191.Flowers Black as Night
264.Shadows of the Mountain
235.Rain of Tears

Copy'n'Paste's votes:
24.The Third Door
92. In the Distance
94.Try not to Cry
77. Hidden in the Shadows
197.A Lost Way
207. Purity of Darkness
46. In Nothing Complete
34. Ending Implied
1.Impressions of the Impossible
165. One More Minute

Allyssianne's votes:
11.Never Stop Running
41.Shadowfall (Credited to Darth Elmo)
48.Tears of the Heart
80.On Blades Edge
96.Cry of the Night
116.Born of Darkness
121.The Foretold (Credit to Naveion)
215.History Unheard of
228.Behind the Mask
235.Rain of Tears

Shadow's jaw drops... whilaroo smiles... whilaroo attempts sarcasm, forgetting that Shadow can't see or hear him... Whilaroo unintentionally makes a bad pun... CnP comes an inch away from headshanking whilaroo...again... Shadow saves whilaroo from yet another brutal death, hallelujah!

MAGIC!

Prism's votes:
247.A Shadow Lost
12.The Remnants of a Dream
209.Burned into Memory
218.Sparks from the Fire
146.The Inkwell Untouched

Prism dawdles... CnP expresses... what was that, concern, outrage, confusion, brotherly love, a prologue to a good headshanking?

3.In the Realm of Reality
23.Prophecy Unwritten
25.A Nightmare Not Unwanted
14.Fly on Broken Wings
43.No Given Reason

Darth Elmo's votes:
11.Donít Stop Running
33.End of Innocence
43.No Given Reason
50.I Can Just See the Horizon
86.Say My Name
94.Try not to Cry
167.Light up the sky
177.The World's a Stage
21.Life in Purgatory
214.Chapter 1

Prism gets snooty about his voting process...

Toryn has trouble making decisions... Toryn goes ballistic with the voting thing... Whilaroo feels like he accomplished his task...

Toryn's votes:
17.Death by any other Name
25.A Nightmare Not Unwanted
53.Of a World Unseen
56.The Nature of Fantasy
70.My Fondest Nightmare
76.Fall to Mortality
123.Sanctify my Heart
133.Give Me Your Hand
144.Like a Feather Blown
146.The Inkwell Untouched
148.I Plead Insanity
160.The Pages of Fiction
224.The Annals of time
221.Presence of Mind
238.History of a Signature
248.One Fatal Mistake

Special mention:
126.Rise of the Moon, The Falling Sun, Give Me a Name, and Watch Me Run
(Whilaroo does a little happy dance)

Whilaroo is so happy that he allows a breech of protocol for the game's director/thingy...

Sarcastic outrage ensues from Darth Elmo...

whilaroo's votes (That's right! I voted on my own titles!):
57.Beauty of a Moment
59.Cor Adumbra
106.A Shadow Stretched Across the World
119.Lines in the Sand
132.The Heart Shall be Also
143.How Many Moons
152.Death is a Window
175.How Heavy the Heart
243.Portrait Cast in Shadow

whilaroo proves once again that he is full of hot air...

Elmo starts to get antsy. CnP is frightened by Elmo's dreadful spelling which has caused a bit of a faux pas... Elmo fixes the issue... CnP regales us with the tales of his personal woe... whilaroo prays that he is never forced to use such a computer as CnP is now chained to as Prometheus was to the stone only to have his liver torn out every day by a vulture...

Naveion's votes:
70.My Fondest Nightmare (I dunno, it just sticks to the plot fairly well...)
84.Heart of a Shadow (And this also does...)

Copy'n'Paste's votes:
77. Hidden in the Shadows (Because isn't that what we are all doing?)
46. In Nothing Complete (Just so poetic.)

Allyssianne's votes:
80.On Blades Edge (I do have to admit that in the plot many characters were always on the edge of something...)
228.Behind the Mask (Don't try to hide behind words... They'll never cover you.)

Prism's votes:
12.The Remnants of a Dream (That's what I would've thought if I were in that situation... A dream, or a nightmare.)
25.A Nightmare Not Unwanted (It just feels good saying that.)

Darth Elmo's votes:
50.I Can Just See the Horizon (Because that's where it all ends...)
214.Chapter 1 (Sequel, anyone?)

Toryn's votes:
144.Like a Feather Blown (And softly lifts through the air, only to touch ground once the task has been done.)
248.One Fatal Mistake (I don't know why this seems to fit in perfectly...)

whilaroo's votes:
106.A Shadow Stretched Across the World (The Void much?)
152.Death is a Window (That you look through, but only see the eerie figures of the acts to be done.)

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
"Though thy crest be shorn and shaven thou," I said, "art sure no craven,
Ghastly, grim, and ancient raven, wandering from the nightly shore.
Tell me what the lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore."
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
