Suggestions for the Name of the SE Game

12 Jun 2017 07:05

Continuation of this thread on the old forum

Note: in order to cut down on the fluff and non-constructive posts, I'd like to ask that people please refrain from making suggestions you aren't actually serious about. If you suggest something, be prepared to defend and stand by it.



As most of you probably know, SpaceEngineer plans to eventually develop a realistic space exploration game based on SE when the engine is completed. Naturally, this game will need a name.

Some notable suggestions so far:
► Show Spoiler


Most amusing suggestion :P
Stargate Trek Wars: Battlestar Farscape - The Quest for Babylon 5

What are your ideas? What do you think the game should be called?

The "quest for" bit is a reference to Infinity, right? :D

All depends on what the game would be about, but if the game focuses on science and exploration, then why not "A look inside Stephen Hawking's mind"

Of the suggestions so far I like Uncharted Worlds the best.  I'm not sold on it though -- I just can't think of anything better offhand.


Edit:  Actually this name has really grown on me lately.  It's simple, evocative, and really captures what the Space Engine gameplay experience would involve.

some more ideas came to my mind:
"sea of stars"
"galactic void"
"a new genesis"
"infinite adventure"
"andromeda"
"Aphelion"
i like watsisname suggestion very much. it could look very cool with some fonts.
the problem with that name is that when people will try to search for it they would need to write in google s p a c e maybe and that will prevent some publication in my opinion. and if they will write just "space" there will be lot of results before the game itself

The Potato, please edit your previous post instead of making double posts.

Also, in order to cut down on the fluff and non-constructive posts, I'd like to ask that people please refrain from making suggestions you aren't actually serious about. From now on, if you suggest something, be prepared to defend and stand by it. (This rule was in place on the old thread as well). I'll add this note to the OP.

I mean something like 'Every One's Sky' or 'Everybody's Sky' at least half-serious.
(Because English is not my language, I do not know what is better.)

I imagine a game that everyone can play as he likes it. So 'Every One's Sky'.
Of course, that is because of the name similarity with another game probably not possible.
