    Hi everyone,
    So we have been debating what title we should give to our new incoming game. We are referring to this game:

    http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=5616

    We are thinking of this title:
    Defender Chronicles: Legend of the Desert King

    For the app store, we'll just put "Defender Chronicles" to keep it short.

    Please help us to decide. If you think this is not good, please state why and provide alternative.

    Thank you and I appreciate everyone help on this.

    Edit: hmm, so far the vote says no.
    Alternative titles so far:
    Defender of the desert king
    Desert Legend
    Desert Legend Cronicles
    Desert Defender (x3)
    iChivalry
    iChivarly Me Timbers
    legend of the defender
    iLegend
    iDefender
    Desert King
    Legendary Defense
    King's Decision

    are you planning on making a series of these games since its defender cronicles

    the title you have is great for the game

    if its not going to be a series of games why not just Defender of the desert king

    Chronicles is not good for a TD, at least I think so.

    The game looks and sounds awesome, and the name sounds good too, but I think that more information would help our decision. Its hard to think of a good title based off of so little info, but the game looks very cool. Good luck with your naming, and I like the choice you though up.

    EDIT-maybe we at TA aren't that great with names anyway haha we advised against idracula as a name and look how that turned out lol

    It's a good point.
    It's hard to name a game without knowing too much about it.
    I'm assuming that the game is all set in the desert, hence the title Desert in it.
    To simplify it, you could always just call it Desert Defender??
    But that's simply based on an uneducated assumption of what the actual game is about....

    The name is way too long: Desert Defenders or any other short name that includes the word "defender".

    Yes, we even thought about iDefender. Is it better?

    It's not just desert. There will be other places. But desert is the home of the hero.

    personally would find "Desert Defender" or similar better

    That may work but desert is only one of the place. The title seems to kind of restricting it to only desert, no?

    Yeah, I still think the generic i__________ sounds a little cheesy, even with idraculas success. I think that shortening your title as others have suggested but keeping the main focus on "desert" or "defender" would work best. It seems as though, in general, people on the appstore like fairly focused titles, and I think you'll definetly be able to rely on screenshots to draw others in (if the rest of the game looks as good as the previously posted pic)

    I like the name but see my reason above. It kinds of restrict the game to at desert only.
     
  16. iChivalry or iChivarly Me Timbers is my vote. Keep it simple and short. You don't want tons of search results for those searching for it on itunes to pop up. Though many similar naming clones will pop up shortly thereafter if it's successful though.

    I would drop chronicles for sure. You guys know the story and can do better than a bunch of blind guesses. It seems like longer titles are not good, so focus on something concise.

    How about you do something similar to iDracula with an add-on name? Personal preference, but "i" anything sounds dated.

    Why not keep it Defender Chronicles? And then as with iDracula -- Undead Awakenings (which doesn't completely make sense to me), add on Legend of the Desert King. Chronicles makes sense if there is the possibility of additional maps now and in future updates.

    Think 7 Cities. The name no longer makes sense with additional maps, although there's always a way to spin things.
