    Today I got a very interesting email:

    So now we get to come up with a new name for Gamelab. Luckily this is happening now, before we hit the top 5 in the app store (knock on wood).

    David and I have been brainstorming ideas but nothing is jumping out at us. We have been calling it Gamelab for over 6 months now and we need some fresh brains on this problem. So I turn to you. Let's hold a contest where you get to pick the new name for Gamelab. The top 3 choices will get promo codes to Gamelab (or whatever it ends up being called).

    Some Rules:

    1. Game names can't be names of companies that already make games. During our brainstorm we really liked greenlight games but it was allready taken.
    2. We know we may have to change the radioactive logo we have now to accommodate a new name so don't let that hinder your creative thinking.
    3. We can't use names that are too risky, like GameOrgy.
    4. Be Creative and Have Fun!

    We want the name to somehow convey some of the things we find important with Gamelab. Some ideas we embrace are grassroots movement, collaboration, game independence, gaming revolution, etc.

    To get you started you can look at the mindmap David and I started by clicking here.

    Well let the contest begin! Maybe if we are lucky Gamelab will have a new name in the new year.

    Thanks in advance for your creative input!!

    If you want to talk things over or ask any questions you can call or text me at the number below. Or you can email me.
    (eight oh one) 712-5177

    Also I'll be posting what I like or don't like about the games on our Twitter Page as we go along.

    Playmix. Or Gamemix(er). I dunno. Appplay, that's a nice play on p's. I'm not very creative. Any of these work, at least based on your mindmap.

    Game fission
    Fission Games
    Game Fusion -you'd 'fuse' more games together.
    FusionCore
    Fusion Games
    Fission Labs
    Fusion Labs
    Fusion X

    It's all from the little nuclear sign in the game.

    I like Fusion Games. Fission doesn't seem to make much sense. On the game note, how about Nuclear Games?

    Why don't you just reverse it... But use your same colors and logo scheme. That way everyone will know what's up, you're not changing everything 6 months in, and you won't get sued.

    I agree, I think Fusion Games is a great one and fission doesn't make sense to me either. :p
