I think, you know about the "PlatGEnWohl" name. It is the codename, as you see, this project's name is "Platformer Game Engine". And I think, we must select the end name for the release of this project, before we finish releasing it. This is important - as this is the project's face.

My little things:
Because GNU OS uses the Linux kernel, and the target OS naming is GNU/Linux. => After the realization of PGE with a full tool pack and the engine part, SMBX-version of PGE: (PGE with SMBX configs, graphics, musics, sounds, algorithms) will be named SMBX/PGE (not "NSMBX", NOT "SMBX 1.4" etc.).

Don't forget, this is only a collector of ideas and target name we will select when we will be ready for it.
Now project have working name "PGE Project"

About variants:
  • "Platformer Game Engine" (PGE) is current working title, but still be too generic, and also by "PGE" in google you can find: PG&E (energetic company in USA), PGE Arena (a stadium in the Poland), "Polish Energy Group". So, is hard to find in the google. However "PGE by Wohlstand" gives the right result.
  • "Kitten Platform Studio" seems unserious, and now I think to growl up project into higher level to let the indie developers use it for making real projects, not only just a child toy (like legacy engine was). In nearest feature is planned to redesign logo to look more prestigious than just a child toy. Even I like cats, but I with my nearest collegues are discussed that is no connection between cat and game engine, and using cat just "because liking cats" is not good way.
  • "WohlSoft Platform Game Studio" - just a small idea in my mind which based on title of our community and describing it's purpose. Title seems long and is not so unique (there are LOT of projects with "Studio" word in title, etc.)
  • "RetroMaker" (by CaptainSwag101), even interesting title, but our project can be used not only for retro-style games, and also for any other game styles (look at Blade game as graphical design example, even a case of unique gameplay feature like ability to manipulate with a time, etc).
  • "Platformer Maker", or "Platformer Creator", or "Platformer Toolkit." (by Mikepjr) seems very generic and not unique
The best title must be: short, simple (to easy remember), unique (must be easily found in the search engines without guessing and describing extra things, "PGE" is not unique and gives lot of junk results instead our project).

i think DONT call it platformer game engine becouse i know many engines with this name (and similar)
for example:

Oh, Stinky Game Maker... :comando: All "Engines" created on GameMaker is a pseudo-engines, the real game engine always there is Game Maker.

Veudekato wrote:http://gamua.com/starling/
"Cross platrofm" is not "Platformer game", this means, engine can used on any OS and hardware: Linux, Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS, etc.
This is not "Platformer game" engine, this is game engine for everything.

Veudekato wrote:http://martinpiecyk.com/site/platformengine/
And... "Stinky game maker" for this too. :boredom:

Veudekato wrote:http://www.openprocessing.org/sketch/17115
This is not an engine.

I think, these "Children toys" haven't importance, and they can't get name as brand

Veudekato, elitalianoverde means SMBX-version of engine, what will be published only on SMBX-forums (because Mario's graphics now illegal, because not allowed by Nintendo copyright content). But engine name must not named or be similar to other brands. (Don't repeat Redigit's mistake!)
We can officially publish Nintendo's graphics only after direct legalization of them. Even with them, engine name MUST NOT copy or imitate brand marks. This is most important.

Well PGE already is a good name, but there should be something unique in it.

Here you can see it has a own name too (A open-source Zelda). http://www.solarus-games.org/ [Solarus]
Besides that I don't have a good name, but if I extended the name PGE I would call it UPGE (Universal Platformer Game Engine) or CPGE (Crossplatform Platformer Game Engine) or PGEX (Platformer Game Engine X) or all together UCPGEX. I just wave my thought :cool:

But the point what I want to say is that for me the name is not unique enought. For example someone wants to find the engine via google, so he types "Platformer Game Engine" and as there are a lot of programs/games/projects with this name he would probably not find it. Instead with a unique name, it will be more likely to find it. You can find "Solarus" at the forth entry in google, noone has trouble to find it with, because of the name.

So still I think a unquie name is better.

I figure the name should have something to do with the Anthony plot thingy going on. As in, a name referring to things like Anthony, the Likvi, raincoats, etc.

The ones i thought of are "Anthony's Awesome Adventure", and "Stewart & Anthony". Of course, i'm just assuming we're gonna use Anthony and his acquaintances, rather than, say, Gadget the Gearoid or something.

That being said, i think MechMush is a brilliant idea.

I think, all game projects must be added, even if they will be published separately to give game choice.

P.S.>
O no, I just found, "Mechanical Mushroom" is a boutique :lol: https://mechanicalmushroom.com/

Notice how the word "still" is used in the second post. He's saying his opinion hasn't changed.
