Alternative name for LBA

If you were to give LBA an alternative name, lets say for the north American release, what would it be?

While your at it, pick one of the alternative names suggested by other members on the forum (your favorite). The name should be appealing to the masses, and should, as opposed to lba, give a better indication of the darker nature of lba. Just not corny (e.g. Dark Twinsunian is not cool)

Most of all, be creative!

Ill post my suggestion when ive thought of a nice one.

Depends if your talking about the original or sequal, they are quite different in terms of mood really.

Well, certainly a 3rd game shouldn't use a "3" in the title now. Its been too long.

Its hard to think of any decent replacement name, however.

Little Big Adventure does have a sort of charm too it. Its hard to think up replacement names that don't sound overly cheesy, or do ridiculously.

I guess one option is just droping the initial title autogether maybe and going for just
"The Stela Enity".

Relentless was a rather dull name though, didn't really describe the game.
For the dark side of LBA 3, we of course would need to know what problems arise with the Stellar Entity Genesis. Who's the main enemy, what's the main threat?

It's a little bit early for that

And who knows, maybe LBA3 will be the most lighthearted twinsen ever.

?

Twinsen will have some bloody whining baby, a wife screaming at him for not having a job, and going through his mid-life crisis. And you say he will be happy???



How about LBA: Twinsen's Nervous Break-Down(LBATNBD for short)?
In which Twinsen gives himself deadly dosages of Morphine and starts having hallucinations, and you play in the hallucinations.

Well, it all depends what mood publishers are in at that time.
At the moment dark is "in".
Thanks to the successfull of the last Batman film, everyone under ths sun is saying their films/tv/games will be dark and gritty and what not. (Even films that will be utterly rediciolous if you try to make them dark).

So I predict in about 2 years we will have a whole wave of films and games trying to be even more dark and edge, most failing horriable.
Then someone will release some really popular lighthearted thing, and then THAT will be the thing everyone copys for awhile.

The names suggested here may interest Fred, so its probably worthwhile coming up with more interesting names (good stuff will be passed on at a later date)

Would be cool to be the person who renamed the game

Although i should highlight that he has not asked me to do this.

I simply vote for "The Stela Enity", or some variation on that.

We want a title that stands by itself, the cover can reflect its part of the series in other ways, so fans will know, but newcomers wont be put off.
I dont think we need something dark as such, more like mysterious, something that is curious in nature and unlike other game titles.

- Rising (for LBA1)
- Hidden truth (for LBA2)
- Vanished (for LBA2)
- Stellar Entity (for LBA3)
- Entity (for LBA3)
- Our Goddess (for LBA3)
