Today I have two matters on the agenda. Let’s start with the most important one. I want to name my game… uh… associ…compa… oragniza…. thing. Studio? Studio!
Since I’m one person, I could just release games under the name GlassHeart, buuut I don’t want to anymore. Everyone has fancy names, so why not me? I could make a nice logo and, if one day I get my own site, I’ll know what to call it. For now it’s just something I want to do, so let’s leave it at that. ^_^
I decided against any Japanese names. It might be cool, but ultimately my games have nothing to do with Japan, aside from the fact that VNs originated there. I’ll explain the thought process behind each idea to help you make a choice. I’m not necessarily going to choose the most popular, but it might help make up my mind. You can select up to three names, so please vote, nee~? =3=
- Selavi Game Studio/Selavi Visual Novels (not sure which sounds better)
Selavi is the most personal, and it might be my favorite. It comes from the French “c’est la vie” (= that’s life). Since my real name is Lavinia, it also could be interpreted as c’est Lavi (my nickname). Yes, it’s pretty silly, but I think it’s sorta cool to have my name hidden inside the organization(?) name. Don’t laugh, damnit!
- VNeophyte Games
VN + Neophyte ( = beginner/rookie)
- Novi Games
VIsual NOvel. VI NO, Novi
- VisualPursuit Games
Originally the name for a game idea, I thought it could work for other purposes as well. A VN is a virtual pursuit after all.
- VisualNovice Games
- GlassHeart Visual Novels
Not my favorite, but maybe sticking to a sort of known name is better? I had to add it.
- DoseOfHazard Visual Novels
Sounds more like a band name, but I like it. making something like music, games, art etc. that you plan to show others means taking a risk.
- OddChemistry Visual Novels
Making VNs is kind of like chemistry. As a beginner you’re mixing different elements and hoping for the best. lol
Our second matter is: should I make a tumblr to post minor stuff that don’t really need a whole post on this blog. There have been quite a few moments when I just wanted to show a sketch or write a few words, but didn’t want to bother my subscribers with nonsense. I might add other things there besides vn dev posts, like anime/game related shtuff and other cool things I find online. Whaddaya think?
