AdventureQuest: GUARDIANS

Posted by on 8 comments
 

I need your help! "AdventureQuest: GUARDIANS" is up for the official name of our mobile, fantasy, 2D role playing game. Does it strike you in the heart as the right name? It certainly fits the game's main storyline. As you have surely noticed, we have gone back and forth a dozen times on the name for this game... calling it everything from AdventureQuest: BATTLEON to AdventureQuest 2 to AdventureQuest Mobile. After personally using those names for the past few months, I can honestly say it has been confusing. This game needs a unique name that is both special to our community, and has broad appeal to people who have never seen our games yet. "GUARDIANS" is the most meaningful considering the game's main story. Unlike our previous mobile games-- BattleGems and Dragons... this is a full blown real RPG. For lack of better words, it is a re-imagining of the original AdventureQuest with an advanced and flexible combat system. If you are one of many players who have stopped using PCs completely (I know, to us PC users this sounds crazy, but you would not believe the %'s of players who only play on their mobile devices now) then yes, this is the game you have been anxiously waiting for. If this is the name we go with, it would make sense to allow you to login to both the original AQ and AQW from the game to unlock story driven content from your... uh.. "ancestor."

If this game is named GUARDIANS, then this would be our lineup:

  • AdventureQuest Original- Web RPG
  • AdventureQuest Guardians - Mobile RPG
  • AdventureQuest Worlds - Web MMORPG
  • AdventureQuest 3D - Mobile/Unity MMORPG

Please help make this decision. We are "sleeping on it" tonight. If you feel this is right name for the game... go to the official FaceBook post on this and write "GUARDIANS!" in the comments box below. If you have another name that you are 100% sure is better write it! Like most decisions... there are often multiple good answers. I am sorta terrible at making decisions on things like this which is why I always come to you. Thank you in advance for being a part of the video game making process.

DerpSonic: Well, I don't have any better suggestions, and it does make sense considering it's basically a mobile version of Adventure Quest. Therefore I commend it! GUARDIANS!!
