    My game is close to being done, at least I think, to be honest I'm probably wrong about that but nonetheless I haven't come up with a name that I like. It's an arcade style wave-based sci-fi sword fighting VR game, where you use your two swords to cut robot drones in half in extreme slow mo.
    I also have some gameplay footage, a bit outdated but the core gameplay hasn't changed too much.

    When it comes to naming small games I recommend avoiding proper nouns and instead use something that describes the gameplay and has a easy to remember title. You can’t go wrong with two words with similar sounds.

    So:

    Cyber Sword VR is a good example.

    Already thy know it’s VR, is about using a sword, and has a cyber feel to it.

    And it’s very easy to remember.

    Not necessarily that exact name, but you get what I mean.

    Conversely, an HORRIBLE name would be “Gladicus Rising: The First Republic”.

    What is a Gladicus? What does “Rising” even mean? What is this about? What is this boring nonsense about a first republic? Do I call it “Gladicus Rising”, “The First Republic”, or “GR:TFR”? What was the name again???

    See the difference?
