I'm working on a lite PYL dice game where you search rooms in a dungeon and 1) find & pickup keys, 2) open and loot chests using found keys, 3) lock doors using found keys to stop monsters that are chasing you, and 4) encounter monsters. The goal is to collect the most loot from chests without 3 monsters chasing you at any given time.

It has elements similar to Zombie Dice and VERY lite dungeon crawlers but technically you never "attack" anything. The overall tone is liteHave name ideas?

Dungeon Roll, Dungeon Dice, Delve Dice, etc. are taken.

Lock & Loot is my best idea so far...

What are some of the thematic

What are some of the thematic elements of the game? Example, if the main character is named Eldrin, you could call it "Eldrin's Dice".

The tone of the game makes a difference too. If the artwork and language is light and somewhat goofy, you could do something like "Get In and Get Out!", but if it's more serious you'd probably want to go with something like "Caves of Lamora".

It sounds like Looting is the main mechanic, so perhaps something based on that name? Dungeon Loot, Dice Looters, Traps & Treasures, etc.

I haven't checked if these names are available, so be sure to double-check!

This reminds me of the slogan, Douglas (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_AG) used to have (at least aroud here): "Douglas - come in and find out".

You could use it in a similar way:
Dungeon - come in and find out

d6 dungeon?

How do you feel about the name "d6 dungeon" since the game is only comprised of 16 six-sided dice. This is a prototype logo with a modified version of the key symbol from the game dice:
