Hey guys. I need help with a name for my game. In the game you are a dwarf who is navigating a cavernous maze designed by the other player. During the game, the other player will spawn monsters (goblins, trolls, gargoyles, etc.) to kill you. There are rpg elements and the dwarf will level up and find weapons and items as the game progresses. The dwarf wins by finding a dragon lair and killing the dragon and escaping the maze.

I want to come up with a really cool name for my game. I am thinking of something along the lines of "The Caverns of Gûl" or some kind of fantasy language name.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

How about....

For a simple name, maybe:

The Depths
or
Caverns

For a fantasy name, what about:

Drogmar's Quest
or
(Fantasy name)'s quest :)

If possible, I would like a name that conveys a "lost panic stricken" feeling. I won't get into details on the mechanics, but you can literally get lost in the caverns in this game.

I like your suggestions of

I like your suggestions of "Unlit Path". I can't decide if I will use a fantasy name or not.

I kind of like Unlit Paths, Unlit Passages, or Unlit Tunnels.

What about something like this?

Title: "Forgotten Paths"
Subtitle: "The Ancient Caves of Kron."

Or

Title: "Ancient Paths"
Subtitle: "The Forgotten Caverns of Kron."

Design for the future! ;)

How about: "Journeys into Darkness - The Forgotten Caverns of Kron"

The website is available from GoDaddy for $9.99: http://www.journeysintodarkness.com

I used the plural form (Journeys) because you maybe could design OTHER games with Mazes. Also you may want to play more than one time, which makes it "Journeys" instead of just the singular form! :P

Also some idiot wants people to pay $1895 for the name: www.journeyintodarkness.com

This could allow you to develop other games using a similar model. Instead of a Cavern it could be a Dungeon, a Keep, perhaps a Stronghold or an Underground city (good for Dwarves and Dark Elves!), etc.

I could picture a "Journeys into Darkeness - The Underground city of Tyr", etc...

I really like 'unlit' as well. I think the connotations are in line with the panic you mentioned.

What about this mashup:
Title: "Forgotten Paths -- (the) Unlit Caverns"

You guys have had some great ideas. I especially like "Journeys into Darkness".

Now I just need a really cool fantasy name. I like "Kron", but I'm open to suggestions.

Journeys into the darkness

That name makes me think of Descent: Journeys into the Dark. For that reason alone I'd steer clear.

Why don't you try:

Unlit: Kor-ul's Quest.

agreed abdantas

agreed abdantas, though I think 'unlit', as an adjective, needs to take an object like Caverns or something.

Okay, how about this. I think it sounds pretty cool.

Dark and Deadly Paths
The Forbidden Realm of Dor Gûl

I realize the title doesn't mention anything about caves, but that can be in the description.

I think that's too wordy. Personally I would choose either Dark or Deadly but not both.

How about this one?

Delphian's Hidden Path to Lithoria? After reading this post, I immediately went to the thesaurus and looked up dark, unlit, and light. Delphian is dark. So how about having the dwarf's name be Delphian. Lithoria is a made up word. But in the Thesaurus Lithoria came up as Lithorio. Which means a womanizer. Lol. So I was thinking just putting in Lithoria as the city's name that Deplhian is searching for or is on a quest for the king from Lithoria? Lithoria came to me instantly due to LIT. A play on words from not dark, as in Lit. Does this title help any?

I'd like to thank everyone for their help. You guys were great!
