Video Game Name Generator ! 05/01/2008

Unable to find a suitable name for your brand new videogame?

Don't Panic! Here comes the Video Game Name Generator!

 

It's a little flash application which can generate random videogame names after a large list of existing titles. Be asured that you'll obtain a kickass sounding name such as "Sleepy Jetpack Apocalypse", "In Search of Lawnmover Bandit", "Deep Space Dungeon in Toyland" or "Unreal Princess Rage".

However the best of all will remain... "Maximum Badminton Dungeon" !

 

Who want to launch a game design contest with a theme generated by this application?
