    Hi there and welcome to the forums!

    According to a thread in the policy forum, there are up to 20 games companies beavering away here already. Aphra can supply the list of names I’m sure.

    In terms of names, I’m kind of partial to something that’s a play on the founders name, is broad enough to cover multiple development directions, has local significance, can act as a talking point abroad and is one that people like and remember.

    Hmm, wonder what that chould be…..

    Peter ;)

    Aphra.

    Don’t worry about it. About 70% of people get it first time and make a comment (usually positive).

    The other 30% need a bit of handholding but benefit from an explaination. :rolleyes:

    I don’t see that working with a Paddy Smith though

    Although Smithtronic Patrikz is about the only attempt I could make. Aphraid works very well though, might nick that one.

    Well let me see – I would call it:

    ‘Kapooki Games’
    I would set it up….. oh lets say in 2000

    And I would work damn hard with a full-time team of great guys on some interesting titles……. :)
    Working hard on getting published…..

    Dont forget other cool names like Torc Interactive (sounds great if you are thinking of setting up in Donegal!) :)

    etc. etc.

    Playing on: PS2 / Xbox / GameCube / GBA and PC – and for a break I occasionally play on a mobile or two.
