What do you name your project?

Kind of a stupid question but it has always troubled me. I’m talking about this

What do you do when you don’t have a game name yet? Does project name even matter?

I know you can change project name but like this guy says, who would want to corrupt an almost completing game just because you want to change the project name? Any tips on choosing a good project name?

Thank you for your time!

A1_UE_GA1_L1_V1_R1
A1 = General letter alphabetic
GA1 = game1
L1 = potential name of the project: Love1 for example
V1 = version 1
R1 = revision 1
Any change you making can be R2, R3, other significant changes can be V1

I usually use this type of naming, but it’s very depends on what exactly you want to track, A1 - can be only used in 2017 for example, GA1 can be used for GAmes while VR for VR games and so on. Everyone can come up with their ideas, I actually would like to know how other people naming their projects, because I had to imagine my own style, never learned the Professional versioning :cool:

Just give it a working title. It’s a pretty common technique when you don’t have a final title yet. A working title doesn’t need to be perfect. :slight_smile:

I’d pick the most boring nothing-to-see-here ‘accountant’s convention’ name you can think of…
Why? Just in case… your backups ever end up on a leaky or exposed ‘Amazon S3 Bucket’… :stuck_out_tongue:
