New Cube World name recap


Thanks for the comments! For those who don't know why I don't keep the name "Cube World": To avoid trademark issues and associations with Minecraft clones.

Here are a few things I've learned:

- Japanese sounding names aren't well accepted everywhere (I have no idea why), so "Kyubu" and "Kami Heroes" are out.
- Some people don't like names which are too childish or too cute. So "Little Cube Adventure" (my personal favorite), "Cube Boy" and "Lost in Monsterland" are out. I like this kind of names because they remind me of good old SNES/Sega Genesis times. :)
- "Spirit Hunter" sounds generic but I think most modern titles do. On the other hand I agree that it doesn't capture the true essence of my game. Gathering spirit cubes isn't so much of a focus in the game. So "Spirit Hunter" is also out.

The focus of the game is exploring a strange, huge world which is made up of cubes. Maybe someone finds a catchy name for this. :) I hope I can come up with a new list soon. New suggestions are always welcome!

Forge Quest, Mine Quest, Lands of Eternia. Also, first?

Ullallulloo said...

What happened to "Spirits of Alea" or Plains of Alea"? I like Alea at least.

Roman Pugliese said...

Hi Wollay,
I've been looking almost every day for new updates on your blog, for a loooong time. Cube world looks amazing so far, so it needs a even more amazing name...
Tessara or the Latin word for quadrilaterals(Aka cubes :3)

Roman Pugliese said...

Can we attack peacful NPC's?

CaptainInsano3 said...

Adventures of Alea maybe?

Voxe Era

wollay said...

I don't think a non-English name like Alea is a good idea.

Karney said...

How about "That Game Where You Build Stuff And Fight Monsters"?

Kye Manson said...

Voxel World?

Mumantai said...

How about Quber's Quest?

What about Bitventure?

abrokenchinadoll said...

Forge quest is taken... so is mine quest and Lands of Eternia lol..

Ryutto said...

PRISM PHANTASY

Sprinko said...

Quest of Eternity might be a good one.

Tailzdafox said...

Quadra Quest
Because cubes are made of square faces, which are quadrilaterals.

Jacob L said...

"Cobbled Together"

Andrew Niedzialek said...

Quadrelapse

MuddyTM said...

"Spiribits" fits perfectly, in my opinion. On the Cube World Forums, this name suggestion is only second to the original "Cube World" name. Any opposed?

Toshio Watanabe said...

"Heroes Story"

xzargorth said...

I liked Alea too. Plains of Despair sounds too dark, but it's cool too.

Rapolas Cepys said...

Just: My world

Lindi said...

Wixxie Empire. I don't know I just found it interesting.

Alexander Bickford said...

Righteous Quest! That should be the name of it. it sounds a bit light spirited when you say it outloud :D

Christian Taibi said...

yesyesyes

Piphee said...

Spirit Hunters / Spirit Warriors / World of Telasia / Honor Warrios / Warriors of Telasia / Spirit Fighter


Maybe? :D

I liked "Little Cube Adventure" :(

Demon said...

Legend of vox

Corey Blue said...

No Wollay dont give in because people dont get the name.Kami Heroes,and I honestly don't know what else I can name it now.Kami Heroes was legit.Your game looks like JRPG.Kami is Japanese for Spirit/Diety.Don't cave in because people wont get Kami.I don't know what else to call this game.I'm done here,I'll play regardless.

Tuxedo Mask said...

Why change the name anyway, I think cube world is the perfect description of the game and it's the name everyone is used to hearing. :)

Jacob Migdall said...

Plains of pixel land

jaks Johnson said...

I agree with Demon, Bitventure

Lindi said...

Or Bit Empire

NightmareJoker said...

Vast Lands.

Anonymous said...

Edens adventure. Or the garden of Eden.

Bruno Assis said...

It's trademarked already.

Wankar said...

This sounds good along with Kingdoms of Neveround

pixel said...

"voxel planet" or "world^3"?

Will Youmans said...

How about "Qb" or "QB". Pronounced "Cube"?

duduomg said...

Tales of Alea

Corey Blue said...

and now where back to square one..

Neil said...

Cubedem
Cubedom
And Japanese names are cool, I don't know why people don't like it.
But ultimently it is your choice
I am going to buy the game even if it is called "fluffy pony fu fu" (if your wondering fu fu means nothing at all; just made up)
Having a good title is nice because it can attract more people but the main aspect of how a game spreads is by people telling people. Multiplayer will help greatly with that.

Demon said...

Voxian

Ruhan said...

Maybe "Cube Time"

Jaekx said...

im fond of Cube Land.

Woowoo said...

Cube Quest? Cube Adventure? Adventure in Cubes? Lost in Cubeland? World of Cube?

Spaz Orientation said...

I like Lands of Eternia

Lucas Comerlato said...

M.U.O.C. World Explorers (Made Up Of Cubes)

Jr said...

Voxelventure?

Piphee said...

Alea sound like a girl name, like Aela (from Skyrim)

sundew said...

i think "Little Cube Adventure" is cool, but if people do not like the "little"
than change it to "epic cube adventure" or "grand cube adventure" etc...

jaks Johnson said...

Yes, that's the one

Akiba said...

Realm of Alea as someone mentioned in the previous blog posts, it sounds perfect.

duduomg said...

Any people like Tales of Alea?

LegendaryShade said...

Spirit Legends Tales

lionhart said...

Whispered world, forge-pix

Fredericoendres said...

Cuberland

Max Abarca Peña said...

Kubos Tales
Cubus Tales


???

Prophett said...

If u want to relate the game to the 16-bit era, maybe you should try something like "Nostalgia". This name is probably taken, but maybe someone can find a similar name.

Wankar said...

And that's supposed to be a bad thing?

Rodrigo said...

whats the ultimate goal(if there is any?) on the game?

Gerber said...

How about Abstract Realm

Spencer said...

Lost in Monsterland is still awesome.

Derrick Lavender said...

Gods of Dishonor?

RandomPasserby said...

Endless Realms

Akiba said...

Forgot to mention, it's only Latin and it captures the game just fine. Considering the english language is derived from Latin.

Spritzo said...

Cubit Raiders

Windallo11 said...

Realms

destiny

Relyte said...

Little Cube Adventure is an awesome name!
Haters gonna hate.

TwistedPeanut said...

I'm liking World³ so far.

Cyrus Emerson said...

x3 World

Ullallulloo said...

I would agree more with the Japanese, but Latin's dead and has a lot of influence in a lot of languages. It's up to you though.

Shiftyblack said...

regardless of what he decides to name the game i will always call it Cube World

blue said...

Pixel Planet

abrokenchinadoll said...

The problem with naming a game when no ones played it kinda makes things hard to make a decision on a game name. Though with the most Ive seen on this game makes me think The Oblong Adventures In Voxlandia :P

kirbo said...

"Its a Cubey World"

Bobby said...

spirit bits

spiribit

Corey Blue said...

I'm telling you Wollay,Kami Heroes was the one,but it's all up to you.You don't always go with what the community likes,it's what's best for the game.

Hero said...

"Wollay's World" I've sent multiple emails with this as a name suggestion, lol I adore your game and will people make accounts and no one else can take that name? Please say yes so all of the people that like your game before it even came out can get the good names cause they all love it so much!

Having the word "Tales" in the title is going to make it a hit no matter what comes after it ;)

Nathan Lloyd said...

Kubix

SgtBaha said...

How about Micro Cube Adventure, still has a similar sound but not as childish.

kirbo said...

"Itty Bitty Heroes"

Gerber said...

How about Abstract RealmHow about Abstract RealmHow about Abstract RealmHow about Abstract RealmHow about Abstract RealmHow about Abstract RealmHow about Abstract Realm

Sammy said...

How about Cube Planet?
It symbolizes the cubic aspect of the game and the size of the map.

Caio Gabriel said...

Pixel Adventure

Gerber said...

lol that was weird i ment to say How about Abstract Realm

philhoyt said...

ahh Lost in Monsterland and Little Cube Adventure where awesome. Remember you can not make everyone happy. So why not just make me happy!

Dolan said...

Enter the Panus

Roman Pugliese said...

What about Tessara its sounds cool, right...

JaYong Lee said...

CUPG or CUPlay or CUTION? .... pixtion?

Cubeworld fanboy '-' said...

Cube adventure, Freakin voxels, something like that.

Gabriel Marques said...

Land Escape ^^

Viktormon said...

Maybe keep it simple? "Fantasy World"? I thought "World of Wonder" sounded good until I realised it sounds too much like "World of Warcraft".
"Spirit Quest"?
Since you said its focus is exploration of a strange world... "Strangeland"...nah, but maybe somewhere that way? >,< Naming stuff is hard.
"Age of Fantasy"... aaaahg, I give up, for now.

Troy said...

I'm trying to think of something similar to "The New World". The title isn't supposed to advertise this game's cube-ness nor it's retro style or voxel engine, this game is about exploring and I think a name that captures that is what Wollay is looking for.

Squeggonic said...

Spirit of Terra?

kroltan said...

Does, indeed

FG blade said...

half spark / tales of the white spark

Hero said...

Too much like Terraria

duduomg said...

Lichquest ? Dragonquest ? Aleaquest?

Neatski said...

I'm still a fan of Spirit 'Splorers or Super 'Splorers or something that has 'Splorers in it. because 'splorers is a silly word

Cyrus Emerson said...

Because the name Cube World is so good, maybe a work around the copyright would be to have the title: (Cube Picture) World
So the word cube would be represented by an actual cube and the word "World" goes right after it. People will automatically read it as Cube World and it wouldn't have any copyright nonsense as you wouldn't be using the actual word. If this would work I think it's a good idea. :)

EmilAFN said...

"Lost within the cubes"

Derp said...

I still like the name "Wollay's World" the best

Jared Gabel said...

I think it may be too close to the "Tales" games. Tales of Vesperia, Symphonia, yadda, yadda.
Remember, Mojang just got out of a huge lawsuit from Bethesda.

Dovla, plz said...

cool sounding, yet there is a diference between pixel and a bit.

Osvaldo Pagan said...

i think Bitopia: a Pixelated journey sounds nice

Michael Louisseize said...

That was the name I suggested. http://wollay.blogspot.ca/2012/10/help-me-find-new-name-for-cube-world.html

Sammy said...

That's why we are suggesting and Wollay is filtering.

It's your game, Wollay. You know the game better than the rest of us.

LegendaryShade said...

Tales Of Cubic Hunters!

Utau said...

what about the World of Cubia

Viktormon said...

Doesn't sound too bad, but maybe focuses too much on how it looks, and not how it (supposebly) plays?

Corey Blue said...

Wollay please I'm telling you,it's going to be 1000 more bad names,we already heard half of these already,I really hope you make the right decision.

Any people agree to Alea Splorer? ( sorry for my bad english, I an brazilian )

lol said...

BitQuest

Aim said...

Neveround is still my favorite name for this game however I feel as if Kingdoms of Neveround doesn't really fit if there aren't any actual
kingdoms around.


-Neveround Stories
-Neveround Legends
-Neveround Adventures
-Tales of the Neveround
Would fit well though in my opinion

Michael Hoff said...

Dude, go back to lost in monsterland. It perfectly captures the nature of your game. Admit it.

corin.rodger said...

I disagree to, Latin is a dead language that has influenced hundreds of other languages, including English, its terms are used on a everywhere in science and is the building block in the standard system of measurements.

@Bootsie__ said...

How about Voxploration/Voxplorers/Explorxels?

MaxTale said...

GeoVenture / CubeVentures

Michael Tweedale said...

How about Adventure³. Since ³ is the math symbol for cubed! I think it would be kind of a cute name.

META Gear Solid said...

"The Wild Reach" // It's a little more mature feeling than cute, but still evokes that sense of limitless adventure and exploration. If you write it in a cute font, it will still feel cute. I hope you pick it!

MaxTale said...

"Let it Bit" or "Bitventure" (Idea from Demon) "Bit Explorer", "Cube Adventure", "Spirit Explorer" or "Explorer Adventure"
