Is "Disdain" final? Because I have just thought of an idea for an alternate title: ElderShooter.

Basically, a pun on "boomer shooter" and the fact that the game used to be called "ElderJam" and also that it takes place in a Lovecraft-inspired setting. :P

But nudging close - perhaps too close - to Elder Scrolls?

I mean... Elder is just an adjective and it's not like shooter and scrolls are super close words.

True, (and I was only being semi-serious) but they do have a bit of a reputation for going after anything that they feel might infringe in their ownership of the name. I mean, they went after Mojang for making a game called Scrolls - nothing like the Elder Scrolls games, and no mention of the word Elder at all.

Disdain is final, it is related to the (cheesy) plot I intend for the game and it also, IMO, has that "90's shooter" vibe to it.



Remodeling the Cultist. Trying to steer away from that generic "Blood cultist knockoff" look.

Is that a beard, or illithid-like tentacles?

It's a mask with tentacles. :) Once it's textured, hopefully it'll be more apparent what it is.

Which makes perfect sense for a cultist in this setting. :yup:

Oh nice, this is entering an actual development.

Idea about the name ElderJam - since it has Jam in the name, maybe it could become a thing where people organize a game jam - called ElderJam - where you have to make a playable IWAD in 10 days?

Anyway - since you plan to actually develop this, would you be interested in me potentially helping out? I'm far from a coder, but I can do level design, texture work and concept art.
If not that's fine and I can stick to modding for Disdain.

I will definitely be looking to recruit level designers once the base SDK is done. :) Stay tuned!
