Name Too Long?

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Do you think Yeti Kart Racer is too long for the game of my game? My domain was going to be yetikartracer.crocserve.com, but i think just the name alone is long. Please let me know what you think. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Yeti Kart Racer Dev

Yeah, it's too long i think, "Yeti Racer" sounds better, i searched that word on google and not many people used it.

I think two words is the average length for game names eg:
Team Fortress
Unreal Tournament
Happy Wheels
Dead Island
Heavy Rain
Dead Space
Killing Floor
Mirrors Edge

But there are games that have three words which are pretty well known eg:
Super Meat Boy
Super Mario Bros
Rainbow Six: Vegas
Worms World Party

And Yet It Moves is four, but definitely try to keep it shorter than "Sonic and SEGA All Stars Racing with Banjo Kazooie"Jayjay2012-06-12 07:06:17

Don't think it's too long at all

2 or 3 words is pretty standard and your name is to the point and explains exactly what type of game it is

I think it's perfect; short and descriptive. VampyricalCurse2012-06-12 10:32:03

"Super Epic Yeti Car Racer For The Win" would be much more concise.

Seems perfect ... it give just enough details about the game ... ok it's a kart race with yeti ... if you have to repeat this name 10 times speaking about it you can always use a very short project alias name such as "YKR".
