Text adventures: What was that game called?

You know, with the guns?

My friend Kenny showed me a game called Duck Game today. That is a good name, I thought. “Hey, what do you want to play?” “How about that duck game? That was fun.” “Oh, you mean Duck Game? Sure.”

This of course is in contrast to bad names, which I have written about with aplomb. There are so, so many bad names for games.

But what Duck Game reminded me of was a fun text back and forth I had last year that is a great, real example of good naming.
