suggestion for the product titles

Post by jack1974 » Thu Jan 23, 2014 11:31 am

I'm setting up everything for the game... even if beta/preorder is still planned at end of month :wink:
I was wondering what would be more clear to use for the product name? I mean since I split the boy/girl versions? I made a list, not sure which one is better, or if you have suggestions:
Roommates (Play As Anne) - Roommates (Play As Max)
Roommates Girl Version - Roommates Boy Version
Roommates Female Version - Roommates Male Version

or something else? is a minor thing but I want to make sure people don't buy the wrong one by mistake :mrgreen:
The fact is that the title refers to the character you're using (Max/Anne) and not the romances available (differently for example from Spirited Heart Girl's Love).

I don't know if it is feasible at this stage of the game but is it possible to make one of the 'o' in Roommates into one of the standard gender symbols?
Example: Ro♀mmates - Ro♂mmates

I think it would cute and little cheek and tongue plus most people know the standard gender symbols.

If you have one for both together you could use something like this: ♀♂ but with the circles (o's) linked together.

Aaah, ok. Then it should be just clear with version you are buying.

Roommates - Anne's Version or Anne's Side.

I think including the character's name is a better than just saying, 'Girl's/Female's Version' or 'Boy's/Male's Version'.

If one just identifies it by Gender, then Version, it feels to me as a customer, a female should only buy the 'Girl's Version', or a male should only by the 'Boy's Version'. Admittedly, this is just a minor bit on perspective which others certainly may feel differently.

But something like:
Roommates - Anne's Story/Side/etc.
Should be fairly clear, especially when it is on the ordering page.

OK thanks, makes more sense to use the character name indeed :)
