I thought of that, too. It makes the most sense. However, in statements, Cyan seems to refer to MORE as the version they still hope to bring about when they're in a better financial position. /shrug

I vote for just Uru. MORE is nice too, but Uru sounds better and also sounds more intriguing to new players.

And Uru would be a new name as well. I mean, there hasn't been a single version of Uru that was named just Uru, it was always Uru Live, Uru:ABM, URU:CC, Until Uru, MOUL, etc... Let's leave the subtitle and just call it Uru this time. :)

Open Uru is exactly what it will be. Why not just call it what it is?


I kinda like that! Plus it has a great acronym: OURU
Not that it's really our decision to make at all, as Lynnutte and others have said....

(my earlier suggestion of opensource URU = URUX was in jest: it sounds horrible!)

The problem with "uru" is that it's not very interesting. As I said before, it says NOTHING about the game, and to people who just hear about the game, it will be just a wierd name.

So why do I like Beyond Myst Uru? truth is, there's this series of books I read years ago, called "the spiderwick chronicles" or something like that. Lately, I heared that the the authers wrote another book later. It was in the same world as "spiderwick", but the story was few years after "spiderwick". It was called "beyond the spiderwick chronicles". It was also done, in some way, in "uru ages beyond myst".

I actually think it could fit very well to uru. Uru is not directly connected to myst, but it's in the same world of myst. It's not long (unlike "myst online uru live"), but it's also interesting (unlike "uru").

But it seems this game will be called "Uru", because everyone want it that way. I'm fine with that. When I'm not talking to new players, or giving some sort of a speech, I will call this game BMU, just because I like that name. If people as me what is that, I'll tell them it's "uru". Is that so hard?

MRU is a computing acronym, Mystdee. It means Most Recently Used.

Does that really matter? Are we going to have a fan advertising drive for an open-source version of a twice-failed game? It makes little sense to think about things from a marketing standpoint.

I'll probably just call it "Uru," since this is what Uru is now. If I need to specify this open source project, OSMOUL's kind of cute, I guess.

Well, if you don't want a marketing point of view, I'll tell you my little secret:

I like the name "beyond myst:uru".

A shock, isn't it? I don't think we should get into it, as you said. If I like it, I like it. I don't have a way to explain it.

I like the two proposals above but let me give you these, mainly because they are ridiculous and stupid. I don't ever expect to see Uru actually named either of these:

Uru Revived: A New Ultimate Story
This one has a great abbreviation: URANUS

Self-Contained Revival Of The Uru Madness
The abbraviation here has a considerable draw back...

How about "Fan Run Online Myst - Uru" or FROM-U?
