Good day everyone!
As we mentioned in last months post [POLL] The Next Game Jam & Considering Adding an IF Category we need to come up with a new name for the game jam and we figured it would be fun to make a bit of a competition out of it. Its not much but we are offering a $20 prize to whoever comes up with the name we end up choosing.
To enter either reply to this post with your idea or @Weight_Gaming on twitter with the hash tag #FatFortnightRename.
To receive the reward the user must have a valid PayPal we can send the money to. In the event multiple users make the same suggestion and that suggestion is picked, the winner will be who ever posted the suggestion first. Also, please only reply name suggestions to this thread.
I look forward to seeing what this community can come up with!
Gain Jam, boom has a 20 character limit so this is filler
Can we suggest more than 1? I’ll start with only 1 to be fair.

Multiple Suggestions can be made. We ask that you just do not go crazy with it.
I’m going to have to second Gain Jam, though I think Cakecatboy suggested that in the first thread almost instantly.

Packing on the Pounds
ah, I’m not sure if I get to have first dibs on the idea “gain jam” since I did post it in the last thread, not technically the contest one, so I’ll just quote my other ideas here:
Battle of the Bellies
War of the Waists
thanks for the opportunity guys! I won’t be upset if you stick to the rules and give the credit to the first one to mention it in-thread!
Its not all too clever but heres my recommendation
The Exquisite Expansion Game Jam
Gaining Game Challenge
Gains Done Quick
Hard to come up with a name that is open to different types of WG games - only so many options available, but there’s some nice ideas already.
Maybe not the most original, but how about Weight Jam?

The Stuff of Game stuff
The website weight up
The Fat free for all
The BIG Gain.

I’ll reiterate what I said previously, and I know I’m not the first one to bring up the suggestion. Neither in this thread nor the previous.
It’s a shoe-in. Succinct, clear, simple, straightforward and on-brand.
With extra emphasis on the “on-brand” part. Makes it easily identifiable by people who are part of the forum and easily traceable for people who want to know the source, by which I mean both the creator of the game as much as the forums themselves. And considering discoverability is what drove a lot of people into this forum to begin with… I’d say it’s a perfect fit.
If that, for some reason, is too short, perhaps WeightGaming’s Gain Jam. It might be very on the nose, very obvious, but I think that’s why it works.
About the reward for picking the “winning name”, and I know it’s probably non’a my fucking business, I’d much rather that was destined to other parts of the forum. Hell, perhaps increasing the prize for the next jam.
I already know what’s going to win, but screw it. I’ll put my tattered hat in the ring.
Bountiful Bellies Game Jam
Munchie Game Development (bad name I know)
