This is a question that’s bounced around in my mind for a while.
The thing is, I have something almost ready for testing for both IFComp and ParserComp, but … the titles are horribly generic!
While I’m usually able to find something at the last minute, there’s still that worry, and it also leaves me to wonder:
If someone writes “Andrew’s Big Dragons and Castle Game” and, say, finds the “real” title 3 days into a comp, is there any way to formally change it later? (Probably not during the comp.) E.g. at IFDB? Or renaming it on itch.io? Or is the author stuck with it?
I haven’t had much post-title naming regret. Though part of me thinks it would’ve been op (as kids these days say) to rename Shuffling Around to A Roiling Original, then rename A Roiling Original to Ordeal Reload. Too late now!
