    The name of the game

    I'm a game developer from Brazil and I'm making a game that the player must feed zombies like in a fast-food service of brains. We are working on the name of the game and the best idea so far is to make a parody of the tv show "The Walking Dead". Our two options are: "The Hungry Dead" and "The Starving Dead". I personally like more the last one, but I fear that the connotation of using "starving" could be a bad thing, like, the dead that died because they didn't have food. But I don't know if I'm overthinking this. Do you understand that is just the dead that wake up and are very, very hungry (starving)?
    If it's not politically incorrect, which one you like most? There are any other suggestion?
    Thanks!!

    Re: The name of the game

    Perhaps use something like 'The Ravenous Dead'. That would avoid any PC connotations with 'starving', but still convey the sense of insatiable hunger that zombies have.

    Another synonym that might work would be 'The Insatiable Dead.'

    That's a great suggestion. I think it works well in BrE too.

    Re: The name of the game

    Thanks for the suggestions! The thing that I like most about using "Starving" is the sound. It clearly creates a reference to "Walking" from "The Walking Dead". I found the suggestion more fit to the idea of the game, but it's a little bit hard to be pronounced. Don't you think?
