Meet (and name) the Star of FishMoto!

Meet the star of FishMoto!  He/She doesn’t have a name yet (we’ll get to that later), but I can give you a few details.  Yes, it’s a catfish — but not just any catfish, it’s an electric catfish!  Yes, such a thing exists!  You won’t be doing much swimming in FishMoto, though — this cute and courageous hero is hooked into a custom built motorbike controlled by electric impulses (how convenient!).  Using this motorbike, you’ll be venturing beyond the waters to traverse treacherous terrain.

Now, back to the name — I have no idea what to call this cute, finned fellow.  I don’t even know what gender (if any) it is.  I thought it’d be fun to take name suggestions from the community, so you guys can suggest names in the comments of this post!  If I choose your suggested name, you’ll win a mention in the credits and a promo code for the game!  It doesn’t matter what gender the name implies (if any).  There aren’t really any rules — just know I obviously won’t pick anything that infringes on existing copyrights or is obscene.  With all that being said, have at it!

    I think you should it Po. I think it’d be a girl, but it doesn’t matter, I suppose.

    Good luck!

    You should name your fishy Lumen because if your catfish is electric then it might have luminance :)

    Buzz or Zzzippy, to celebrate his special powers.

    Or, there’s always “Sushi”… especially given how much he’s flopping around after I break the bowl.
