are (we are) is ogame

ogame = are (verb "to be"/"to exist" - we are - 1st person plural) (some things Google found for "ogame": a very common term; OGame is a German, real time, multiplayer, text-based, space-war themed online browser game - an overwhelming search result; user name; a last name that can be Japanese)

Word derivation for "are" (we are) (to exist) :
Basque = gara, Finnish = olemme
Miresua = ogame

In my opinion this is an odd looking word, but "ogame" is the letter combination that makes the best sense. The first letter is the first letter from the Finnish word. The second letter is the first letter from the Basque word. The last two letters are the verb conjugation ending (and both are doubled letters) from the Finnish word. The third letter is the vowel from the Basque word.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for "are (we are)" is now "orame".
