Theme ideas

There are an interesting set of themes, prompting me to do an idea dump. It’s the closest I am going to get to doing any real preparation for this weekend.

  • Colonize – You are a strain of bacteria, trying to spread to nearby jars of mayonnaise. Call the game “Colonnaise”.
  • End of the World – I have been playing a lot of Pharaoh lately. Maybe a level of a city-builing sim, where instead of trying to construct vast monuments, you are collecting resources to make the artifact that brings about the apocalypse?
  • Fortress – Fighting game with badly-animated anthropomorphic castles beating the turrets off each other. Or maybe a clone of a game I vaguely remember from my youth, where you flew a helicopter to drop off troops onto a side-scrolling battlefield so that they can assault the enemy’s fortress.

    I really like your take on End of the World as trying to cause the end of the world, rather than already having witnessed it. I’ll keep that in mind…
