So, you know that game, Mad Libs? Lately, I’ve started doing something very similar to get my game ideas.
Here’s an enticing screenshot from the last game I started with this format and input from tacospice. It’s not yet finished:
The youthful minister she references is, in fact, Titan, one of Jupiter's moons.

… and then zaniness ensues when the Jolly Borg come to spelunk the world!

Here’s what I need for my MiniLD game:

authority figures (such as “police”)
adjective x 6
event
location
noun x 4
pluralism (such as: bunch, group, herd, gaggle, flock… )
proper noun x 2
title
verb x 3

[via IRC: awsumpwner27 “accidentally” submitted vitriol, sorceress submitted bouncers and constellation, and Bcadren submitted Congress after that, so not sure if I can use it but I’ll try]

[Update: DONE! Woohoo! Thanks Jacob123, drnick, oranebeast, Pitzik4, awsumpwner27, sorceress and Bcadren!]

It‘d be totally was awesome if that a bunch of you swooped in and each contributed several of these in the comments until there‘s were none left. The fate of my game is was in your hands, Ludum Dare! 😀
Thanks!!!
