So, the theme is “You Are A Monster”. A very cliched and specific theme, also spoils many possible twists one can make. My advice for everyone is not to think the theme too hard — people are already shared their ideas and most of them are a simple, easy-to-grasp ideas with good potential.

I thought for some time and came out with my own idea.

Here is the story: a character make a deal with the devil and gained ability to collect something. The devil allows the character to search the object the character truly desires in a trial of some sort.

From the story, you know where I will implement the theme: a Faustian plot point, deal with the devil makes you a monster. The gameplay can be implemented as either roguelike, dungeon crawling, or “Binding of Isaac”-like game I’ve attempted in a previous game jam.

I’m a lazy person and tired from a week of programming another game, so I’ll either make the idea or watch some anime. I’ve never finished my previous LD run, too, and I’m afraid I’ll not finish this one if I attempted it.
