The basic idea is to take the "idea" of the person above you, and post your game development plan for such a game, then post your own "idea". The aim is to make your game development plan the worst possible.

For example, a game about space (taking the concept very loosely!) could be an educational game about how astronauts communicate between Space and Earth, consisting of nothing more than ensuring your ship's communication systems are well-maintained and that the signal is clear.

Well, then!

What's your idea for a game about robots?

A game about robots??? I've got a great idea!

The goal is to build the most effective robot possible by flipping through a catalog of machine parts, copying down the serial numbers for each part, and calculating the cost. And that's all.

Who's got an idea for a dinosaur game? :D

okay not sure if I entirely get it but I'm gonna give it a shot...

My game about robots would consist of finding the right kind of stuff to polish your metal, drinking lots of oil and finding an outlet to recharge. It would be a challenging survival game where you have to manage all 3 resources. But, the game will only have one level--a small, caved-in factory. It also will be in early access for 30 years and cost 29.99 plus a 14.99 monthly fee.

my idea..... make a game about.....um, whales?

Your mission in my game is to write a program in Assembly that generates a random word to fill the phrase of "*insert random word*" computers.

The game about whales would utilize the wonders of the open, empty, endless sea where you have to sing whale songs, without being able to hear what is sung. All songs must be pitch-perfect. The game will run on 4k displays at 120 fps, but there is nothing to see beyond the water refracting the sunlight.

Now for a game about global warming?

A game about global warming, eh?

Well, I call it Polar Bear Counter! It's a real-time simulator of how global warming affects the habitat of polar bears, and you get to measure progress by watching your screen slowly fill up with the dead bodies of cute, fuzzy, polar bears! How fun!

How about a game about bug catching?

How about a game where you play as an alcoholic trying to drink more than everyone else at the party, but you die from alcohol poisoning.

Hmm how about a game about cats?

Oh, oh, I've got this.

The game is called "I Screwed Up". As a junior electrician, your character's job is to find their way through a house to deliver the right type of lightbulb to their boss. Your character forgot his flashlight, though, so you'll have to navigate with a completely black screen. Have fun!

This game will be called GHOST.SPOOKS, and the object of the game is to count how many times the word "ghost" shows up on the webpage. Guess wrong, and you'll be cursed with reading boring news articles for all of eternity~

Come play Making Sandwiches With What Is Before You. Everything, and yes we mean everything must be made/conjured using magic. Right off the bat, you find yourself in a bind. A customer orders a pepperoni and mushroom on rye sandwich. Your mushroom henchman looks at you with a tear in his eye...

Your play a male dwarf you tries to impress a female orc, you must outlift orcs while painted green and must do so fast enough because sweating destroys your disguise while going slow makes you lose. The game gets harder and harder until you lose.
