I think that this would be a better place for discussion, so that the Rules thread won't get cluttered with rules-unrelated talking.

You can make this sticky.

I wouldn't be worried about an hour here or there. The whole idea of the compo is to just go out there and make a game, so I don't think anyone will care.

I wasn't sure if I should make a separate thread for this or just post here, but here goes.

I have a ton of awesome ideas that I'm never going to have time to make, so if you are uninspired but want to make a game feel free to steal one of these.

Also, I apologize in advance for some of the offensive content, the adult/education has permanently scarred my ability to come up with unoffensive games.  Well, hello there! Hand Shake Right

Ideas:
  • Fake Soccer Injury: The Video Game - The game begins with your player getting checked and going into a ragdoll state. You have to control the ragdoll to make the most painful looking injury possible.
  • Breast Volleyball - A satire of DoA volleyball, or just a perverse game. The arrow keys control the player, AWSD control your giant breasts which rotate and flail wildly. You can only hit the ball with your breasts.
  • Buzkashi: The Video Game - A real variation on Polo played in East-Asia using a headless goat carcass. First you have to kill a goat, then you have to win the match.
  • The Marathon - QWOP meets desert bus. You control your character's right and left legs, you must run consistently for the actual amount of time it would take to complete a marathon.
  • Little League Dads - A fighting game. Build your rage while watching the little league game, once your rage/booze meter is full, pick a fight with another dad. Fight to the death.
  • Cyborg Paralympics - Manage a team of disabled athletes. As they win events, you can buy more and more advanced prosthetics, eventually giving them rocket legs/chairs/arms and other crazy bodymods.
  • Benched - Interactive novel/jrpg formula. You play the worst athlete on the team, you must successfully navigate through conversation trees with the coach to get played. You win when you get off the bench and into the game.
  • Zombie Bobsled - Compete in a bobsled match during the zombie apocalypse. Hitting zombies will slow your momentum, avoid them at all costs.
  • Pregnant Boxing - 'nuff said
  • Racecar Sponsor: The Video Game - get as many ads and endorsement deals on your teams car as possible. It doesn't matter if you win, you just gotta make a lot of money.
  • Zamboni Racer - Race to clean the ice fastest. Score counts both time and accuracy/coverage.
  • Bullfighting/Rodeo Game where you play the bull - I haven't completely though this one through....
  • Chinese Gymnast Olympic Coach: The Video Game - Recruit and train underage athletes. You must balance pressures from the government, the athlete's skill, and their morale. Something terrible happens if you lose.

Again, I encourage stealing any of these ideas. It would be nice if you credit me if/when the game gets done, but I won't be upset if you don't.

I actually Google'd that for you, and it seems like the answer varies from person to person.

It does if you use REAL PEOPLE!

Add: and the players are the supercomputers who rule the pieces's dystopian future.

I think that counts as a 'mind sport' which is kind of not a sport. Things that involve physical contact (usually) and promote physical fitness over mental fitness are sports. Just have the chess pieces be sweaty men grappling each other and you should be fine.

You guys need to stop worrying about the rules and start making games. Remember this is a TIGCompo, and nobody cares about the rules. If Rom Check Fail can win the random name generator compo without actually using the random name generator then I don't think people will care about someone starting seven minutes early, or if chess is a sport or not.

Just make games and be merry.  Beer!

That means none of us are actually making sports games!  Shocked
what are we doing with ourselves O GAHD
