I am kinda inspired by this cover:


Hopefully I will be able to throw something together despite the late start. Expect lots of Latin. Maybe it will be a game entirely about writing stupendously long-winded and convoluted legal documents in Latin. I might change my mind and use a different cover/case as inspiration after throwing together a prototype, so no promises.

"23 Games" will just have to be a flagrant lie unless I can come up with 23 mini games.

edit: speaking of the Magna Farta (lololol), I did not realize toilet humor was so advanced in 17th century England: http://books.google.ca/books?id=Ow-UfRxHOH4C&pg=PA9&lpg=PA9&dq=oliver+cromwell+magna+farta&source=bl&ots=ZyDAKXqGGd&sig=-vZ68gC6kakcy3SSUDOXMGCMDeE&hl=en&ei=yk83TNq6DMOeON-tuegF&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=6&ved=0CDMQ6AEwBQ#v=onepage&q&f=false

Toilet humor predates toilets.
Also, I hope this game teaches me latin.

Humanity's ability to be insulting to everyone around them practically predates humanity itself.

Also, for the 23 games, you can have some stuff like they did once when they pretty much blatantly lied. Change a few colors, have one game be using a pen, another a feather, another a typewritter, and all still be the same fucking game.

I have no plans of getting this done by the compo end, but believe it or not, I'm making a game that I want more or less to work like this concept, that will most likely actually be called "Magna Carta" and involve feudal lords, vaguely English-sounding royalty, and Latin.
