"Nailing Jelly To A Tree"

In almost every game you can change the world, save the world, or at least achieve some sort of positive outcome. In this compo, you are engaged in a futile exercise. Maybe you're taking on an immortal enemy. Maybe you're using sandbags to stem the tide of a rising flood. Maybe you're bailing water out of a leaky boat, and the leak keeps getting bigger. Maybe you're trying to save the life of a patient with multiple organ failure. Whatever you're trying to do, it won't work.
Tetris is an example of an exercise in futility. But simply producing a score-attack game with no ending will not fully express the theme of the compo. It would have to be Tetris where every block is a complex, 12-square puzzle piece, which doesn't fit together with the other ones.
This. Definitely, definitely, this. I like this idea more than any of the other suggestions given so far. A "Futile Games Compo"

Good job, Melly. I hope a single post can hold them all.

Can't. I'll use 2.

I'm not sure I said that... o.o

I'll see what I can do, but no promises on that front.

A compo about games with screwed up physics.

Either games where you can change the laws of physics to solve puzzles or a game where the laws of physics are completely different and the player will have to find out how stuff works and adpat to it in order to win the game.
