Two-Word Game Pitches



  • Haight-Ashbury
  • I'm currently working on:

    Icelandic Mystisism.
    Inspiration drawn from Sigur Ros' excellent "Heima" dvd. Check it out on youtube, it is beautiful.
  • Elderly romance.

    Hollow children.
    Pretty cannibals.
    Conscientious totalitarianism.
    Rabid devotions.
    Eternal daylight.
    Better mousetraps.
    Abandoned nests.
    Unrequited hatreds.
  • I intended it as an ejaculatory exclamation for emphasis; take that how you will. I know I'm not going to call you out for badwrongfun...
  • The one game I've written:
    Wacky Highschool

    For games I've had ideas to write:
    Terror Form
    Cute Wars
    Binding Ties
    Craft Works
    Apocalypse Ponies
    Bro Hunters
    Scaly Acres
    Downcountry Baladeers
    Digital Mutations
    Folded Relaity
  • Zen Executioners
    Existential Orangutan
  • Trek Wars
    Star Star
    Log Jamming
    Supersonic Mice
    Horned Dolphins
    Inactive Dice
    Quijibo Underworld
    Cartoon Fade
    Veil O'Rama
    Veal Obama
    Space Broskis
  • Apocalypse Ponies and Inactive Dice strike my fancy. The first got me on a tanget... Horsemen of the Apocalypse: the Early Years. The second I imagine as a story telling game where the dice are a terribly powerful and dangerous thing. You are sort of safe if you don't touch your dice, but events do escalate and you might be pushed to get that little extra and tempt fate.

    More "mechanical stuff" ideas:

    Scene Randomizer
    Emotional Hex-Map
    Reaction Spinner
    Pog Resolution
    Card Substitution
    Character Auction
    Scene Auction
    Foreshadowing Points

    I actually sorta did this. I played a Were-Vulture in an "every shapeshifter you can think of" White Wolf game. His theme was entropy, decay, and proper, natural death. He didn't go around stabbing people; he went around turning off life support machines. And gently encouraging chaos, where those fated for death would more quickly find it. Zen, right? It was a fun game.

    * This was a result I got on the Seventh Sanctum "Highly-Merchandisable Cartoon Titles" (or something or other) and thought it was too funny to not include here.

    Man, what would a game with Pog Resolution even be about? I still have my pogs, not kidding. Those fuckers were hard-won, and I know the market will bounce back someday.

    sigh. I wish I'd had the knowledge and the access to have spent my obsessive collecting as a child on something actually useful, like Magic cards.

  • Oh, great, this thread is a blast (from the past) ; but that's a delight to scroll up and down between ideas.
    Monster Chefs
    incidentally, it's close from an idea I had a few months ago.
    Maybe the best incentive to dive into and start writing the game.

    LOL. Using the World of Milkness system, for sure.

    Indeed. Or perhaps a hack of Lactose World for a more contemporary feel.

  • You might try using Sorcerer with the Dictionary of Moo supplement.

  • Uncertain parenthood

  • Texas Legislature

    A wonderful pair of horror games. I think Look Down! is exactly the soul-annihilating-game-of-existential-dread-whose-central-premise-is-a-Wile-E.-Coyote-pratfall that I've been looking for.

    All kidding aside, this would work really well using the INSPECTRES rules.
