Last month's game design challenge from GameCareerGuide.com was all about the iPad, and they were asking for ideas that would make a great game for the device. I wasn't even planning to join the iPad hype-train, but while doodling about during my break -- a day before the deadline -- I just stumbled on an idea of square heads you can attach on 'empty' bodies. So for the entire 30-minute or so break, I just thought about how funny it is attaching and removing heads like Lego pieces, with the bodies struggling for freedom from the player's godly, sausage fingers.
Nothing concrete on the gameplay, admittedly, but maybe this could work on a Lemmings- or Lost Vikings-type of games, where you have to switch heads to complete a level. Or something.
Anyway, this rush-job piqued gamecareerguide's interest enough to include this in their Honorable Mentions list.

They've posted another challenge this week -- hey, maybe YOU guys can post your ideas as well!
