This game idea generator is gold

The talk of our office chat room this morning has undoubtedly been Orteil's Game Idea Generator -- a tool that's exactly what it sounds like but no less delightful. You should try it out.

Some of my favorites so far:

  • A simulation game where you interrogate railroads but everything you touch explodes.
  • A role-playing game where you dress up insects with love.
  • An FPS where you punch fashion designers in Europe.
  • An online game where you listen to babies and you can erect walls at will.
  • A strategy game where you ostracize witches in outer space.

As esoteric as some of the concepts are, I can genuinely see this tool serving as a starting point for production on a real game. Some slight tweaks to the ideas might be in order, though.
