I created a little generator for coming up with (mostly terrible, but occasionally interesting) game ideas. I then tried making a little game based on a generated prompt about ghosts and beekeeping.

You can try the idea generator online here:

  1. Wow an interesting use case for a custom parser

  2. the first random idea i got was ""A game about fashion and crime, in which you explode whenever you jump."…. make this

  3. "I just learned blender in 5 mins" ha /s

  4. i used the genoraitor and gott somting so good A quirky little game about gardening, where you play as a pyromaniac in an alternate reality.

  5. "A third-person game about totalitarianism, where you play as a gamer inside a dream."

    It gave me this and ngl it actually sounds like something I would play

  6. "A sci-fi horror game that takes place in a bustling sewer, where you play as a wise witch with no soul trying to pay off a debt."

    This doesn't make any sense XD

  7. A whimsical mix between the rhythm and hack-and-slash game genres, where you play as a polite adventurer who will stop at nothing to pay the rent on time.
    This COULD be done. But it would take a very good team and I think it would be easier to make a good game about someone trying to make that game than actually making it.

  8. An intense game about isolation that takes place on the back of a lazy elephant, where you play as a family of forgetful aliens who need to defeat a league of presidents who are addicted to cartoons. HAHAH WTF

  9. 2:54 "A typing game about justice and robot rights"
    -the virtual generator

  10. An open-world puzzle game that takes place in a poorly-decorated sewer, where you play as a polite thief who will stop at nothing to save the world from a league of doctors.

    Amazing

  11. ok, but the ghost beekeeper idea is so cute… er, minus the idea of the spiders begging for mercy

  12. A game about fate that takes place on the back of a nervous giant, where you play as an organization of trolls trying to pay the rent on time. HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

  13. A hack-and-slash game that takes place on a mysterious mountain, where you play as an artificial intelligence who loathes aliens and will stop at nothing to build an armageddon-device.

    A stylish side-view game about punishment, where you play as a tiny queen inside your head.

    A puzzle game about lies, where you play as a group of tax collectors on a street.

  14. A whimsical blend of the role-playing and sandbox game genres, where you play as a duck with a tendency to over-share who will stop at nothing to make the world a better place.

    A tower-defense game about robot rights, where you play as a gang of gigantic aliens in a vibrant labyrinth.
    heh

  15. I think your spiders are impossibly cute. Well done!

  16. Maybe you can make it so the ghost can control animals and then play as them and then get back out

  17. My first idea I got was pretty interesting. "A shooter game about dancing, where you play as a tax collector inside a dumpster." — I don't know how to code… But it seems nice.

  18. "A game about war that takes place in a warehouse, where you play as an organization of lazy witches who desperately want to found a new religion."

    and

    "A mashup of the adventure and stealth game genres, which tells a story of the circle of life and immortality."

    I'd play these 🙂

    Edit: "A shooter game about power and mental illness, with a competitive splitscreen mode." also sounds pretty cool ngl

  21. I got "A frustrating first-person sci-fi game with an emphasis on crafting."

  22. I got this "A game about extraterrestial life set in an alien warehouse, where you play as a gang of wealthy gamers who want to explore the universe."

  23. I got "A mix between the text-adventure and bullet hell game genres, which tells a story of crime and survival." on my first try, which sounds a bit like the Yoko Taro game NieR 😅

  24. I ran the generator and got "A game about aliens that takes place in a popular shopping mall, where you play as a wise witch with a controversial opinion on politics who wants to found a new religion."

    I'm actually going to save this one, it's too good.

  25. A blend of the strategy and stealth game genres, which tells a story of justice and greed. Feels a lot like a game i now of
