Most of them are lousy, a few are amazing. And I have very little skill at differentiating them.
My previous idea for 4E4 (A Pirates / robots / zombies RTS game), had several problems
- It was going to be very difficult to make
- Similarity to other potential entries
- Not easy enough to balance / make it enjoyable and amusing.
Today (well, maybe yesterday or the day before), I had another idea. This one is much better, much more original, and made me laugh just thinking about it (which is not necessarily a good sign).
*if* I can pull it off (and this is a big "If"), then it will be hugely entertaining. And seems fairly achievable at the moment. But then perhaps I'm barking mad (hint: yes).
