I'm a bit stuck on planning my next game project. Given that my last completed project was a one week game, I think I need to aim for a one to two month time scale. However, the ideas I'm come up with are either too ambitious in scope (six month to a year or more in duration), or haven't really captured my imagination. It's quite tricky to think of something simple enough to be completed, yet compelling enough to want to complete.
So I'm trying a few brain-storming sessions this week to see if I can hit upon the kernel of a game idea that captures my fancy. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I could do for some inspiration? I figure I just need the right noun, verb, emotion or idea to spark that bolt of inspiration for a good game idea, but I'm just not sure what.
