My game revolves around the premises of the number, 78101. You, a protagonist, start off wearing tattered clothes, sitting in a dark room. Next to you lies a book with the title, "78101". When you open the book, you see the author's name, Tom Mai.

 

The book itself is some sort of a diary. It tells of a man who, due to an incident, accidentally killed his family. Being driven to insanity, he desperately tries to find his way out of misery by trying to forget his past, but his past starts haunting him. The last page in the written diary is a form of instructions telling you to find a way out of this building.

 

The game itself is more akin to Escape the Room flash games. Except the room itself is the entire building. Clues hidden throughout the building can all be solved with just the hint, "78101". It can mean almost anything, such as dates, birthdays, security number, safe combinations, etc. But most of them require the use of lexical problem solving in order to continue onwards.

 

I won't spoil the details to you, but the end credits will say this:

 

"Directed by Michael Bay."

Mmh, had never thought of that before. Well, maybe a game about growing a colony of Staphylococcus and having them battle against increasing powerful white blood cells. I'm thinking a 3D-based, abstract tactical management kind of game, in a procedural, organic environment. The back story is obvious, you are a poor unicellular life form ingested by someone, struggling to survive in this harsh habitat. After a few hours of disorganized chaos (and exponential growth) a leader emerges from the colony, and rallies his companions to fight against the oppressor.
 
I'm sorry. I have no imagination. sleep.png

Hmm...

A dark game, not gritty, not neccesariously in the horror genra, but just offputting, about a man who keeps struggling against a very terrible luck, carring his zippo lighter which, for some reason, makes a flame appear wherever it was 5 seconds ago rather than were it is when it is lit.

it would have a Lovecraftian setting.  The entire game would be jumping puzzles with increasing difficulty, as you try climb a mysterious mountain.  If you finally reach the top, you get ripped to shreds and die.  Game over.

I'm Progm from the Alpha Unit. A species called the DES has invaded our solar system. I'm currently stuck in an underground labyrinth that seemed to be built millennia ago. While I explore its secrets and a way out, my unit was tasked with a kamikaze mission. Bomb the enemy's galaxy-class ship (if it can be called that) and slow their advance. I hope my unit --anyone from my unit-- is still alive.

I am a man who hodges all of his-  Oh wait, I am not Hodgman.

 

My name is Q, and the number ? has caused an Apocalypse-  Oh, I am not ApochPiQ either.

 

They call me Tom.  I ride slopes.  I am Tom the Sloper.  Oh, oops.

 

My street name is rip-off.  I rip the tags off mattresses-  Err.

 

My brother, Bob, has been kidnapped.  As I spring into action I-

 

My name is Washu, and I washu away all phantoms with my SiCrane.

 

The world has succumbed to the deadly Bacterius called Kylotan.  Only the power of sunandshadow and the wand of Serapth combined can cleanse the Earth.  But don’t worry, you have infinite continues, so, if you fail, you can always try mhagain.

 

Catch all the Álvaro beans in the bucket!  But watch out for falling Aardvajk’s and their spiny backs!

 

1,024 beams of light are headed for Tokyo from a pulsar!  Position your mirrors correctly and send them all towards an invading alien planet called Kim-Fat to destroy it.  But if you position them wrong you will be destroyed instead!  (In case no one got the reference to the member name, I am referencing my coworker, Lightness1024).

Onward and advance the kingdom... for space is the capacious frontier. You are a bundle of gases. fly, float and flee through dangerous territory as you out wit your arch enemy as he tries to dissolve you. For nothing can 'contain' you that you cannot break out of. And the princess need saving. But soft, what light through yonder 'window' breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Such calamity to ever put these two together. Can you defuse the situation before you diffuse into oblivion?

Controls:
Hold Space to hold together molecular cohesion and draw in surrounding gases. When max power is reached, release to unleash the power that is within in one almighty explosion... end of game. End of computer. Watch the smoke rise as the story begins afresh.

Hint:  The L in my name stands for “Lost”.  If you want to know the rest, brush up on Latin.

"Lost I am breathing." Makes sense. Or possibly even "lost I am inspired."

 

EDIT: And with respect to the OP, I'm pretty sure everyone can figure one out for me without trying too hard.

In my game you have a growing team of programmers who create software for you, but you have to keep them happy. If you don't pay them enough, dont give them interesting problems, or keep changing project requirements on them, then they are less happy. Have too many unhappy programmers and they turn on you and mess with your system before quitting and go work for you competitors.

Being German for 'man', the game 'Mensch.' is set in a world where new races of humanity are emerging with varied powers that give them an edge over regular old mankind, and with all believing they have the right-of-rule over those they deem inferior, and make war with other 'elevated' races. You, the player, struggle to help your small community survive (or thrive), in the depopulated wastelands of a war-torn world.

 

I'd say RPG with some RTS elements (ie, managing resources, etc).

 

Also, I'd like to thank the Death Gate Cycle for both my name and the concept :p

Wow. I started to play with this idea thinking, "Oh this will be amusing, I never though of my username as a title before."  Some 3 hours of obsessive activity later, I seem to have accidentally created a serious concept rather than a humorous forum game response. blink.png  Or at least, half a serious concept; needs more development of plot, character, everything.  But it's quite a compelling little kernel of an idea.

You genetically engineer fruits.

 

The story is about how you once crossbreeded a watermelon and a lime, and made a refreshing drink out of it.
