I need game ideas. Casual games.

The only ones I can think of at the moment are magnum opuses.

I need something simple... think Run Rabbit. But it can't be Run Squirrel or Run Cat or anything. Although I am much tempted. :cry:

I'll give a 5% royalty if I implement your concept! :S

So any ideas? :annoyed:

Or failing that, tell me of any games you are or will be working on yourself, for inspiration!

Silly ideas are welcome too. :(

Can it be an existing concept? Because tower defence games are really much fun to play while they're simple to program. Maybe transform the concept a bit, make it Castle Defence or something and with multiple paths from multiple sides.

Another idea of a game I would like to play is controlling a 3D dinosaur running through a big forest/field (seemingly infinite landscape in general) having to hunt other dinosaurs (and watch out for their defense, and of course avoid being hunted by the even bigger ones).

how about some sort of painting game. like, you draw something, and it has an effect on the game world some how. Like Okami, but on a budget.

I feel ashamed to say, but i havent actually gotten round to download run rabbit yet. I have an essay to write and im worried itll never get done.

Tower defence is certainly more fun than I expected. It has potential!

Rejected out of spite no doubt.

How about a quick game where you are a small character that uses zip-line to get through puzzle type levels while avoiding big lights or patrolling enemies.

storyline.... hes in prison and must escape

JAIL BREAKER.... THE GREATER ESCAPE...

I once had an idea of a game where you control a paddle that reflects a ball that mustn`t touch you side of the screen and play agains the cpu which also controls a paddle.

But I thought it was a stupid idea, noone would play such crap...

Make a game in which you are an atom (atoms are relatively simple entities [NOT]).
You are an atom and you bond with other atoms, you get more protons, neutrons and electrons.
You travel through the world of the angstroms (the very small units of length).
You can become large and unstable and experience radioactive decay.
Magnetic fields can push you around.
BE CREATIVE.
Goal: Be come U-238 and blow shit up!

Enjoy...

What about one with invisible platforms? Where you are able to perceive more of your world as you progress. Or perhaps a simple thing where you have to build up virtues rather than collect coins and stuff (Justice cookies! lol). Is this simple? I've been doing philosophy homework too long....
