After reading Rise of the Videogame Zinesters (great book, by the way) I've been wanting to mess around with free game software and make a few quick and dumb games. I figured it might be interesting to get some ideas for small games from the community here as a springboard. The dumber, the better! I'll set up some sort of blog (tumblr maybe) with links to the games.

A game you can only win by turning off.

You should check out some of the MolyJam stuff to get ideas from, there were some really awesome games made over that weekend.

That would be Diablo 3.

How is stroker not a small game? It's only objective is to stroke. Are you going to be picky here and only accept original ideas?

Exactly. If you're gonna make an HD remake of it, there's no avoiding the plumping of those dicks. Hence, it can't be small under any circumstances.

A vertically scrolling shooter in which you play as a ketchup bottle shooting at various foods. If it makes sense for that food to have ketchup on it you get points and powerups. If it would be gross to have ketchup on it you lose points and powerups.

The final boss is a giant Chicago style hot dog. You have to shoot the gross stuff like sauerkraut and relish off of it layer by layer. Once you cover the hot dog in ketchup a giant hand comes down and grabs the hot dog.
