Vulpes's Flower Shop

You work for Vulpes as a manager for her business. She owns a flower shop that doesn't have any flowers. You make money by giving ladies makeovers and dressing them up in outfits to appeal to your clients, then send them out on sexy dates. This totally isn't prostitution I swear.

My Demon Girlfriend

While bored in your mom's basement, you accidentally summon a Demon Queen. She ropes you into an adventure of jaywalking, stealing a goat, exposing yourself to a cashier at a J.C.Penny's, and crashing a PTA meeting. You never get to first base with your demon girlfriend either.

Legally Distinct Space Adventure

You're the captain of a prestigious starship whose mission is to explore the mysteries of space. Solve the riddles of ancient precursor civilizations! Bargain with energy beings! Fight guys with forehead ridges! Score with hot green cat-women! All while somehow not being demoted!
To friends long gone, and those I've yet to meet - thank you.

Oh, multiple ideas now? Well, I have a game concept that's a lot more mainstream to put up too.

Seven Days and Seven Knights
A nefarious cult has kidnapped all the children of the kingdom, so the king has sent out his seven best knights to investigate, hunt down the cult, and put an end to them before they sacrifice the children to their false god.

You have seven days to accomplish everything: Traveling around the kingdom, grinding experience and money, searching for clues, and so on. Sleep at the inn a seventh time during the course of your grinding? You get the bad ending.

Each knight has a slightly different appearance, personality, and skill set...however, death is for keeps. The story can go on with any combination of them dying, so long as one of them can rise up and put an end to the wicked child-murdering cult.

Every day you delay something in the kingdom is permanently lost or severely damaged - a worried father farmer tries to take down the cult himself to rescue his daughter despite being armed with nothing but a dirty hoe, the queen falls ill with grief because her only child in her late years is among those captive, the cult poisons an old couple's well because they knew too much...

In the past, I apologized when I was in the right because I was afraid of peer pressure. For this, I apologize.

I must be cruel, but to be kind; that bad may begin, and worse be left behind.

Bird's :: D.N.Q.: Piercarlo and the Non-Qualifyiers - 8
I like the idea of a guy who isn't trying to be the best but being the best he can be.

Bird's :: Big Birds Beaks 6
BURDS :3

Rue's :: OC Deckbuilder - 8
Funny, but trying to make this would be difficult. But, it is a neat concept which is the point of this contest.

Bob the ­Hamster's :: Shopping Game - 10
I love this concept. Love it so much. Game could be an 11 if the mall was vaporwave, I hear the kids these days are down with that greek bust 420 or whatever.

Nathan ­Karr :: Dark Lord Game - 0
Nathan... If you want to try to make something controversial, just make Karrible 2. That's what we really want.

Pepsi ­Ranger :: Pirate Time Warp - 7
A pretty solid story idea.

Mogri :: Actraiser-like RPG - 4
Could be fun, but seems like it would just be "actraiser... but ohr" which is cool but for a concept contest kind of meh.

Willy ­Elektrix's :: Wife for Life Game - 4
I swear this idea's been floating around for ages on slimesalad.

Red­Maverick­Zero :: Kitten in a Box - 6
Yay cats

Spoonweaver's :: Horror RPG - 7
I can see this being similar to Sweet Home on NES if made on the ohr.

TMC :: Concept Contest Game Concept - 3
Clever, but I can't see this as an actual game.

Fenrir-­Lunaris :: Vulpes's Flower Shop - 7
L-lewd

Fenrir-­Lunaris :: My Demon Girlfriend - 10
I can see this being a good VN, possibly with light rpg elements.

Fenrir-­Lunaris :: Legally Distinct Space Adventure - 5
This reminds me of something... but not really sure what.

Nathan Karr's :: Seven Days and Seven Knights - 9
This game would be fun, there's lots of potential for replay value.

DNQ Piercarlo - 8/10
I like the idea of both playing with the usual sports media cliche "scrappy underdog can get first place if he believes in himself" and not being too cynical about it. It's a nice, interesting take on its genre conventions.

Big Birds Beaks - 7/10
Sounds like a fun game. I've actually got an irrational fear of birds, but I think "yet another straightforward and simple RPG, only heroes have [unifying aesthetic]" is a noble thing to put more of in the world always. Particularly if you work them being birds into the mechanics of how the game world is accessed.

Mary Sue CCG - 10/10
I would spend a long time trying to collect the cards to accurately depict variants of my fursona, from the weaboo samurai with pink hair to the bat-winged half-dragon half-fairy weasel with candy powers and an arsenal load of axes!

Market of the Gods - 9/10
Yeah, shopping is probably one of the only parts of an RPG I like as much as creating a character on a character creator screen.

Dark Lord Game - 10/10
Not gonna lie to ya, that's one healthy piece of real estate.
All the fun of building a character with none of the tedium of an open world, and a meaningful, important political message as well.

And if you guys really want a Karrible 2...you may just get it. Only this time I won't half-axe it.


Pirates of the Apocalypse - 8/10
Can never go wrong with pirates! And time travel is cool too. Is it the player choice to decide whether to loot the future or have the pirates get a turn of heart to go back in time, or a linear story where they start out impulsively going for the former only to get character development and ultimately choose the latter? Whatever way, it sounds like the makings of a fun adventure.

ActRaiser but RPG - 7/10
I like RPGs and I like genre bending, but this only sounds mildly special to me.

Wife for Life - 10/10
This...is an idea I had over a decade ago and forgot to write down, basically. I am so glad to see you come up with a more fleshed out version and absolutely adore it! Plus any story that depicts a man and a woman married to each other from the start and makes the audience root for them to stick with each other gets bonus Lawful Good points.
Not often enough we get RPG romances that focus on anything other than two teenagers meeting each other, not interacting, then deciding in the last act of the game that they're in love with each other, then maybe but probably not have a wedding in the credits. (Yes, good RPG romances happen...but not often enough.)

Evil Sorcerer - 7/10
No, Muttley! We can't win fair and square, we have to CHEAT!

Kittens in a Box = 6/10
As cute as kittens can be, I don't see this changing much.

Permadeath Horror Game - 8/10
Permadeath would really add to the horror experience, wouldn't it? It'd be kinda like Sweet Home but I presume having better conveyance of its mechanics and since you don't have a total of 5 heroes, you can actually have them all in the party at once?

TMC's Game Concept Contest Contest Game - 8/10
Made me laugh, not gonna lie. AI dungeon idea sounds like fun.

Vulpes' Flower Shop - 5/10
I'd rather play a game about openly running a brothel, to be frank.

My Demon Girlfriend - 6.66/10
Reminds me way too much of my first two girlfriends and a lot of really crappy anime.

Legally Distinct Space Adventure - 7/10
This sounds like a lot of fun. We don't get many space RPGs do we?

Seven Days and Seven Knights - 9/10
I honestly wish I was a little less confident in this idea so I could rate it a 7. The main inspirations are probably Majora's Mask and Ragnar's chapter of DW4/Sir Colin's chapter of Tales of the New World 1.

Things both of my game ideas have in common: Their message that evil triumphs if good people do nothing or lazy people let evil win. Bad people murder children to further their own agendas. Victory of the heroes is not inevitable because free will is stronger than destiny. Villains can be just as genre-savvy as heroes.

Solid, fun-sounding entries all around.

Bird's :: D.N.Q.: Piercarlo and the Non-Qualifyiers
5/10 Cool idea although I have no idea how it would get turned into a fun game.

Bird's :: Big Birds Beaks
8/10 Birds are cool and saving people from natural disasters seems look a cool and wholesome idea.

Rue's :: OC Deckbuilder
5/10 I kind of like this, but it's also sort of mean-spirited. It's mocking amateur artists.

Bob the ­Hamster's :: Shopping Game
9/10 This seems awesome. I feel like it's probably be done, but obviously it hasn't been done well or we would all be playing it.

Nathan ­Karr :: Dark Lord Game
1/10 I don't like the message.

Pepsi ­Ranger :: Pirate Time Warp
6/10 Cool premise although I'm not really sure what type of game this would be.

Mogri :: Actraiser-like RPG
6/10 Actraiser was good. I'm not sure if this concept seems mind-blowingly original, but it would be a fun game.

Willy ­Elektrix's :: Wife for Life Game
7/10 I would play it. Was I supposed to rate my own?

Idontknow's :: Light-hearted Evil Sorcerer Game
5/10 It doesn't immediately grab me. Maybe I'm just not into parody games.

Red­Maverick­Zero :: Kitten in a Box
4/10 Maybe it would sell a billion copies on mobile, but I wouldn't play it.

Spoonweaver's :: Horror RPG
7/10 This is a solid game concept that has the potential for unique game play.

TMC :: Concept Contest Game Concept
2/10 Stop mocking us! =)

Fenrir-­Lunaris :: Vulpes's Flower Shop
5/10 Hm. I'm really on the fence about this. Tone would be everything. Is it funny or way too exploitative? Hard to say.

Fenrir-­Lunaris :: My Demon Girlfriend

7/10 You go girl.

Fenrir-­Lunaris :: Legally Distinct Space Adventure

4/10 Doesn't seem very original. Maybe I'm missing something here?

Nathan Karr's :: Seven Days and Seven Knights
9/10 This is a fun concept that would really be challenging to design. There would be lots of different approaches to winning this sort of game.

Afterword:
I hope you all had a good time getting feedback on some of your game ideas.
It's always good knowing if the idea you're going to spend months on is something people are going to like.
Just because this contest is over doesn't mean you should stop posting your game ideas and getting feedback on them!
And if you thought this sort of thing wasn't your cup of tea, then another contest involving game concepts is just around the corner!
