Annnnd,

Shackled Self, by Raffaele Manzo, using lust and chains, makes the ninth entry.

So this is the twenty-four hour "go" signal, using the time signature of this post.

I want to play Nicotine Girls and Camwhores back to back.

I hadn't heard of this contest before and I was inspired by this month's word choices.

Using "lust" and "chains" I had intended to write an RPG about how our petty addictions get in the way of accomplishing our goals.

I set aside time to write it on Saturday, but then I decided to play board games with friends all day. I might have written it on Sunday, but Jonah Hex had been sitting on my shelf from Netflix for like a week. Monday I planned to get crackin', but spent most of my day surfing the internet. On Tuesday I just had to play some new Rock Band downloads...

Maybe I'll write that game about addictions for the next one, if the terms sync up.

But then again, my WoW druid still needs some gear...

Thanks for the love for Camwhores! I kept stopping while I was working on it and thinking, "I can't believe I am writing this." It was an interesting change of pace.

"Chains" clearly was an attention-getter this time.

You know what would be cool, sometime, is a "Ronnies retrospective" comp (or just game jam).  Take the top submission-getting term from each round so far.  Mash them together.  Pick three out of the six.

(( girlfriend fight dragon skull wings chains ))

Seriously, doesn't that just drip with potential?

Also, Doug, I know exactly what you mean.  The only reason I was able to enter this month is that I had bigger things to slack off from. "I need to do my taxes!" I said.  "And update Deathbird Black!  So instead I'm going to let myself get distracted by inspiration."  If it weren't for productive procrastination, I'd never get anything done.

I had a thought of "The Lust Amazon: More Pulp! More Porn! More Purple!" the only question was whether it was about a B-movie company making pulp porn films, or an actual pulp porn fantasy game...

Hi everyone,

I am looking at a particularly difficult round of Ronnies to judge, and I think that I won't be posting my conclusions until Monday. Until then, though, please feel free to start threads to discuss the games as you will.

It's interesting how much of the conversation on this thread is "I was going to make this game, but ..." Did this particular set of terms lend itself to a lot of ideas that were hard to execute in 24 hours, or were a lot of people simply busy this weekend?

My personal unfinished idea was Welfare Queens (using chains and queen), a cyberpunk game about white collar corporate executives who escape the burdens of their jobs by spending their weekends in a virtual reality world were they are poor women living on public assistance. (I wanted it to be a satire of the Randian tea party crowd and pull-yourself-up feel-bad-to-feel-good movies like Precious.)
