  • memory
  • what I had for breakfast
  • a secret
  • pen pals
  • if on a winter's night a traveler (interesting title of an italo calvino book)
  • labyrinth
  • mirrors
  • riding in the back seat of a car
  • daydream on a hot day
  • high five
these are just a few ideas, and I don't know how good they are, but I hope it gets the ball rolling! feel free to reply to this comment with your own ideas :)

Here are some ideas as well!

  • experiment
  • infection
  • the DMV
  • Very Important.
  • wrestling
  • radio silence
  • snack run
  • giant
  • preformance

ahh "radio silence" is very good

Hmm, let's see!

  • Alien abduction
  • Surrealism
  • ... and we never looked back
  • Poetry
  • Repetition, repetition, repetition
  • Meta
  • oddly unremarkable
  • alter ego
  • rhubarb
These are a little nonsensical, but sometimes nonsensical prompts produce some good stuff! Looking forward to more suggestions if anyone has them. I have a few favourites from you guys' lists myself.

I like the idea of "oddly unremarkable" a lot

Thank you! I think we've got some winners here.

Where would we advertise an event like this? Twitter?

I have no idea. Twitter would be one way, is there a way to announce a game jam via itch.io itself?

somehow I missed these recent posts! nice theme suggestions :) I also like "oddly unremarkable"

we can announce the jam on twitter for sure, but we can also host the jam on itch.io and I think we can post in the general itch.io forum

why don't we organize a jam for the last week of next month (April)?

Ayy, that's a great idea. :> Last week of April sits well with me! I don't have much of a social media presence but I'll help with advertising as best I can.

I know that there are some devs on mastodon so when the time comes I'll also try getting the word out there

sounds like a plan! thank you both :) I will set up the jam soon. anyone have a preference on what theme we pick from the list?

I took my favorite 2 from each list in no particular order then rolled a regular die twice and I got a 3, which is "... and we never looked back", and I got a 2 which is "riding in the back seat of a car", so those are my picks
