    related to game programming but it isn't

    Yo, just getting an opinion of some people before I begin some mad crazy design doc writing: I've noticed the inherint necessity for people to make some sort of a role playing game. Well, now that the homebrew rpg movement is mainstream (therefore I absolutely refuse to work on one), and the fact that mopping up baby vomit several thousand times at Tops Friendly Markets has made me cynical - to say the least - what would the opinion be on a game that took place in a grocery store? Good? Bad? Evil? Should I shut up? Should I go kill myself for thinking such a thing? The choice is yours, and feedback is a cool thing.

    Thanks for putting up with yet another of my on topic posts.

    Being associated with 2 homebrew rpgs (moving very slowly), I've realized that the rpgs are likely going to be ugly, cliched things if finished, and there is nothing I would like better than to see a game set in the grocery store.

    Actual, that's not true. I just like crazy ideas. Who would the enemies be? Who do you play? Is it an action game where you zoom about isles cleaning up baby vomit ad restocking shelves?

    Sort of, I guess; like, in one scenario, you have to disinfect the toilets, and to do that, you have to do a crappy job at bagging groceries untill the manager yells and belittles you. Once you've been belittled, you are small enough to fight the germs on the rim of the toiled hand to hand.

    how about you play the part of a scientist cloning humans and the enemies are all the people against it!
    Could make a controversial game!

    Or even better, you have to clone genetically bred, killer sheep who have to bite the crowd of protesters and give them all sorts of strange diseases.
