Thanks for this - it really helped me for LD41
Genre Mashup Generator
A downloadable tool for Windows
Prompted by the themes of Ludum Dare 41, here's a quick tool to get you started on weird and wonderful side projects, breaking traditional standards by smashing them together haphazardly.
Use Spacebar (or click the mouse) to generate a new genre mashup.
If you find something you like, hit Enter to save it to a text file of favourites.
Open the attached text file and you can add extra genres as you see fit, or remove things if you've gotten sick of making platformers and the like.
(Since this was quickly put together it'll save automatically to local data for now, but I'll try and update with something more robust if I have time later)
Click download now to get access to the following files:
Log in with itch.io to leave a comment.
Next time, you should mark the upload as for Windows or something so people can download on the itch app if they have one.
Simple, quirky, and effective :)
I've added quite a bit to my list, including themes, and gameplay mechanics: 'though I understand it's not in the true nature of a 'Genre' generator, I've found it to be a perfect little tool for early stage inspiration.
