Perhaps Angrily Jumping Doodle Birds? –  Kevin Y Feb 15 '11 at 17:27

I think Game Dev Story was written just to confuse those of us who read gaming.stackexchange.com and gamedev.stackexchange.com! –  Wikwocket Feb 15 '11 at 18:45

I was about to come and angrily vote to close. I'm trying hard to incorporate birds into the post, but that would be jumping too far. As for doodle, I just can't do it. –  Mechko Feb 20 '11 at 5:10

I love Mushroom Life games too! –  Kevin Y Feb 15 '11 at 17:27
    
I have no objection to you making your answers CW, but I would suggest you not start answers out as CW. There have been a number of times I've written answers and made them CW, only to be the sole contributor. –  tzenes Feb 15 '11 at 17:28
    
+1: Remember, the popularity of the combinations still depend on the randomly assigned "Popularity Rating" so if you make a game from a good (but unpopular) combination you're not going to sell well. –  Satanicpuppy Feb 15 '11 at 17:35
    
@tzenes: That's a good point. I suppose I can always just make things CW in the future either by triggering the edit threshold or marking them when I see tons of comments about alterations. –  Shaun Feb 15 '11 at 18:00
    
@tzenes: CW-ifying an answer also enables low-rep users to make edits, which is good if you want to encourage collaboration. –  Brant Feb 15 '11 at 19:48
