From the Crap Pile
The Ragged: Quest for Puppeteer's Thread
In a world of elemental super powers, you have the classic four elements of earth, fire, water, and wind. Then you have not-so-classic elements like light and electricity. Then you have maybe off-shoot elements like ice and shadow. Then you have things that just don't fit like wood and metal. All of which have some really cool magic effects, so we allow them into the game.
Then we have things like "string." Guess which element the main character is? In a rather depressing cut scene, the reincarnation of the hero, when given the choice of elemental spheres, picks a ball of yarn from his grandmother's sewing basket.
Now we have the main villian. Anyone who's read Poor Predictable Rock knows its stupid limiting yourself to only one element. So the Big Bad, who we'll call the Supreme Chancillor of the Ministry of Magic, gathers together all the elemental treasures from the temples and universities. For... "maintenance." During the "maintenance ceremony," the Chancillor uses his "rock" to bash "Mr. Scissors" over the head, steal his item and use it on "Princess Paper" and down the line until he had control of all elemental treasures, and theoretically all elements.
Of course there's no temple devoted to "string." String's a stupid element. A stupid element the main character has.
Now most of the raw magic in the kingdom is going into either into the Magic "stormtroopers" or into a "farmboy" of a tailor. Imagine the suprise when their once "best" spell, tying people's shoelaces together, manages to "bootstrap" a thug across the room. In a curtain-flapping, poltergist-esque display of flying carpets, etc., the once androgynous tailor becomes wrapped in bandages and a badass long coat that beat off all his old bullies for him. (What can I say, we're going for "gender neutral heroic mime/mummy).
Then the wise old astrologer comes in with a glove of pure void. With it, he'll be able to handle any elemental treasure without it affecting his alignment. (No points for guessing who has the other one). The elder begs that he use his newfound power to retrieve the elemental treasures and restore everyone else to power.
Meanwhile you have an open sandbox, spiderString, and the Power of Wedgie...
...I don't think its possible to make a game interactive enough to do this game justice. Every NPC is wearing pants, you can levitate a rope to any roof, and the "stormtroopers" can hit you with any blasted element. That's not even getting into the concept of "tripwire." So it goes here as a reminder, until someone advances the technology.
