I am not very creative and I’m having a hard time coming up with an idea for this project that is viable. I am hoping to get some ideas from y’all’s feedback here, hopefully before next week. Thanks all and good luck!

Instead of ideas (which I can also give you some if you really need them), here's some advice to come up with an idea:
- Find a game you want to play, and then make it your own.
- Another way would be to decide on the type of game you want to make (platform, puzzle, point and click, fps, etc.) and work on the finer details later.
- If you had any larger-scale game ideas, you could always boil it down to its most basic identity and work with that.
- Lastly, you could always partner up with someone who already has an idea, resolving your problem completely.

I watched this youtube video on how to brainstorm for video game ideas: https://youtu.be/fDqnw5pNebk?si=c_7WaFBcxMBQy2et

For inspiration I'm making a list of games I like then I'm making a list of what I like about those games and I plan to combine all the things that go together to make my final game.

I'm debating myself on weather to make an endless game or to make an RPG with a bunch of levels
