I would like to start this thread in order to challenge and/or motivate us as writers and game designers. The intent is that whoever wishes to offer a challenge or suggestion for a game design, a theme or story, or just simple elements can do so here in hopes that it will motivate others to create or perhaps to push us through a bit of writer's block. Your suggestions are not limited to size or genre or difficulty.
And who doesn't like a good challenge?
Also - if you know of already published games that fit these criteria/challenges, feel free to share!

Suggestions/Challenges: 1. A reverse time story or a "How did we get here?" story. I would like to see/play a game that starts at the end and the story works backward solving the question 'How did we get here?' I would consider this a difficult challenge.
2. A humorous text adventure from the point of view of a household pet (I like dogs =). I would consider this a fairly easy challenge.

Another suggestion: in german we call it "played joke" when actors play a joke on stage or tv. What about a played joke in a textadventure? This could really be a short game so it will not take much time to create it. And I could image interesting ways to do it. Not just doing something like this:
Why can't a blonde dial 911? continue... She can't find the eleven.

not my own blonde joke, but it's somewhat funny (depends more if do it in person, in how good you present/act it):
What did the blonde say when she found out she was pregnant?
