Soo the theme for the gamejolt slamdance game jam is FRINGE... it's possibly the worst gamejam theme in worst gamejam theme.. HISTORY! I googled fringe to see what it means and mops and haircuts were 99% of the search results, please someone give me some ideas on what kind of game would 'qualify' as being fringe themed or i will be entering a game about a mop haha

they likely mean it as "extremity of something", or "at the very limit/edge". it can also be used to simply mean 'extreme' or 'to surround/form a border around'.

some examples would be something to do with the edges of civilization/the universe/known space/ocean/something, being far from society/help/whatever, testing the limits of something, an extremist movement (political), or an unusual subculture/lifestyle that differs radically from the accepted social standards.

So on the game jolt forum they've told me the theme says were supposed to make a game that the character goes through the boundries of the game.

those aren't ideas, they're names
Those are the names of my game ideas
