    @Lukan *Looks at own avatar* I'm frightened by the potential art in your game...

    I suppose this is letters NAL and their positions in each of the words of given length. There's two that are eight letters long, so the fourth line means it goes to the one with no letters yet.

    Maybe this is a possibility:

    I sit on the bald and they thrive = WIG

    Code:
    ------ ---W--- --------- ------
    --I-- -------(G)
    --A----(G) --
    
    I don't know where the G goes, as there are 2 8-letter words!

    It's a letter for each, so I'd assume the G goes to the 3rd theme 8-letter word rather than the 2nd theme one.

    hmmm

    Code:
    I----- S--N--- O-------- T-----
    B-A-- A-------
    T------L T-
    Or the i sit on the bald and they thrive could be the last letter in each word

    No hints I'm afraid, the puzzle already contains all the elements you'll need to decipher it. Everything's just getting harder to find.

    They kind of look like ASCII code numbers to me.

    in ASCII:

    99 = c
    118 = v
    7 = BEL (Bell) causes an alarm or bell sound - Can also be triggered by the key combination CTRL-G

    However, the Bel code eludes me. Either it could be a reference to the letter G from the CTR+G code, or B for Bel.

    Or looking at the clue - Brothers Go ....Together - CTRL+C and CTRL+V are the Copy and Paste shortcuts - and their brother is the CTRL+X (Cut) Command - so maybe the last letter is X (But then how does that relate to the number 7, and which 8-letter word does it go in - perhaps as before, 1 letter for each theme)

    There's only 1 5-letter and 1 7-letter word, so c and v would give:

    Code:
    ------ -V-W--- --------- ------
    
    --I-C ------(G/X?)-
    
    --A---(G/X?)G --
    
    Which makes absolutely no sense whatever.

    Thank you and goodnight, I have to take my medicine now.

    Brothers Go - First Hit - Chemical Brothers - Go

    Chemical - Table of Elements:

    7 = N (Nitrogen)
    118 = Og ( Oganesson )
    99 = Es ( Einsteinium )

    Code:
    ----ES ---W--- --------- ------
    --I-- -OG-----
    --A---NG --
    


    Just not sure where the 118 and 99 go. Are we supposed to use both letters of the element? 99 (Es) could then be part of either a 5 or 6 letter word. And 118(Og) could be part of a 7 or 8 letter word depending on number of letters used.
    You sneaky....I see what you did there.

    ...and there...awesome...

    My first guess. That, and the Mario brothers... and then I started thinking Smash brothers, and Teen Titans Go! (And perhaps 'go' has something to do with 五, i.e. 5, as in the Mach Five. Go Speed Racer Go.)

    My second guess. But I figured this was wrong as soon as I realized that chr(7) is not a letter...

    I'll give you it, although the ES ends the last word in the first theme rather than the first. Updated the first post to reflect :)

    Seriously you are amazing at deciphering the very imaginative NAL's puzzles.

    personally I'm dropped.

    For reference.
    Code:
    - - - - E S    - - - W - - -    - - - - - - - - -    - - - - - -
    - - I - -    - O G - - - - -
    - - A - - - N G    - -
    A = 7
    B = ate
    C = 9

    7 to 9 of 9 is the first 60.
    7 to 8 of 8 is the last 40. (Not the ng, I assume that refers to the NG in the third theme).
    100 is the start of the Gungeon. (All I can think here is enter the Gungeon, but I don't actually know anything about that game).

    There is only one 9 letter word, which is the third word in the first theme.
    The only 8 letter word, excluding the one with NG is the second word of the second theme.

    So... Not sure what first 60 means or last 40.
    Or 100 is the start of the Gungeon. But I did the easy part.

    Code:
    - - - - E S    - - - W - - -    - - - - - - - 6 0    - - - - - -
    - - I - -    - O G - - - 4 0
    - - A - - - N G    - -
    Another thing that bothers me is why it says "Why's" instead of "Why is" but that probably doesn't matter.

    Start of the Gungeon could either refer to the Breach or Keep of the Lead Lord.

    Well the breach isn't actually in the gungeon. So I'd say the start is the Keep of the Lead Lord. I know basically everything about gungeon because it's the only thing I play other than BoI, but I'm not very good at puzzles.

    One possibility is that we're supposed to extend the connection between the letters and numbers.

    ie, D = 10, E = 11 etcetera. But that feels like a stretch. It doesn't let use get 40 or 60 because we still need letters for 0, 4 and 6.

    Wait.

    Keep of the Lead Lord.

    KLL
    100
    1 = K
    0 = L

    Then we know 0 so first 60 means 6 = F and last 40 means 4 = L? No we already have L, I don't think that's it. Pretty sure about KLL though, that makes a lot of sense.

    The full title of the game is Enter The Gungeon.

    The numbers could be percentages.

    100% is the start of the gungeon
    100% is the word ENTER.
    If we divide up the word, each letter is 20% (100/5)
    So the first 60% is ENT
    The last 40% is ER

    So that means letters 7 to 9 of the 9 letter word is the first 60% (ENT)
    And the last 40% is letters 7 and 8 of the 8 letter word which doesn't have NG in it (ER)

    Code:
    - - - - - -    - - - W - - -    - - - - - - E N T    - - - - E S
    - - I - -    - O G - - - E R
    - - A - - - N G    - -
    
    The 2nd word of the 2nd theme would then probably be TOGETHER
    - STICK TOGETHER?
    - BRING TOGETHER?

    Actually STICK TOGETHER would explain @Alice 's previous drawing as well! Alice may have been way ahead of us.

    Well, the last Jam winner performed particularly well in a boss-themed Jam, so of course it would be in their interest to have this Jam boss-themed as well. *whistling*
