If new beginnings + progression win with a tie, pretty much any game instantly fits the theme lol. Jus saying, start a new game and progress through it, is all~

New beginnings could take us on a lot of adventures.

well all of us are making a "new" game from the "beginning" right? q-:

So true! This is kind of "Inception" like. LOL!
Bring me a shrubbery!

I've seen games (or rather, level designs) that are near impossible to progress through q-:

Doing the polar-opposite of the theme can itself be considered thematic right?
How making a game where the only option is "Continue" from a provided save (can't start new game), and as soon as you load the game you die?

I think a lot of people are getting hung up on the beginning of the game, but when I suggested new beginnings I was thinking more along the lines of starting a new job, new relationship, moving somewhere new to start a new life... I wasn't thinking press start to begin.

Just felt I needed to clarify why I suggested it for theme nomination.

Yeah I know what you intended.  The thing with most nominated themes is you can't really stop people from taking other interpretations (or other associations), or stop other people from joking about it q-:

Take "Hedgehog" for example, a possible setting using that as a theme might be a "goundhog day"-like experience for some hedgefund manager, trying to survive all the assassins sent by a pissed off mafia boss who got screwed during the financial crisis.  The goal is to exit the goundhog loop having appeased (or otherwise dealt with) the mafia boss.

Or one can make a Sonic-inspired platformer for a hedgehog theme.

Notice a goundhog day-like experience can also fit the "new beginnings" theme (you start over from the beginning of the day continuously)... or maybe it would be considered "old beginnings" because you'd be repeating the same day (even though you experience slightly different stuff)?

Now I think about it, a rogue-like RPG where the dungeon is randomized everytime you enter it, and you always start at level 1 when entering the dungeon.  That would fit the "new beginnings" theme too.

I guess it'd be up to the event organizers' call if anything is forbidden/disqualified as valid usage of the theme (I assume it'd be super lenient)

I hope to god I can hand animate.
Worst idea evah to try it out for the first time on a deadline, but why try something safe I might succeed in when I can fail miserably and quit~
