You can take two ideas and mix them!
- Pac-man but you move using cards, not arrows
- Breakout + Tetris
You can generate a title and find the game idea from it using this tool https://thattomhall.itch.io/rndgame
- Natural Giant
- River of Bones
You can pick one idea from a game you like and make a simplified version that captures the core idea for pico8.
- GTA mission where you escape from the bank: racing game where you start 1st and need to stay there!
There are also game idea generators like https://thattomhall.itch.io/game-idea-guru that give you many parameters (but you can pick only the ones you want), or twitter accounts that are bots generating weird game ideas every day.
