Re: Game Concept?

As a professional video game developer, right off I can tell you you're making fundamental mistake: you're thinking about the story and not the actual play. "What's the interaction? What do you do? What are the objectives, win and lose conditions?" Those are what you need for a game. The story is merely the setting. You need the gameplay to be compelling. The story and setting is frosting. You need the cake.
