Lets get some brainstormed ideas up and out there. Who knows we could end up inspiring someone else with a crazy idea!
Personally I think genres are a bit well... nonexistent. A game is simply a game. Although there are similarities between some, this does not mean that they should be placed in categories. So lets stick with the basics such as: What is the goal? Why is it a game? What are the rewards, if any? What is the challenge the player must over come?
I hope to build a game without the constants of it being though of as a genre at least in the very beginning. All ideas are welcome unless your a moron!
