Hi Michael, Smile. One thing i won't be doing is taking a great deal of input on this game. For one thing it will be free, and second I have a pretty good idea of the kind of game I want. I was merely seeing which style or format would be of interest so I know what direction to take the game in.
However, your advice is well taken. You are of course right. I need to recharge, and this project is a chance to get back into programming without the stresses of the public saying they want this, that or the other thing. Its, for me, a chance to give MOTA a break and work on something I'd personally enjoy. Cheers!
