Ideas for a video game Answered

I have been writing c# XNA games for Xbox 360, and I am currently working on a zombie game. Kind of a tower defense, with zombies. It is almost finished and I have been pondering what game I could make next. That is we're you come in. I was wondering if I could get some good ideas for an Xbox game. I would like a game that is fairly simple, and one that uses a random play environment. I am currently limited to 2d. I am planing to finish my previous game within about a month, so I would like to know what I am making next within about 4 weeks. Since today is January 30th 2012, let's say cut off is about February 30th. But the sooner the better. Of course, if I chose your game, you would get a free code for it if and when it is finished. Also keep in mind that I cannot make a game with copyrighted elements, like star wars or something. Try to be creative and come up with a good idea. Remember that i would prefer to make a game wih a random play environment  Thanks! This helps me a ton.

Oh and that brings up the point...I am interested in letting anyone try my game :)
I have been wasting too much time that i should be working on the game, playing other games. But i think i'll finish it soon. Oh and btw that "deadline"? ignore it.

So if you want to try the game, you can download it on my web site: www.robodev.webs.com

The download link just brings me to the main page of the file host you are using.

By the way, is it an exe? What format is the file in?

Delete my upload...argh how could they! I'll fix it sometime soon and i'll post here when it is fixed.

It will probably be in an install package that you can unzip and install with setup.exe

BTW since it is meant for xbox, it is also meant to be used with xbox controllers connected to your pc. although i did add a sloppy 1 player mouse and keyboard control abilities.

Oh, I thought it would be in flash or something.

I am not using windows so I would need to install Wine to play the game.

To my knowledge, XNA is not flash compatible. And I'm pretty sure that my knowledge is correct.

Not if I'm trying to make money. I don see flash as the most profitable means of posting a game. Xbox live is a bit better.

Since it has to be 2d, maybe a Sci-Fi RPG? it would be platformer/shooter while leveling up and choosing your skills. A good idea I came up with rpg's is that while you choose your skills you gain bonuses for spending in those skills (ex: spending in rifle and rocket skills), so theres a different way to play all the time. The game should be heavily story driven, taking place in the future; where get to use a bunch of cool stuff. The missions could differ in the environment. You could spray down foes in low grav. or rocket up a ship to bomb a turret. There should be 50 possible missions IF possible. The art should be beautiful. Don't saturate everything like in battlefield 3. Make it colorful. A shining city in a night backround. Biohazards radiating green. See, everything must exceed to make a masterful game. Unique combat, hidden upgrades to keep you playing. Finding a masterful soundtrack (none of that rap crap). Beautiful art design. And if possible, multiplayer coop or splitscreen coop could help unlock cool content. There my ideas, i have many more, but this is what i would like to see. You can email me, my yahoo is j3e72125@yahoo.com, I hope you considered my Idea!
