What is your target audience? What skill level? What age level? i.e. is this book for someone who is already a competent code monkey or for someone who is never written a line of code before?
I've been approached by a publisher to write a book on game development. I'm trying to brainstorm some ideas for a 2D game that I could make for the book. Do you have any suggestions?

I want to help design a "sandpark" MMO. Optional interactive story with quests and deeply characterized NPCs, plus sandbox elements like player-craftable housing and lots of other crafting. If you are starting a design of this type, please PM me. I also love pet-breeding games.

You could make a terrible game very much like Terraria. The only way to really show how a "GOOD" game is made is to use an already existing "GOOD" game. I'd also imagine that most "GOOD" games have very large problems with their codebases.
A sort of Terraria-style platformer would always be a good way to show how a GOOD game is made.
