I have a game idea for a world simulation game but I am not sure if I should go ahead and develop it. I am worried about how complicated it will be but I feel like I should forge ahead.
The player develop a city in a large game world. The city will be inhabited by people who will age and die. In order to expand their city they need to develop their infrastructure (food, power, water etc) to support their expansion. The people can go to school, get married, get jobs, start their own companies etc basically just lead ordinary lives. Players can also participate in world events like sports tournaments.
I will get someone else to do the artwork but I will be doing the programming.
What I don't know is how detailed to make this game. I don't want it to be way to detailed so that it will never be finished but I don't want it too simple.
Is it a good idea to go ahead. I really need some advice.
