What Game Shall I Work on Next?

Hey guys,

Ants is coming to an end now and just really needs finishing touches adding to it. I have another couple of game ideas and just wondered which you guys reckon I should work on next:

Platformer:
Classic style platformer that will be reminiscent of the Super Mario Bros Games of the 90's but with a lot more modern concepts and artwork. It will be nice and bright and sunny looking.

Simulation:
This game will follow a band and you will have to build the band up from being a garage band to stadium rockers. There will be loads of features like you have to get lessons for each individual member, keep them happy with Jack & Coke's but not too many because they become unreliable, you have to record albums in crappy studios and work your way up, promote your gigs with fliers, etc.

Here are my thoughts:
I'm tending towards the platformer at this time because the weather is well crappy and working on a nice sunny game with my heating on full may cure the winter blues and also I may hold off on doing the band game for in-app purchases so you can buy coins for more money to spend on gig promotion, recording, instruments, etc or at least wait for GC for achievements.

Let me know your thoughts...

    Hi Ace... I voted the platformer... cause that would be what I play...

    but, think the simulation would appeal more to many teens, young people... so keep putting some thoughts and time into it...

    Cheers Hoosey Hoosey Gander... I think I'm going to do the platformer first and work on the simulation afterwards :)

    I say the platformer, it sounds more promising while the stimulation doesnt sound really appealing

    I say simulation. I loved gameDevStory it did very well in the charts too. So sim games done right can be hugely successful.

    I suggest Platformer with some RPG-style experience on it.

    platformer I would prefer to play, however simulation games do seem to do very well over the long term.
