TBS theme - what would you like to play?

Hey guys,

So here goes a totally non-scientific quick poll.

As you might have seen, we recently released Tactical Soldier - Undead Rising. Zombie themed survival TBS (www.tacticalsoldier.com). The middleware we created can be used for other squad level TBS games, and I am simply starting the though process of what would people like to play.

So without this being any kind of democratic "whoever gives most votes wins", you are still going to influence the choice in some ways if you voice your oppinion!

Given any kind of theme - tell me what you would like to play!

Here are some potential options:
- modern combat in arabic countries (think Call of Duty Modern Warfare as TBS)
- space encounters in alien spaceships (think Space Hulk)
- aliens on planet earth (think xcom)
- fantasy dungeon crawler (think Eye of the Beholder - if you are old enough )
- ww2 behind enemy lines (think classic WW2 games)
- .... your favorite theme

Anything goes!! No promises from me to ever do it, but I really would love to hear from you.

Post apocalyptic sci-fi (think Fallout). Pretty please.

Really love your game. Half of the reason why I love is so much is your camera perspective implementation. Very nice.

You should make the poll, heheh. On a different note, TS: UR was definitely the best TBS I've played in a long, long time. It's no doubt in the top 3 for the genre.

Either Warhammer 40k (post apocalyptic) or Warhammer (medieval fantasy) types would be some sweet TBS games to see. Lots of factions/races/units with a lot of diversity, depth, and plenty of diverse maps. Campaigns, skirmishes either single or multiplayer and we're good to go! I think it would work well and implementing iap would work for additional races/campaigns/map packs.

A Fantasy theme like FFT:TWOL, fire Emblem or Tactics Ogre.

What about an Advanced Wars (Modern Combat) theme? I've definitely waited for one for quite a while.

- Disgaea: If you're going to clone something, clone Disgaea.
- A neurological battlefield with opposing mental synapses/thoughts (i.e. Psychonauts but turn based)

- Time Travel/Alternative Realities - playing a alternative mimic of characters in different times.
- Cutesy food fight game - ketchup versus mustard within the fridge.

- There's lots of potential for clever nonsensical themes (for example imagine iOS games like Shift, Osmosis, or Pix 'n Love Rush somehow done turn based).
-Battling Godzilla-like monsters like the classic arcade game Rampage only turn based. If nothing else having a good boss level is a nice touch.

Edit: Sorry for the multiple posts, my computer weirded out.
