Does a Wizard Academy Simulation Game sound interesting?

Hi fellow game devs!

Working on my 2nd game right now, and wondering if the concept I'm developing is worth pursuing.

Here's a screenshot of the buildings I've created so far in Blender, a free 3D modeling program I just learned a few weeks ago:


High-Res Version

Description of the "Prestige: a Wizard Academy Simulation Game"
Sort of mix of SimCity & Harry Potter, where you play the role of a Dumbledore, with mechanics like GameDevStory/Clash of Clans/FTL. The goal is to create meaningful and complex decision-making around how to run the school, which professors to hire, what students to admit, how to train them, and what missions to take on. As well as compete against other wizards schools. All in an effort to raise the "Prestige" of your school and be the best in the land.

So what do you think? Would YOU play a game like this? What moments or decisions would you love to see in this type of game?

Thanks for your feedback
Cheers,
-David
