Idea for a game (gauging interest)

I am wondering how much people would be interested in a sandbox game which was based on a highly detailed simulation of a social setting, probably starting either in a school or workplace. I'm thinking of something kind of similar to free cities or lab rats 2 in gameplay, but with a more complex background interaction system. It is probably a bit out of my ability level, but I have been thinking about making it, and wanted to know if anyone else would be interested in that kind of game, and if so, what would you want to see in it?

The central idea that I currently have for the game is essentially that there is this system and you are trying to figure out how to manipulate it to achieve your goals, whether that be by gaining explicit power and changing the rules to benefit you, or by making friends with the right people so that any reports of your actions are ignored. It would be a game that is probably pretty light on explicit content, with much more focus on the way you get there.

Fetish wise, the main ones I am interested in exploring are blackmail, coersion, and dubious consent. There would likely be rape content, as well as more clear seduction and corruption paths as well. I think it is important to have that choice for this kind of game.

Is this an idea that other people would have an interest in, or would this be a project for just myself? If you would be interested, what would be the most important things for you to see? I can't make any promises that this will ever happen, but I do want to try to make it.

Some afterthoughts:
It would be really interesting and kinda challenging to climb up the hierarchy stairs, faking the reports, spreading some dirty rumours, bribing or intimidating the ones you sought as a weak target. Like the Wolf of Wall Street.

ambitious, imagine the work you need to do, be it in writing or scripting,

Overall as far as the setting goes, it's not bad, but it's the rapes and such that make me unlikely to want to download this game.

While i like the freedom of choice, it will be much work for you to make multiple core paths, its not only the choices, also the scenes need to differ between rape/blackmail and seduction/romance and you need to keep the content equal or the side with less content will complain.
But this concept screams for another big question, will there be a female protagonist as well and if so, will there be a pure lesbian route?
Better gather a team for this project, it could become to big for a single dev ^^

That is why I put my "project" on a shelf for a better days. Have some ideas, but I am no programmer and me drawing are rather simplistic, not mentioning my bad English with scarce vocabulary. Maybe I would post it somewhere as a short (or not) story. Maybe it will be half-forgotten like the rest of the stuff I've had earlier.

Yeah, I would be wary of how complex the project would be, sandboxes can get complicated fast. There's also a risk of the game being "bottom-heavy" so to speak, where there's a ton of content in the early parts, but things dry out quickly as you progress.

I'd play it, especially if there's pregnancy content although i'd be very wary of the first release or so thinking it would just get abandoned.

I would play it, specialy the blackmail and rape route

Out of curiosity, have you done any projects similar to this before?

I haven't, but I do a lot of experience with simulations and computer modeling. I realize that the project is probably, as it stands, overly ambitious, and one of the reasons I was asking about it was to get an idea of how I might narrow the scope of it in a way that people would be interested in.

My primary idea is to avoid a strict "core path" and instead have either paths for specific characters, as in LR2 or allow for emergent stories to come out of the underlying simulation. One game I am doing a lot of research into right now is dwarf fortress, because it is probably the most complex simulation based game I know of, and this game will really live or die on the ability to make interesting character simulations.

I would expect that it should be relatively simple to implement a female protagonist, based on the way I would design it, which would likely end up being pure or primarily lesbian. Any content where the player has sex with men is a lot less interesting to me.

Personally it wouldn't be anything I'd be directly interested in. However if done well just about any setting/game would be enjoyable.
