Ludemetic Game Generator: Oldie but goodie. Gave me "Wardriver". Old BoogaBooga memes, turned into games! ("Wargame, Medieval, Space Exploration")

Time Meddler: This will be the game that makes our fortune, Leonard me boy. Time travel game! In other such games you experience time travel from the perspective of a human: you turn back the clock to a specific point and relive events from there. In this game, you are a four-dimensional being! To you, the timeline looks like the pages of a flip book spread out before you. Like a Trafalmadorian you can reach out and touch any of the segments of a timeline that strike your fancy. Unlike a Trafalmadorian you can change events. Changes have ripple effects into the future.

The game board looks like a 2d grid. The squares contain people and objects in different states over time. That is, the x axis is stepwise "time" and the y axis is stepwise "state of person/object #n". Your job on each level is to meddle with the timeline to achieve a certain result (eg. to make two people fall in love). You can insert items into the timeline, move objects around, etc. Every time you do something at time k, the timeline is redrawn from k+1 onwards. Maybe you have a limited ability to affect peoples' minds (you can make Alice think "I'll go for a walk" but not "On second thought, I'm in love with Bob!"). With the right modelling the possible actions and resulting events could be very flexible.

It is a turn-based puzzle game because of course it makes no sense to have any time-related operations since the whole point is you exist outside of time.

How do I know this game will make our fortune? TIME TRAVEL, DUH!
