That's way better thought out than any of my game ideas! Run with it! Find a cool genre to stamp on top of it. Something different. Something fun like the Time Bandits - something cool where you can have wildly different types of monsters and heroes.
I think I mentioned this before, but watch Beach Party on Netflix. It's the first of those 60's Frankie and Annette beach movies. The first surfing scene, about 10 minutes in is ridiculous! There's shots of like 20 people all catching the same wave, hahaha. It's way rad. Plus greaser-looking Dick Dale's all over it lip syncing songs which is pretty rockin.
