I totally agree with you and haven't actually thought about it that way. I think I was imagining it as becoming a game at some point point and that is probably why I abandon it, because I couldn't come up with any kind of "good" game play.
Maybe it could become a toy at some point. You are definitely making me second guess my choice of stopping developing on it :)
I will save your comment somewhere, so if I'm ever in doubt again about the direction of a project, I can look back on it.
