No particular inspiration, but personal experience for what that's worth - for FAangband, I found it very useful knowing what I wanted to achieve. Then whenever I was thinking whether to include some feature, I just had to ask the question "Does this make the game more like my goal?".

Mind you, if you don't have a clear goal and just want to start messing around and see what happens, that can work too
