With project 4 wrapped up and live, I'm starting to focus in on the 5th project. Project 5 will also be a game. It'll be a game of my own design and creation, rather than a remake of an existing game.

This game is going to be deeply ...

I've decided to commit to releasing a new project monthly. I'll write a new post at the beginning of ...
