Monthly “Life” Update: January 2018

So, I’ve been working on a game for the past year and a half now. However, due to life events I have yet to touch the project on it for close to 5-6 months. When I first started this game, I had hardly any coding experience and with the stuff I have learned within the last few months, I decided to scrap parts of what I have created and started to piece together a new foundation for De-Thieved.

So I thought back to what I really enjoyed doing when I was even younger.
