Crunch week

So far, I have managed to persist all my data, export it, move the editor into the actual game and fixed a number of bugs that I have exposed by trying to use my Lump tool to build actual content. I try to build one thing and run into a slight snag because I can't… Continue reading Crunch week

I’m going to try and keep a diary on this blog again
