(Condensed the format of the title a bit).

I'm sorry that I'm spamming these, but they really do keep me motivated. I want to get stuff done just to show you guys! Feel free to ignore them :)


I'm on the right, my brother works on the left. We're both attempting to learn C# / XNA / MonoGame at the moment. So far it's going good, just learning the basics of the language.

Put this up for my bro and I to record our ideas. Some of them don't make any sense, and/or do not have a chance of being included in the game. Don't know why I spelled it "Naht."

State of the Project

As mentioned above, I have recruited my brother as programmer. He has zero experience with C#, but he's been hitting the books and watching tutorials, so I'm pretty excited about that.

In the first five days of actual development, I have the first chapter (of 5) completely planned out. Most game mechanics have also been solidified, that is, as much as they can be before actual prototyping.

I will now focus on creating all assets for the first chapter. I want to release a demo before September.

I actually live in Folsom, one of the original gold mining towns in California. Sutter's Mill (where they first found gold) and Hangtown/Placerville are only like 20 miles away. The mining towns in Sierra County are farther away, but my family travels there quite often.

I could just find photos on the internet, but I'm looking for specific things so I'd thought I'd give it a shot :)

I regret nothing. so many beautiful sights to see in Folsom.

You're lucky to have a brother who shows a bit of dedication, I can't even get my own brothers to work on their personal projects let alone collaborate on anything.

What is that website on your desktop?

I know right? I'm pretty lucky to have all this inspiration so close by.

I'm going on a devlog hiatus for a few days. Going to focus on learning C#.
