Well alright, it doesn't look like much, or even do much, but there is a lot going on in the background. I'm actually fairly proud of the ECS system I've got going on. No, it didn't take me five months to make that, although the source already spans 27 files, despite my intentions to keep premature abstraction to a minimum. I was drafting the GDD for most of that time, which is very helpful for keeping my priorities in check.
I was going to make this project crowdsourced, but I'm not sure about that anymore. I will release the source on github once I'm comfortable with it, for all to see, judge, and submit pull requests.
End goal for phase 1: something remotely playable. A hero, couple creatures, town screen, combat.
