Alchementalog #5: Fixer Upper

Table of Contents Where We Stand Centering Ourselves A Link in the Chain Where We Stand In the last devlog, we tackled the problem of adding flavour to the map in a way that makes sense. Now, let’s do a little bit of refactoring of some of the previous code to fix up some small […]


Alchementalog #3: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
