Log week # 5
This week, i spent a little bit of time on the game design document. But mostly i am having some physical issues with my upper abdominal area, which is giving me recurring shortness of breath and low blood pressure. No health insurance (America) so, i am going to slow down from time to time, and work on my good days. But, i will indeed continue progress. Although, i am not going to bump the thread for this week.
Any who, see you guys next week hopefully with more progress.
