Father by day, Developer by night!

I've been a software developer for the better part of 2 decades, developing in many languages and technology stacks.

I've been passionate about game development since I was a kid and have been making prototypes since then. I started back in the day with tools like Game Maker 4, RPG Maker, Klik N Play, Anim8r etc.

Lately I've been enjoying my time with Godot and want to share what I'm learning with others.

We will also be adding input scheme options within our game menu, controller vibrations when firing, and replacing our mouse cursor with a weapon crosshair when our input scheme changes to the gamepad.
