DevLog #2 - Art, HacknPlan, Radical Honesty Dot Collector, and Indie Games, oh my!

Super excited to share our second DevLog with you all!  Over the past two weeks, the team has been hard at work on Shadow of the Moon and we have even added a new concept artist to our illustrious crew! Joe and I have been hard at work on the game's story, we've done some great planning for the engine, been interviewing some super talented candidates for sound and composing, and have even been prepping for Baltimore Comic Con!

Even just using it for a few weeks we have found some helpful customization which we hope will assist others as well.
