RPG Development Progress Pulse

Progress Pulse Series I figured this would be a fun thing to start to do just to get small updates out and talk about what I've been working on for ProjectXyz and my RPG I'm building in Unity3D.

It's an interesting learning opportunity for me, so why not share it with those that are interested? The format of this post is really just to call out the specifics of some strategies I'm looking at exploring when building the brand for my vehicle to help with sponsorship opportunities. Reach Outside Core Audiences This one shouldn't be a shock to you if you're familiar with this blog already.
