Adventure Game #000: Testing

First post for testing. I am a Computer Science graduate from the University of Washington turned indie developer. My goal is to create a Module built adventure game piece by piece and document the process with the hopes to help someone in the future. I have been part of several game projects including  Defense of Allenda ,  Ghostlight Manor , and  GoArmy Edge Football Here we go!
