The next thing you need to do is convince us that it is worth giving you our time and hopefully money to explore that idea....

Really enjoyed this Capstone! It was a nice challenge, and it really pushed me to create a game out of my own imagination! It was definitely a great experience that I enjoyed journeying through!

Tight schedule, but it's really pushing you move forward to next stage and finally ship you game.
