Interested in video game design from a writer's perspective? We'd love to add writers to our OpenGameArt http://opengameart.org/ community!

Finally, my game project is starting to come together. I'm making an Action RPG engine in C++ and SDL. I'm doing the graphics in Blender and GIMP. I've got some great help from the Open Game Art community for other stuff like sounds, music, concept art, etc.
