Thanks! That lines up with Extra Credits' video about "Minimum Viable Product," and I'll try to bear that in mind while I get started.
Also, just noticed that you're from the Pacific Northwest -- sweet! Always nice to connect with creators from the same area. Maybe sometime I'll see some local plant life in your games (madronas?). Stardew Valley's creator is also from around here (I found out yesterday), and he added salmonberries to SDV ^_^
