Elm Story is growing — team, roadmap and community updates

After a year of solo development, I'm excited to announce that Elm Story is now a team-based project!

Welcome Leonardo (Sith), a narrative game designer with a rich academic and practiced background in the fields of narratology and user experience.

For the past month, Leo and I have worked closely planning the next year of Elm Story development.
