Been busy with music and administration.
Discovered a memory leak that is big to fix.
I really enjoyed making a small Jam game for last AGDG,
so I'm going to prototype another small game and put
Cash Sample on hold.
Like for the Jam game, I'll build assets and code I can reuse later.

Unity, Blender, Paint.NET

+ Polished card behavior and movement
+ Added card tooltips next to them when hovered
+ Added a little flag to cards to indicate that they belong to the player's deck (as opposed to basic cards that you get every turn)
+ Cards move to either the player deck or discard pile if played (or fade out if they dont belong to the player)
- Found out that you cant rotate unity terrain, so i need another way of making modular tiles
