Two essays done on Ukrainian history, stories related to Ukrainian history written.
Very, very lucky to have serveral Urkainian friends support me and co-work with me on my game project, and I wish to show the struggle and the spirit of Ukrainian language in history through my game. By writing a game based on academic resources, I wish to express a real, debate-arousing story to the Ukrainian gaming society.
