I have also set up a proper game design document for the project I have chosen to title The Bermuda Theory, primarily based on its location. I will probably talk more about its development later on, especially with respect to its level generation, as Godot's Scene system makes procedural generation by means of chunks or modules particularly easy and incredibly powerful due to the tree-based nature of it.
