This message is just to indicate my interest in this game project.

I am interested in intellectual games and I want to follow and hopefully
contribute to a DotGNU sub-project.

Currently I am teaching myself about game design and construction,
particularly non-arcade games. This project would also help motivate 
me to learn about DotGNU. 

I have some programming experience, but at the present time I would
place my skill level at about Apprentice level (in Advogato terms).

I will contribute where and when I can.
