This is really VERGE-adjacent, rather than strictly about VERGE. Sorry!
I've actually finished a game! No, sadly, not THAT game, but A game. It's called SimpleQuest, and it's an RPG I probably should have built a long, long time ago.
The game's got one playable character, one town, an overworld, and three dungeons. More importantly, it's got pretty much everything you'd expect from a simple Dragon Quest-style game: items, battles, levelling up, etc etc, but not much else. The game isn't very long, and it's as straightforward as possible.
If anyone out there is still working with Verge, I highly recommend doing the same sort of thing! Figure out what the absolute minimum you need for a game you'd like to make, and focus on just that. When you're done, you'll have a better understanding of the process, you'll have a bunch of code you've tinkered with enough to get working, and you'll have something to show off. THEN you can look at the next project. :)
