Hello World!

Starting my first 7DRL!

I was going to use Unity, but I know javascript so much better so I decided at the last minute to do things in ROT.js with a React/Redux back-end.

Getting Rot to render in React was sort of a nightmare, but I eventually got it to work by using a setTimeOut, not the best, but it let the page load before the game tried to render. 

I then quickly realized I had no idea what I was doing, because I have never used ROT, so I followed the ROT tutorial and made the Pedro/Ananas game.  It actually came together fairly quickly.

I am going to refactor the game code next to better use Redux and then once I do that I am basically going to scrap it all to start on the real game.
