Cities Skyline inspired game (Test #3)


Added citizens to our game! They are tracked individually, belongs to a family and they tweet (in-game tweet I mean)!. Basic menu and the ability to spawn residential zones and industrial zones has also been done. Once the residential buildings are constructed new families will start moving as long as a slot for new family is available.
