Step 3: Get Familiarized
Learn the purpose of all directories and files
Once you've downloaded the latest Monogatari release, take some time to get familiar with the files and directories inside it.
You can take a look at a more visual representation of the Monogatari project structure in this simple mind map.

Directories

You'll find some directories, here is what you should use them for.
Directory
Contains
assets
This is where all your assets such as images, audio files, font files etc. should go

The core engine files that make everything work. Updating Monogatari is as simple as replacing this directory.

This is where you'll set your game configuration and create your game script.
style
CSS files for your project (CSS defines the look and style of your game).

Root Directory

Inside the main directory you'll find some pretty useful files.
