A little about myself.
I try and write at least a game a year.
For writing code, I exclusively use #emacs (love the brutalist theme)
Programing languages I love : R, Fennel, Erlang, Scheme, C, Elisp
Languages I want to work with next: Rust, Elixer
Offline, I enjoy snowboarding and painting minis (Lord of the Rings)

Split the layers out a scooch and added some dynamics
Another little loop. This one needs a bit of work to turn into a proper progression.
Been loving the #Vital synth VST
I think it mainly has to do with the consistency of the UI paradigm and the quality of resources that are available.
