Hello! I'm a queer game developer, currently working on a game engine in Rust and a compiler for a language that's used in the engine. During the day I'm working on a brain machine interface and some games for it at CTRL-Labs.

If you're doing anything similar (engines, compilers, gamedev in Rust etc) or are trying to get into that sorta stuff feel free to message me, I'd love to chat!
