    I like a poll that enables me to select all of the options at once. That's my kind of indecision.

    Yes. No. Maybe? I don't know, can you repeat the question?

    And to actually answer the question, I am... not? excited I guess? Like, I am, I acknowledge that this is a good thing and it looks like a great way for beginner and intermediate developers to get started with game development, but I also acknowledge that I have learned to use, like, 8 different game engines over the past 20 years and haven't had the attention span to actually develop anything more than an intro "hello world" thing.
    Here's my thought. The Switch runs Unity, that was one of its key features, the ease with which companies would be able to export their Unity based games to it with only minor tweaking: why not just open up an indie licensed version for people to play with? Why develop an entirely new engine? Maybe I'm just getting old and cranky but it kind of feels like enough is enough.

    For those who have kids and own a Nintendo Switch, I suggest you grab FUZE⁴ for your little ones to have a play around with :)

    I probably will get this when it's out, because I can't get any sort of computer until July due to my finances being overseen by strict people, and I've been bored out of my mind not being able to work on software. It will be good for prototyping game ideas before I get my Pyra. Who knows, maybe the simplicity will help me be more productive than I was when using C++ and SDL2.
