Hey there, everyone!

Cool 
Hey there!
I'm a 17 year old student of Music Technology in college in the United Kingdom, after this I'd hope to go to university and then enter the games industry, perhaps involved in writing music for games? Anyway, I like to keep my horizons open and I love learning new things - programming, art, music (obviously), etc.

I take a lot of inspiration from the GBA / DS era of games, I grew up playing them after all, and I feel like a lot of that translates into my own work now. I'm currently working on a few personal projects outside of college, including some GBA homebrewing - if I'm gonna call back to that era of games I might as well delve into the nitty gritty of how it works, right?

Some of my favourite games include Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure, Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter, ALL the Pokemon games (spinoffs included), the GBA Fire Emblems, Zachtronics puzzle games such as Shenzen I/O and Opus Magnum, Into the Breach, all the Rhythm Heaven games from the GBA to the 3DS, Celeste... I feel like I could keep going but long lists are hard to write and harder to read so I'll spare you it for now! Point being, I love all sorts of games from all sorts of eras - I'm always open to suggestions of games to try out!

Anyway, I'm really excited to get to know everyone and share what we have to know - I've noticed there's not a ton of information on the GBA in an easy to gather space anymore (RIP Pern Project) so perhaps that'll be my first big contribution here, you never know Wink

Hi! Welcome welcome! Thats very cool that your studying Music Technology and want to get into the games industry, I wish you all the luck on your ventures studies and will to go forward. An open mind is all that is needed for progress in this world, and the will to do so. You should totally check out The World ends with You for the DS if you haven't already, a game full of stellar atmosphere, a unique story line, characters that burst with life, a great flow of mechanics, and very satisfying gameplay that allows for your imagination to have the most fun as you enter battle using a set of Pins or techniques that are activated in accordance to how you must use the stylus, all while your partner in combat is fighting on the other screen. a true gem in the rough!

Anyways, enjoy your stay friend.
