This sounds very cool, if you ever get to the point where you'd like to do
a video interview to show this off, let me know.
I have about 180+ game play reviews on my channel already that get pretty
good views, and about a half dozen or so interviews with coco developers as
well, past and present.
Thanks for adding more reasons for us to love our CoCo!
