I just heard "Shelter from the Storm" in an Airbnb commercial and that's the last straw, I think I'd be fine if the heat death of the universe just went on and happened

@akkartik Just wanted to say, I played around with last night for the first time and thought it was very neat! My plan is to keep playing with it this week. Also makes me want to start digging into LÖVE tutorials.
