Greetings from Vancouver! I just picked up my Beads a few hours ago.
Émilie. Bravo! I’m always amazed by how the Mutable modules so carefully balance the relationship between UI clarity and depth. Beads is no exception. It’s a great module and I think you achieved the goal of addressing Clouds’ limitations-- but this module goes so far beyond. Beads is deep without being confusing. It’s immediate, playable, and totally fun. It’s an instant classic and you should be proud of your work on this design.
I know this may be the final MI module (I’m sure I’m not alone in not so secretly wishing this isn’t the case) but I want to thank you for how much you’ve given to the modular community over the years. It’s a remarkable body of work which clearly has had a huge impact. Thank you!
