.....in ADA! :| Maybe with a Vulkan renderer.

Interesting. Hard to say how useful since the whole structure of the code was rearranged during the ADA port process.
Also seems to be contrary to the original intention of the project.
ADA was chosen because it's very strict and robust. It's for long-term unbreakable code for military and industrial clients.
Vulkan, on the other hand, is brand new, experimental, and not well defined in terms of specification. Right now, AMD and Nvidia
are probably letting Developers code Vulkan renderers any way they want to and then defining the specification based
on their use-case and feedback. So a sloppy, vendor driven specification that is currently "work in progress" being chosen
for a stable "military grade" code project?
What the hell is going on?
Maybe they think Vulkan is so unstable they need a super stable underlying backend so they can expedite bug tickets.
Eg. "See, even if the code was created by John Carmack and converted to ADA, your stinky Vulkan specification causes
problems... Make the specification more strict!!!"

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

Intriguing project, i don't know anything about that language, looking at it looks very similar to the language Jonathan blow (witness developer) is making called Jai!
Btw nbobr1more how can a language be "military grade"? Any computer language in good hands is very stable any "rock solid military grade" language in bad (noob) hands is unstable, IMO is the programmer that counts not the language, on the other end speed and readability of the code does depend on the language.
