    I downloaded this game to try for a few minutes and ended up catching every fish possible except one.

    This image from the article almost looks like satire. "The economy of tomorrow ... today!"

    Ah, I took "credit" to mean "recognition". I do not believe Rust is widely recognized, despite its impressive accomplishments.

    I think one of the major limiting factors for Rust adoption is ... Rust adoption. As far as I know, there are no large production ready projects written in Rust.

    As the creators and primary maintainers of the language, I think it is up to Mozilla to show the rest of the industry that Rust is ready for prime time use. Instead, after years of development, Mozilla's flagship product is still 28% C++ and >7% Rust.

    Compared to something like Go, Rust has had an incredibly slow adoption rate, even after accounting for the difficulty of learning each language. On the TIOBE index Go is #18 and Rust is at #37 (below languages like D, Dart, and Scratch). I think this is largely due to the fact that Google started using Go for serious projects immediately, but no one has done anything with Rust outside of relatively small experiments.

    I think Rust still needs one big project to be used as an example in convincing average joe PM's that Rust is a safe choice for starting new projects and sparking widespread industry adoption.

    Rust is actually not that widely known. It is very talked about in certain circles but I think the industry as a whole is mostly ignorant of Rust.

    Are custom themes something that could potentially be supported in the future?

    I think the dark theme works well on mobile but I would personally prefer a "light grey" style dark theme for non-mobile devices.

    I found tildes through a list of the top 10 most active reddit alternatives according to alexa rankings. If tildes is active enough to be ranked that high I think it is somewhat easy to discover.
