About Me

Hello, I am Mari, a 28 year old Dutch guy who likes to play shoot 'em up games seriously.

I am a nerdy person that studied Computer Science and takes keen interests in countries, travel, geography, history, and public transportation. Traveling is my absolute favourite activity in life. I have visited 40 different countries so far, including my home country of the Netherlands, and one of my life goals is to visit every country in Europe, as well as at least one country per continent. Of course, I also like Web development.

Other than shoot 'em ups, there's a good number of games I value highly, as I loved playing them (still do) and they had a great positive influence on my life:

See the bottom of this page for my favourite Touhou characters.


I also absolutely love to listen to video game OST, especially that of many shoot 'em up games. My favourite composers to listen to themes of are the following:

OST makes up more than 90% of all of my time spent listening to music. My favourite OSTs to listen to include Labyrinth of Touhou, Seihou Shuusou Gyoku, Samidare, Dodonpachi Saidaioujou, Mushihime-sama as well as Futari, Great Fairy Wars, Subterranean Animism, Shining Shooting Star, Mrs. Estacion, eXceed 3rd, Guwange and Ikaruga; many more follow suit. Some of my favourite themes are listed in the table below.

* Rengoku Teien is a group of composers that produces royalty-free music; Labyrinth of Touhou simply uses it, among music by other composers.

Vertigo is possibly my favourite piece of music of all time.
