Elm is a purely Functional Reactive Programming language which happens to have the best current implementation of a Time Travelling Debugger (inspired by Bret Victor's "Inventing on Principle" talk) and is ideally suited for games and UIs.
We'll see how FRP, a strong yet simple(r than Haskell) type system and an interactive programming workflow make developing a small game a much more pleasant experience compared to the mainstream game engines.
