Ray Creator

Posted by Christopher on September 9, 2012 at 10:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Well, I got bored one day and came up with an idea for an image-creating program. Thus, Ray Creator was born. It's a program that, given certain input options by you, creates a random image. It's actually quite cool, if I do say so myself.

The program started off as a Slick2D application that loaded settings from a text file and only had the Rainbow render type (you'll have to download my program to know what that is). After finishing the program, I realized it was very limi...

Learning Music

Posted by Christopher on August 19, 2012 at 10:50 AM Comments comments (1)

I've learned a piece of software so I'll be able to start making music now! The software is the easy part, though. The hard part is knowing what notes to put where and how long they should play and what instrument they should be.

At least I'm still working on learning music. As I mentioned in my previous blog post, that's the only area that was left in game dev where I had no idea what I was doing. Once I figure out how to pick notes, I can finally actually release a game!

Proud of Myself

Posted by Christopher on June 29, 2012 at 3:15 AM Comments comments (0)

I am so proud of myself right now. I just fixed a huge bug in all my games that caused all resources (images, sounds, etc) to be loaded twice. I had been trying to fix the bug for the past month at least. Now that the bug is fixed, I'm not nearly as hesitant to actually officially release at least 1 game.

I just have 2 things making me hesitant now.

1) I haven't created any music for any of my games. All my music has come from a popular royalty-free website. I would pr...

Zombie Annihilation

Posted by Christopher on May 27, 2012 at 3:50 PM Comments comments (0)

I just uploaded a new game! No, it's not the maze game I've posted about. It's the game for the 10-day competition from my previous post. I actually finished a game for a competition! Woohoo!

The game isn't quite what I wanted it to be. In fact, half of the gameplay is missing! The game itself is fun, though, because I knew early enough that I wouldn't have time for the other half of the gameplay, so I polished the gameplay that's already there. After the competition is over, I am going...

10-day Contest

Posted by Christopher on May 18, 2012 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (0)

I'm entering another contest! Link is here:

I've already designed and started work on my game. It's going to be based around zombies and weapons, but with a twist. I can't say much right now since I'm working hard to make sure I'll finish the game before the competition ends, so I'll tell more later. Probably after I win! :D

Wait! Don't forget about me yet! It's been a while since I posted an update, but I have been working on game development in the meantime. So much, in fact, that I have multiple things to update you on.

  1. 30 Clicks will be released very soon. There are some little housekeeping things I need to sort out before I can officially release it. It may get a name and graphics change in the future, but I should stop being indecisive and just release it. I'm proud of the game, especially becaus...

30 Clicks Almost Finished, & New Maze Game.

Posted by Christopher on November 30, 2011 at 5:55 PM Comments comments (0)

So, it's been a while. I haven't had much time to work on making games lately, but that's changed now.

30 Clicks is almost finished. You may have noticed that I kept pushing back the release date on its page. That was because I kept meaning to finish it, but I didn't have the time to do so. Now that I have the time to work on it, I'm pretty sure that this is the last time I'll have to push back the date.

I'm also working on a new game. I started this a few months ago when I was al...

Scary Four Digits 2011 Competition - Update 1

Posted by Christopher on October 23, 2011 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Well, I don't think I'll be able to finish the game before the competition ends. The method I wanted to use for organizing maps is actually not possible, so I have to think of another way I can organize the maps. None of the code I have done so far will need to be changed because it doesn't have anything to do with the maps, but I am now stuck until I find another way to organize the maps.

Even if I could organize the maps the way I wanted to, I still don't think I could finish in time ...

Scary Four Digits 2011 Competition

Posted by Christopher on October 12, 2011 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

This blog post is late, and it is also my first. I just wanted to mention that I am entering the Scary Four Digits 2011 competition. Hopefully my finished game will turn out well.

Just a note, I will not be revealing many details about the game because I'm still not sure about a lot of things. A lot of decisions still have to be made, and I also don't want to spoil the effect th...
