About me..... hmm....

I am a hobbyist Game Designer. I'm 16 and live in Sydney, Australia. Generally, I work with 2D games using the trusty (not so) ol' Game Maker 8, however i have recently been honing my skills on Unity3D, as well as XNA and Flash with FlashPunk.

I am a huge fan of Nicklas "Nifflas" Nygren, and his games. Knytt Stories all the way!

Not much else to say....

LD#19 Sydney Meetup!

Noticing the number o LD#18 meetups that were occurring, i thought it would be an idea to see if anyone around where I live wanted to do the same.
I’m in Sydney, Australia, so if any of you live around Sydney, and are interested in a meetup, chuck a comment up, and we’ll probably be able to sort out a nice central location.
Also, you can contact me on:

I’ve been working on a bit of AI, and this is how it’s turned out.

A & D to move Left / Right. you cannot jump.

click to place portals. blue sucks, red blows (thankyou Douglas Adams). placing a red underground will make the terrain higher, if you are standing on it, you move up too. dropping ground on an enemy kills it, turning it into what is basically a ground tile (which you can use as a “weapon”, along with the rest of the ground)


An update on progress

…the first one, actually XD
Well, i have about 1/2 – 2/3 of the game logic done, and a beautiful set of filler sprites that will gouge your eyes out with their ugliness. here’s a screenshot (notice how mt filler sprites have the same colour pallet as last LD :D)

Physics Galore

Yeah, see each of those outlined blocks? each one has it’s own rudimentary physics :facepalm:

I’ve finally managed to complete my history homework, so, four hours in, i can start my second LD (YAY :D)

I’ve got a couple of ideas, but i’m not sure. might scan in a few idea sheets, once i draw some up XD

lol, i have just taken unlucky to the next level (but thankfully i have worked around it)

My game workstation is my laptop… and i left the charging cord at school (i wouldn’t be surprised if you could hear faint cursing wherever you were). i managed to fix it by swapping the hard-drive into the *cough*school*cough* laptop (i’d never… XD) and booting into safe mode to get those drivers going. it’s not very fast, but still easily useable (as long as i dont have to re-boot, that takes 20 minutes ………)

I was thinking of using this LD as a sharp learning curve for me learning XNA in VC#, but it looks like im going to have to revert back to good old GM8 this time. maybe i can use XNA next time 😀

Possible New Game Engine!!!one!

Although i will probably be using Game Maker, i have started learning XNA, and MIGHT use that.
Wish me luck (i’m still finishing the XNA 2D tutorial XD)

Entry … Maybe (still)
