I knew I wouldn’t have time to do a “proper” game this Ludum Dare but I didn’t want to miss out. As such here is a quick game I knocked up just so I can say I submitted something.

clicker consists of clicking… with the mouse. You have 10 seconds to click all the buttons and advance to the next level. Each progressive level adds an extra button and every %5 level has a little shake!

Requires Java or Open JDK 1.6+ to play

This is my first Ludum Dare and although stressful it has definitely been enjoyable, and a good learning experience. “barry-cade” (I normally sneak a character called Barry into all my games… this one has no characters so….) is a basic constant scrolling avoid the obstacles thingamabob.

I hope people like it *looks nervous*

This game requires Java or OpenJDK 1.6+ to run….



I am looking forward to playing some awesome games :)

I am done for the day….

I am struggling to get use to WordPress and needed to test uploading an image before the competition begins *excited*. As such I present to you a rather shoddily taken photograph of my workstation.


I will be using an old much loved laptop with Intel integrated graphics (Write here, run anywhere).

I’m in…

This will be my first competition! After years of watching this awesome community from the outside I am nervous and excited about joining/becoming part of it.

I started dabbling in OpenGL a couple of years ago and now have a couple of unfinished and abandoned projects under my belt. I’m hoping that LD will force me to see something through until the end.

I might not be very good and will probably not finish on time, but I am sure it will be a lot of fun along the way.

My weapons of choice are:

  • Language: Java
  • Libs: LWJGL, Slick-util
  • Graphics: GIMP
  • Sound: sfxr

I’ll see you on the other side……
