About rynti (twitter: @Rynti)

Robert Böhm, also known as rynti, is an independent developer who enjoys making games or other applications. Besides his hobby, he's a student of a technical school in Austria, where he learned a lot about the programming language Java, which is one of his favorite languages. Along with Java, he also likes working with the languages haXe, C++ and Javascript.

His first step into the professional side of the industry was during an internship at IKARUS Security Software, where he got the opportunity to work on an anti-virus software for a month.

Ludum dare is the only regular competition he's participating in, where he repeatedly faces the challenge of creating a whole game in 48 hours.

In LD22, being the first Ludum Dare he competed in, he created a short platformer where especially gravity plays a important role. Actually, the game was just a side-project, since he basically created a whole platformer engine from scratch - including map and a unique, but yet very simple, scripting language.

LD23 is his second - highly enticipated - challenge he'll compete in. Let's be anxious about his result...

After two long programming days with a huge lack of sleep I finally finished my game, Crystalbots:

Just try it out, it’s pretty self-explanatory :)

Just had breakfast with my friends who are all participating in the competition with their own games.

Nothing left to say, bye!

The first tiles of my game “Are you still there?” are done:

Now I’ll start writing the basics of the game, I hope it won’t take up too much time :)

After oversleeping the beginning of LD by about 9 hours, I was shocked that I had absolutely no idea what I could do about “Alone”, but after about an hour I had the concept of my game done, including storyline, etc.

Then I started working on the character sprite, so I could start with programming. Here’s the idling character:

So, now I can finally start programming, by the way I’ll use Java with Slick/LWJGL.


Best regards,
