A compromise…

When the theme voting started, me and my friend agreed that we liked the theme “Islands” a whole lot. When the voting came to a close and the theme was “Minimalism”, we weren’t best pleased; but we soldiered on through the tough times, and came to a compromise, hence the title of this post. We are doing an game based on islands for our own amusement, but¬†incorporating the Minimalism aspect in with our love of the Islands theme. Saying all ¬†this, we may not even finish… Pic only slightly related

False pretences

This is just a bit silly now, isn’t it?

Just another “I’m in” post

Hello friends and friendettes, I’d like to begin by saying I’ve never actually done this before, and am (annoyingly) aware of my own proclivity to doubt myself when doing anything which has a deadline. This seems to actually make the problem worse for me D: All I’m trying to say is, I’ll attempt to make something (let alone something playable or visually pleasing) but don’t expect much, if anything.

I shall be using Java (version being 6 or 7, needless to say) and Paint.NET to create my disasterpiece, and possibly SFXR if I manage to get into sound. I will then probably either turn my creation into an applet, or package it up with Excelsior JET for boosted FPS and such. Why do games never tell you your FPS in the window’s title bar, anyway? I’m only 14 and have only been learning Java for a year, on and off (take into account GCSEs and other… Happenings), so be gentle with the result of this. Will probably end up using an engine from someone else, anyway.

Hoping I don’t fail too badly, good day to you all.
