Well ... it's certainly minimal. I'd be interested to see where you go with this, but since it's not really a game as is there isn't much to say :x

Great to see someone making an engine from scratch! And you're doing it in pure software it seems, that's really something!
If you ever feel like adding 3D objects (I suggest sprites for this kind of engine, they are MUCH faster to draw and more forgiving to implement), take a look at the .obj format, it's very simple for a 3D file format, and both the .obj file (raw 3D data) and .mtl (material description) are plaintext and well documented. :)

cr4zyt3rry: I don't have anything wrong with his videos but I don't recommend that is how you learn to code. His game development is good, but teaching game development and coding at the same time is hard. I've learned the hard way that your best option is a book :) By "learned the hard way" I mean that I learned through the most popular YouTube Java tutorial, and in the end I still only knew about 1% of what I needed to know. The people who write the books get payed a lot of money (seriously, those books are like $50) to write those books, so they put effort into making it good so they get good reviews and people buy it. Sorry if I sound negative, I'm just trying to help :)

I instantly thought about the cherno. Looks nice though, so keep working on it. The framerate is a bit low on my i5/gForce540M and mouse-controls are extremely sensitive or broken. I hope you extent this into a proper game. Nice work so far.

A game with this engine (by cherno ;P) would be great :)

Quite interesting. Very impressive for a 14 year old. Keep at it.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
