    About jonnopon3000 (twitter: @jonnopon3000)

    Since playing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time when I was eight years old, I've wanted to make games. It wasn't my first game, but it was the first that left me inspired. As a result, I've kept track of the industry in as many ways as I can for years, and began teaching myself how to program a couple of years ago. Now, at 18, I have one released game (Snake Invaders: http://www.kongregate.com/games/jonnopon3000/snake-invaders), and have taken part in a few Ludum Dares.
    I pride myself on my progress, and take inspiration from the fact that I still have loads to learn.

    Alone in the unknown Timelapse!

    So I finally loaded up Vegas Pro 9 last night and inserted the some 2,537 images that Chronolapse took of my screen during the 72 hour Jam for LD#22. I whacked on some good music, was surprised by how well the tempo of the music and the image changes matched up in places, and published.
    My only regret is not capturing Nathan’s screen, as that’s where most of the game’s art happened and a bit of coding, too.

    Let’s not regret though, enjoy the timelapse!

    A new blog post at From The Beginning with a video detailing our new sounds and other changes. Too many to write about while we’re so tired, really.

    Almost ready to submit the game for the Jam.

    More progress as we finish the pause and menu states and implement the first working version of linking machine classes like doors and switches.

    The blog post at From The Beginning has more information and a video demonstration.

    Good luck once again to all, hope you’re enjoying yourselves as much as us.

    I’m in With a Friend! (+ background & info)

    Ok, finally an official word: I’m definitely in for Ludum Dare #22!

    I participated in Ludum Dare #21, and it was there that I produced my first ever hand-made Java + Java2D game. I’ve made a hell of a lot of progress since then, and am moving into Java + OpenGL (LWJGL library). I’ve dabbled in C# and C++ as well. Another interest I’ve taken is teaching a couple of friends how to use the language and encouraged learning for them. I also took part in the LD One-Hour Jam for fun.

    This time, I’m in with a friend. His name’s Nathan, and he’s pretty much in the position that I was in for my first LD. Working as a team, we hope to combine efforts and skills and produce something to be proud of in 72 hours for a Jam entry. I can at least guarantee that this’ll be better than my last attempt, Captain Starfire.

    A lot of my posts will be on Google+, Twitter and my public blog, From The Beginning. I might be doing a timelapse of my screen as well depending on whether I have the hard drive space or not.
    Nathan and I will be using Java with the standard Java2D library to produce this game. We may decide to dip into a bit of OpenAL for sexy audio, depending on the time we have towards the end.

    Thanks for reading, good luck all, and do check out my G+, Twitter and blog:
