Hello, as the title suggest, I’d like to fill a gap somewhere.
I’m 22 years old and studying business information systems in Würzburg, Germany.
I’m programming as a hobby, mostly with Java and I always wanted to create my own games, but finally came to the conclusion that I do not have the time and skills to ever satisfy my own requirements, especially when it would come to graphics, sound and all the stuff that cannot be done with code alone. :persecutioncomplex:
In addition, I cannot really decide which of m many ideas to start with or what tools to use (tried around with JMonkey, Slick, libGdx and a few others but never really stuck to anything), which is why I would love to help out somewhere.
To give you an idea of what I did so far, this is the only of my projects I can really show off, since someone helped me out with textures and Minecraft handled the rendering pretty well: http://www.curse.com/mc-mods/minecraft/228486-birds#t1:screenshots
I really love to design game features and AI in particular, I liked the Minecraft system of animating directly form code instead of using imported animations. But I’m a curious person and would try to learn whatever is necessary to contribute.
My preferred genres would be strategy, role-play and open world games in general. Not so much racing, shooters or jump’n’run.
