My Past Work

Post by Garrett J Vandenberg on Thu Mar 28, 2013 2:02 am

Yeah, i've done more than just the Ceiling Fan.

I'm sure you guys are aware of the stuff I've worked on with the boys from Blimey Cow, and my work on the scoopcast as well. one thing you probably didn't know is that I used to be really into programming and game design. I put together tons of little mini games and stuff back in the day, because one day I really wanted to become a professional video game developer. That dream never really worked out, but here's some of the stuff I came up with while I was trying to.

Pixel Jumper - http://www.truploader.com/view/348820
Pretty simplistic game, but I polished it off to the best of my ability at the time. The gameplay itself isn't all that interesting, but it's entertaining and challenging to try to beat your high score, which is why I still find it enjoyable even to this day.

Parallels - http://www.truploader.com/view/635902
A piece I spent much longer on, but never really ironed out all the glitches. I really liked the concept of the game, so I spent a long time trying to get it to be the best that it could be. I got it to the point where it was fun to play, at least, but never to the point where it was really up to par with the other flash games online at the time. I later went on to start redesigning the engine to make it more solid (and have a nicer art style) but I ended up getting busy with school, and then moving on to audio instead of computer programming. - http://www.truploader.com/view/523778

NOTE: If any of these pages don't load for you at first, just let them sit for a minute or two. The site they're being hosted on is really old, and when I made the games I didn't know enough about coding to be able to set up a loading screen. Razz

Those are epic! You did that with Javascript? Or C++ or something? (My game making has never been able to pass Stencyl... :p

Those were pretty cool Garrett! I'll have to spend some more time doing them. Maybe you should make a C.F. game! Very Happy

Everything I worked on was on Adobe Flash, so I programmed it all in ActionScript 2.0. I took some courses on Javascript and a few lectures in Python, but I lost interest in coding because audio is way cooler. I actually originally had plans to make a TCF game, but again, I got bored of coding.

Have you tried using Stencyl? I enjoy it, and if I were to try, I could make games... Sooo.... Yeah. :p

I downloaded Stencyl. I'll give it a try.

Also I found out that Kongregate is still hosting Pixel Jumper. Go play it on there and try to beat my highscore. Very Happy (I'm listed on the high score page as "jesus_minime" and "jmgames". think you can be 3,700?
