I'm an Aussie highschool student in year 12. I code, I music, I play hockey, I code, I play TF2. Oh, and I do homework. I'm making CODENAME LITHIUM, a 2D platformer with a personal story to tell.

Well, hey there!

Hey! I decided to mirror some of the posts on my blog about CODENAME LITHIUM here on IndieDB. My personal blog is at Codenamelithium.wordpress.com

CODENAME LITHIUM is a 2D sidescroller puzzle/shooter with a personal story I want to tell. No details on the story yet! It's coded using the Unity3D engine for all the boring stuff like 3D audio, lighting, physics and collisions... but I've had to roll my own code to essentially modify the engine into something more friendly for 2D work (limiting physics and movement to only the x and y axis, for example). Obviously, I'm coding the game, and I'm also doing all the other things, like art and music, myself.

Here, have some media

Particles! :D

So now some stuff about me

I'm an Aussie highschool student, going into year 12. I code, I music, I play hockey, I code, I play TF2. Oh, and I do homework. Too much homework. I guess that's what you get when you do all the "hard" subjects in your senior school years.

What I'll post here

I won't mirror any personal posts here, just the posts regarding CODENAME LITHIUM.

And that about sums it all up

If you got all the way down here, thanks for doing so! It probably means that you're interested in CODENAME LIHIUM, which is awesome! :D

Feel free to leave a comment, I'll reply! Oh, and any feedback about the blog is most welcome. I'm still setting it up and making it look nice.

Geko out.

Hey Zed,

I had a look at your blog, and unfortunately I don't need a programmer. What I do need though, is a pixel artist. If you're interested, have a look here Moddb.com

I have some tips for you now.

1. If you want to get into game development, START NOW! I'm using Unity ( Unity3d.com ), which I taught myself how to use last year. It's dead easy, has great documentation, and has a great community!

2. Code, code, code and code. All the time. It really helps. Need to decide something but can't choose? Make a random number generator to pick it for you. Bored and got nothing to do? Look up some cool algorithms and code them up yourself.

Good luck with your programming future!

Geko

A pixel artist... Sounds interesting.

I'll take more of a look into it. PM me when you get the chance :)
