I am a versatile software developer, so my main focus is software design and implementation ('programming'). I do however also have hobby-experience doing some Blender 3D modeling and level design for various games!

Yesterday the Steam summer sale started for this year. As most of you probably know, it came with the Monster Summer Game, a clicker game meant to be "a bit of an homage to those [Cookie Clicker, AdVenture Capitalist and Clicker Heroes] clicker games". I have never played any of those games because I think clicker games are terribly boring, but I have heard of them because some of my friends have been playing them. I was wondering when Cookie Clicker was released so I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it turns out it was released in August of 2013.

Suddenly I realized: in April of 2012 I created Level up: The Game as a joke, which is basically the most simple form of a clicker game. Apparently these clicker games are actually 'a thing' nowadays. If I had considered creating a web-game out of my own joke, perhaps my game would have gotten as popular as Cookie Clicker was, and I would have started a whole genre! :( If only I had seen that people are actually capable of liking such a horrible concept!

Of course I know it is not that simple. Timing, design and connections also play a large role in becoming known on the internet. Still, I will never know if I could perhaps have made something 'big' back then...


Oh, and something else entirely: I have almost finished my studies! Waheee!

Pace sped up shortly a while back but now its at its regular slow speed ^^
Still working on the campaign, and we now have clonewarrior modeling for us on the side. once we got enough showcase models and ingame pics, we will probably set up a game page for it.

The piece im creating for Astartes productions, will be more of a title screen than a concept of characters.

O'neil and Ramus will be in the scene, which in essence, could be used as concepts for those chars.

rather bumpy. We have switched over to the UDK now and one of our mappers Harddrive got fried. Still working on the story. WIP of our concept has arrived in the group Moddb.com its looking good!
Still waiting for some good models though -.- had famous join short while ago, and we are still waiting for the titan model from our first modeler.
other than that, we're making progress ^^

we have got a basic idea of what we want:
Will be a third-person shooter, based mostly around multiplayer.
Gametypes will be Campaign and Warfare (warfare contains CTF, Deathmatch etc)
Players will be able to play tactical, Assault, Scout and Terminator Marines aswell as dreadnoughts. In Warfare there will even be vehicles.
Still writing on the Campaign, but if all goes well, it will have an enjoyable length ^^
We still need to find someone to do the AI for us, to get working bots into the Warfare mode, but that can wait for now.
Luka (2nd Mapper) is showing the most enthusiasm towards our group at the moment, trying to rally as many as possible for our cause XD
and the Concept is still WIP. that picture will be a part of the landing of Khoronus IV, which will be a complete painting featuring the marines landing, a plasma cannon in the background shooting down a thunderhawk, and 100s of drop pods falling into the atmosphere! To tell the truth, i can barely await the final concept ^^
I havent heard from one of our modellers, Kalenov in a while. He said he was busy working on the titan and i haven't heard from him since last year =P
well, thats about everything going on at the moment ^^
