Indie game developer residing in central Sweden. I mostly develop for HTML5/JavaScript these days, but I've been known to dabble with both Java and C++.
Started out as a graphics artist over at Spell of Play but as the guys have gotten busy families SoP has gone through some serious inactivity lately. So these days I'm doing stuff solo. I am on the lookout for a partner to help me some with graphics/sound so if you're such a person don't hesitate to send me a mess!

Introduction I guess

Sawtan Blog

Heya fellow gamers!

I first found out about Desura when I purchased a alpha key to the game Xenonauts, and now I'm feeling more and more comfy with this place, I've even added some titles to my desura games library, Project Zomboid being amongst them!

I myself is a indie game developer, so I find the community implementation here pretty rad and great for my work in general, I really want to start knowing more indie developers, and this place seems like a great place to start out! I'm also pondering on perhaps trying to release a title or two through Desura in the future, I just need to wrap my head around what to produce. Lately I've been doing a lot of HTML5 stuff, but I have just can't figure out how to make that profitable in the end, unless I put down a lot of cash on server space and make a Facebook app out of it. So after a while I just came to the conclusion that standalone apps is the way to go, and I've been working in Java before (mostly with Slick2d) so that became the natural choice.

Now I've started writing a primitive isometric map engine that I will work on for a while and see what I can do with. Hopefully I'll get something solid to work on and I'll tell ye all about it! For now I think this will have to do as an introductory post, check out my image gallery for some screen-shots of my games and don't be afraid to drop me a line! On the lookout for fellow indies to talk to! :D
