During a 15 hour car ride back home from Georgia to Connecticut, I decided I wanted to make a simple gui engine with java. After making the basics (a custom font engine,custom button support, ect), I really wanted to make it into a game.

~Left click = destroy blocks
~Right click = place blocks
~1-9 = change block selection
~A-D = move left/right
~W = jump
~E = change whether or not you're editing the foreground, or the background
~B = switch between inventory/play mode
~Esc = pause

~Completely custom gui engine
~grid based movement
~multiple block types
~Mobs (just for looks at the moment)
~Take the skin from anyone existing on Minecraft today (options menu)

its like terraria but doesnt suck (if you add mobs and crafting and what not, i dont like the look of terraria but i like this)

An update is coming soon, where I've changed the blocks in the players inventory, upgraded the sound system, and added TNT.

Stay tuned :)

It's pretty sweet, but it still misses some things. I can't do anything in the Options menu, besides changing my skin. I can't click the other options. And you should add random ores into the ground. And you should make the window resizable.
Still, for a game made in a few hours, it's awesome, considering the fact that I can't code for shit :P
Keep it up, I want to see the "released" version :P

As long as the creator doesn't sell it or plans to, there's no lawsuit.

See, this is kinda pointless, what with Terraria and all.

Nice job. It sounds fun. You should add pistols and whatnot, since I love 2D shooters.

No, this is not pointless, in fact with this project I have learned A LOT about java. This knowledge will definitely help me in future game development.

I just released an update.

What in this update!? You may ask.

All I've done is tried to make a sound garbage collector, so if you spammed the tnt like I always do, you wont run into an "Out of Memory" freeze.



Posted 14 August 2011 - 02:16 AM

Another update :P
  • I made water (like mcclassic water, not alpha/beta)
  • I completely fixed the sound system (no more non playing sounds AND no memory errors)
  • I added some new sounds
  • I made a customizable world size (check the options menu)



Posted 14 August 2011 - 04:59 AM

Another update :)
  • I added an inventory that can be acessed form the "B" key
  • I made the pause menu/inventory menu freeze the character
  • I added a bunch of blocks that can be used



Posted 14 August 2011 - 09:36 PM

I just released another update
  • complete lighting engine
  • Hell biome
  • new logo
  • more menu options
please note, that the game feels slower, it isn't lag, I just slowed down the frame update timer.



Posted 16 August 2011 - 03:17 PM

A friend and I wrote a website for this, you can now see what I'm doing with out blog, and in a few hours, post in our forums (once we finish writing them).




Posted 21 August 2011 - 05:10 AM

Tons of updates have been made :)
check them out on the website.
