Hello, my name is Joshua Smyth and I'm from Auckland, New Zealand - Lord of the Rings, Hobbits, yadda, yadda.
I'm 25 years old, which is why I should hurry up and graduate and get a real job
Unlike most of my university friends, instead of working over the summer I thought it would be fun to sit on the dole and have a go at programming a game. So over the past 3 months I've been programming my first Roguelike Caverns of Underkeep
I'm due back in class in one month's time so I have to wrap Caverns up soon. But I'm pretty sure I'll get the game done before then.
My favoriate roguelike game is Castle of the Winds (which is pretty obvious if you've played Caverns) I've tried to get into Nethack and some of the other ones but I just can't remember which key does what damnit! So I guess my current interests are in improving roguelike UI - I like alot of what Slashie has done with his games.
I have lots of ideas for games, both roguelike and not, and I'm happy to work on them in my free time for the next few years while I save money to start my own studio! Mawhaha!
I also want to spend more time developing my artistic side, drawing and that kind of stuff.
