I've been programming in Java off and on for about 3 years now. My skills are not that good but I pushed on to try and make a game. After many too ambitious projects, and many I just stopped caring about I finally finished my first game.
It is a simple top down shooter, I tried to make the game easy enough for people to casually enjoy, yet hard enough where you don't have to play for an hour before you die just because you are bored.
I made the game using the GTGE engine.
The game uses webstart and runs in OpenGL - I know it works in Windows but cannot test it on Mac or Linux, but they should work.... I hope.
