Hi guys, my first post on here so hope i posted in the correct place.

OK so my question is, as you can see by the title, do any of you know of any good tutorials?
I am not new to Java Programming, but i am new to game programming - I've asked for books for x-mas but wanted to get the basics under my belt before then. Smiley
I Really enjoy programming and wanted to give Game Programming a go  Smiley

Any Suggestions will be very great-full; Hopefully for other people too.

As far as learning basic java or game specifics? There are plenty, but narrowing the field helps find what you need Smiley

Busy between school, work, life, games, programming and general screwing around.
If you'd like some pixel art for your game, send me a PM, i'll see what I can do.

Google/find these:

Coke and Code tutorials (all of them are a good read)
Killer game programming in java (some parts are outdated/extremely boring and unhelpful)
The articles and tutorials section in the forums (contains some good points for beginners. Read GAME LOOPS!)
Somewhere in the gameplay/game design board there is a topic called "Your first game (adventure/rpg like)". Some parts are terrible, but the thing to get from that is the actual framework.

Hopefully that is enough to start.

Once you've learnt how to draw things, how to handle input, (you already know the java language), and I/O functions, everything else is design. (I think)

If you want to learn java, then check this out: But if you know java, and you want to learn game programming, then check out java2d, lwjgl (you might not know this, but minecraft was made using lwjgl  Smiley ), JMonkeyEngine or slick2d.
