Awesome interview Cas! I especially like the part about the "Dad Test". 3D shooter are getting increasingly dull and antisocial. I really do believe that 2D "classic gaming" will make a comeback sometime in the near future.

I think we've been fairly straight up about what we think of Java in the interview, and the game speaks for itself although he hasn't yet been able to play it... but even being as direct an monsyllabic as I can, no-one takes us seriously when we tell them it's Java!

Even our own Captain-Goatse has abandoned ship citing spurious reasons flying in the face of proper hard facts. What gives?

Cas,

Congrats on your exposure!  I can only hope I can get a reviewer or two to look at our game when the time comes.  You are a model to aspire after.  Wink

Are you finding a lot of resistance because of "the Java thing?"

Not resistance, mainly surprise, and sometimes a little incredulity.

I'll show 'em. You wait for the 10th.

Hurrah! Our first review!

He didn't have a bad thing to say about it. But I'd like to find out where we lost that 0.1 on the sound!

Great review!

But there is something that has sort of bugged me about the marketing of Alien Flux..
This quote from the review sums it up, "...the  first game ever programmed entirely using Java."

That's stretching it a bit don't you think?  It's far from the first and it's not ENTIRELY Java in the sense that it requires native code that is not part of the JRE.

I understand that all of the game logic is Java and I know how thin a layer LWJGL is, so it really is just a nit-pick..    Not that I particularily care.. but I'm just waiting for the day some mis-informed anti-java dumb dumb tries to say that you're "cheating"

"Alien Flux is Puppy Games’ first game, as well as the first game ever programmed entirely using Java."

shouldn't that at least been "...first commercial game..."  Grin

Anyways Java Games seems to be on the move into mainstream. Yesterday I overheard a couple of teenage girls, on the train home, discussing wich java game was the coolest on their mobile phones.

I, er, deliberately didn't nitpick on that one because it's nearly true in so many ways Smiley Journos always manage to get one thing wrong somehow.

Hey princec,

since I tried your beta version I didn't take the time to tell you congratulations for your terrific game!  It's very cool even though I haven't been able to complete the first level yet (I think I misunderstood something in the rules)!  Kiss

great going cas! it seems like the prince may yet be king?

I noticed the article referred to you, as "one of the developers",
but were you not the ONLY developer?

anyway, its good to see your hard work pay off.

Nearly the only developer. There's Chaz, who did all the graphics, and that's a feat in itself. There's Brian Matzon and Elias Naur who toil over the LWJGL constantly to make A.F. work. When I'm rich I'm going to try and lure them into employment Tongue

Yeah I noticed that too. Work trickles onwards on the Mac port. We might have some assistance from yet another Mac developer who seems to have unexpected levels of enthusiasm for LWJGL.
