October 2016

After some very positive feedback and various source code requests I've finally decided to go open source on JPlatformer! The game is now on GitHub where you'll find everything you need in order to download, run and modify the project. Please feel free to contribute and extend JPlatformer if you like. There is still plenty of room for improvements and new ideas. This is actually my first open source project, so that's something that I'm really excited about.

Facelift! After more than two years I felt the time had come to rework the look and feel of this website. The new design behaves better on desktop and mobile environments and allows for an improved user experience due to its simple and straightforward appearance. I hope you'll like it!

JPlatformer is alive! The remake of Another Platformer is written in Java and offers a variety of new features, such as platform independence, an overhauled user interface and an enhanced world editor. I have also replaced some sprites here and there and added new sound effects. Go ahead and check it out if you like!

December 2015

Update! Another Reminder is now available in version 1.2! The new version features a set of improvements, such as file attachments for tasks and a confirmation dialog before closing the application. Also, tasks can now be viewed and edited by double-clicking them in the task table.

Another Reminder is now online. This simple task manager for desktop environments was actually written as a small tool for personal use. As the project grew bigger I decided to draw some icons and publish it. Another Reminder is small, portable and runs cross-platform thanks to Java.

April 2015

And there goes another cover version of Slade's 1972 classic "Gudbuy T'Jane"... again! This greatly underrated song from their "Slayed?" album is probably my all time favorite, so I just had to record it once more as I haven't really been satisfied with my previous takes.

November 2014

The photo slideshow has been redesigned and extended. I felt the old gallery was kind of clunky and unwieldy to use so I've overhauled it quite a bit. The new slideshow is built in JavaScript and is more compact and user friendly. I've also uploaded a bunch of new pictures so feel free to have look!

September 2014

After nearly one and a half years I've finally managed to finish my platform game project Another Platformer. The game is written in C++ and uses the SFML library. I've also done all the graphics and sounds myself. Check it out and let me know what you think about it!

August 2014

This website is now online! A few weeks of messing around with HTML and CSS have brought up this web presence. It was great fun as I haven't done something like this before.
