SvajpSvajp is a puzzle game where you draw your own blocks with your smart phone.
The block will fall down and hopefully fit with the board. When a full row is filled that row will be destroyed. When all the blocks are destroyed the level is cleared. The game needs you to focus and think of how each block should be drawn to fit the board.
For now it's only a Android game but there might be a iPhone version if there is enough interest. I also have a lot of ideas to add if the game gets popular.
- Svajp (Currently)
- Unnamed strategy game (Currently paused)
- Breakout clone ( a very early game with some bugs. Don’t judge 🙂
- Skejter (My first ludumdare game)
- AnglerFish My submission to ludum dare 34
For all the projects above I been using libGDX
HistoryBeen working on this game for 3 years. But the last couple of months I spent full time on the game, resulting in the stress level has risen since I really need to find some contract work instead. But this felt like the last chance to actually make a complete game from start to finish. If I didn’t released this I would probably give up on my old dream to create a completed game. I want to have something to look back at that is not just some unfinished project on my computer. I also want to actually finish a game till the end. My old coworkers has even stopped asking about the game since it was so long ago that I actually did quit my regular job to be able to create a game. But FINALLY it’s finished. :)
PersonalI live in Åre Sweden which is most famous to be Swedens biggest ski resort. Previously I been living in Gothenburg Sweden, but the love for snow, nature and mountains got me moving up here in 2017. But also that the girl I meet lived here :) I been working as a programmer since 2010 and took the step to quit my job 2015 to be able to create a computer game. The first game was far too big to for just one person, but I learned a lot from it and used my new knowledge to create Svajp instead.
Why it took 3 years to just make a simple puzzle game
PicturesFeel free to use these screenshots below unmodified to help promote the game.
Knowledge learnt, retrospectiveIt's not the coding that takes time, it's the other stuff.
I have been working 9 years as a software developer in several different areas such embedded, android, web backend, etc. For the moment I'm looking for contract work.
I have always been fascinated by graphic and game programming in my spare time. But to be able to do anything on a larger scale, I did quit my regular job to be able to make a completed game. But since the game market is so flooded with games I don't count on making it as a indie game developer.
To finance my own product I’m looking for work as a consultant. So if you are in need of a programmer send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org. Check my LinkedIn page for more info about my experience and previous assignments.
