TLDR; I started a new company called Indienamic to build awareness for that brand so that I can build a community around the games I’m building. And, if you want to earn money from your games you have to cultivate that community, make high quality games, make people happy and do the number game. 15K visitors a month is not enough. A while ago I said I decided to kickstart my dream to become an independent game developer (indie game developer). In the incubator week I took a step back and reflected on how I… Read Article →

In my previous post I announced the start of my dream: building my own game. In this post I will elaborate further about the goal I have set and how I intent to reach that goal. Writing a game is, like any project, quite a challenge. It is a continuous process of ‘zooming in’ (doing the actual work) and ‘zooming out’ (keeping an eye on the bigger picture). Only that way you can be sure you reach the goal in the most efficient manner. Like any project, to keep it clear what to do, there… Read Article →

In my previous post I have described a way to compile your project with a Maven style like project structure. Using that as basis I am busy rewriting my project Dune II – The Maker.

Do note: In reality I am much… Read Article →

Just posting “it does not work” with some vague description is not enough. It really helps to tell how you stepped through the problem, post snippets of code and so forth. If you are able to… Read Article →

Someone mentioned a mocking framework called Mockito some time ago to me. I am familiar with mocking frameworks, as I work with EasyMock quite a lot. I really like EasyMock, but I am curious about Mockito. I thought of trying it out a bit and write down my experiences along with a comparison with EasyMock. This is by all means not a very in-depth comparison, but I did find out some interesting things. In order to test out the mocking frameworks I have set up some code in place to test. The code to be… Read Article →
