This week Åpen Sone at University of Oslo held their second game jam. Since I won the first one I was the lucky one to decide for the topic. I went for “geometry”. In the coming week you can see all the entries at http://sonengamejam.org
Since I knew the topic before hand I wasn’t allowed to participate, but I still made a small game. I call it “Snake in Space”. Clone the source-code from git or download the executable love file from here.
It is nearly a month since I’ve uploaded these images to my blog, but I kinda forgot all about them. So here they finally are. The orange Maxam Truggy you see is my new car. As you may know I have crashed my Maxam buggy quite some times. So it was either getting new parts (a lot of them, and some a bit expensive), or buy the last Maxam they had on storage (as they want to be rid of them). The inside is nearly identical to my old one, so now I have a ton of spare parts to use. Which is good, since last time I was out with my truggy I end up breaking the back hub carrier (the one that holds the wheel at bay). So I just took it from my old car. No need to wait for the mail with new parts.
You may also notice that there is a difference between the first and second picture. If you look at the hood you see a big black spot. That’s because my dad managed to drive into a container. He needs more practising.
Finally I’ve uploaded the image recap of Javazone 2013 day 1. I have a couple more from day 2 that will go in another post. Hopefully tonight or tomorrow. I’ve also written some text underneath.
Vianett, a company from Moss working with SMS had this awesome competition where you had to drive these Zenwheels micro cars around a home made track. It was a big challenge and a lot of fun.
You could also win a radio-controlled car (not the Zenwheel, but a cheaper one) if you lapped under 40-seconds. So after a couple of tries I managed a lap for 00:39:661 which put me in fourth overall. So I got another car later that night (I’ll post a photo of the cars in the next post about Javazone).
There where also a stand with a huge collection of old computer/Amiga games, which was cool. You could also play some of them.
Computas had the best food-stand if you ask me. It was a yoghurt, muesli and fruit bar.
In another stand (can’t remember the name) you could try this little robot, and try to shot down the wooden cubes (the ones standing on the black cubes). It was fun, but hard.
On my way home I spotted this blue and black bike. Pretty sweet!
Earlier this month I ate this wonderful home made hamburger. Don’t know why it got stuck in my draft-folder for this long. Enjoy the picture. PS: It was bigger then what it looks like.
My new work is taking me to Javazone! I’ve never beent here before, but I’ve heard a lot. So I’m ready for plenty of food and good speakers!
What you see are my new business cards that I got when I started in my first big job after finishing my Master education. I officially got the job in November, but I didn’t start before August 13th. So now I’ve worked three weeks, where two of them was about learning what kind of tools/frameworks they use for development, and how Ciber runs their business.
I’ve spent the last week at Vegvesenet which is probably where I’m going to spent my next coming year. The people are really nice, and I’m starting to grasp the system.
So wish me good luck!
