About me

Hi, My name is Jakub and I'm a 18-year-old programmer.

My journey with programming started 7 years ago, when I first became interested in how games are made. I started searching for information like: „How to learn programming?” or „The first step in programming?” on the Internet. I was so interested in it, that I decided to buy my first Programmer’s Book – „C++ Programming: Visual QuickStart Guide by Larry Ullman & Andreas Signer”. I would highly recommend it!

After reading the book, I started coding simple console programs like: calculators, text-games etc. I made a decision to buy a new book to improve my programming skills.

I learned, learned, learned.
I felt that was not only a hobby or a passion. I knew it was a part of my life.


Voxelaxy

Voxelaxy (combination of two words: Voxel & Galaxy)

What is Voxelaxy

Voxelaxy is a Voxel-graphic designed game about an astronaut, whose spaceship has been destroyed on an unknown planet.

The Astronaut tries to survive there. He must be careful all the time, because he doesn't know anything about that land. He is not sure, he is alone.

Gameplay


To survive, the player:

  • Gather minerals which can be used to craft items such as oxygen or steel etc.
  • Gather resources from meteors.
  • Build special machines to make weapons or ammo.
  • Build shelters.
  • Fight with aliens.
  • Protect the territory

Minerals

Game is still in development, so count of minerals isn't so extended :)

Pimerite - It will be one of the rarest minerals in game. Its value is very high.

Oxydrite - It will be the most popular mineral in the game. You use that and:

  • some part of energy to create oxygen
  • another mineral(not available now) to create water.


Greenum - I cannot tell you now, where it will be useful, but it looks like a turnip.

Furnace


On the second video I show you, how the furnace works in Voxelaxy.

I decide to make it more realistic than usual Equipment and Slots. I've created special place near the furnace, where player drops minerals. The Furnace recognizes them and if it can process it, take energy and do it. If an item cannot be processed, the furnace drops it :)

Systems


Breathing

Player loses 1 point of oxygen every 7 seconds.

It means, that after 1750 seconds(about 0,5h), you won’t be able to breathe.

Lack of breath leads to loss of 25 HP per second.

To prevent it, you must:

  • Gather special minerals.
  • Use a machine to process them to oxygen (At this moment, I’m not able to tell you, how it will work).
  • Refuel your oxygen tank.

It should appeal to you much more than a traditional regeneration in games like: „Stay for 1 minute and in an unknown way, game will regenerate your level of oxygen. Say no to lack of realism in games!

I hope you enjoyed this part of information.

It would be nice, if you could share this info with your friends :)
