First of all, I'd like to thank you guys for your really kind feedback on my Ludum Dare submission, Convey. I would have never thought I'd get 32nd place out of 2213 games, in Ludum Dare.
You guys are also responsible for getting me my first daily feature. So thank you! Your support means a lot! <3
And thank you Tom, as well, for putting Convey on the front page! I highly doubt the game would have gotten the rating it did without your help.
Attention game devs!
I made a simple site to help you quickly and easily test how well your textures tile in your browser! It's meant to be a convenient way to check for seamless tiling, and it's already helped quite a few people!
Just paste, drag and drop, or load the image into the site, and it instantly tiles it for you. Also, control the scale of the texture to see details or the big picture.
-- TextureTiler.com --
It works best in Firefox or Chrome, but does not support IE.
There's a Twitter page for it too, if you're interested in receiving update notices, or to send direct feedback on the site: Twitter.com/TextureTiler.
Lastly, I want to mention that my site is working properly again. For a few weeks it's been acting slightly odd... but now it's back to normal. Sorry to everyone that was inconvenienced by the issues; it is definitely my top priority to keep my content running and in healthy condition! :D
Mine Blocks 1.25 was released yesterday! I hope you enjoy!

Wow it was amazing to meet all of you talented, awesome people at the Newgrounds Pico Day Party! I really enjoyed the experience. I hope to do it again next year, definitely. :D
So, as some of you saw at the party, I was working on my Ludum Dare submission. I finished the prototype. Feel free to check it out below. I will want to post it on Newgrounds when I'm actually done with the game, which is probably going to be quite a while.
Thanks to everyone, especially Tom and his crew, for creating such an amazing community. Happy Pico day! <3
Wow, March has been a crazy milestone month for me!
Your support means a lot to me, and I appreciate having friends and fans as amazing as you guys!
While I'm at it, I might as well give you a short update on everything:
- As of lately, I've been working on multiplayer for Mine Blocks 2. There is some significant progress, but there's still a really long way to go. Most of my friends run it perfectly, although some randomly disconnect... or other strange stuff happens.
- I've also been working on Mine Blocks. Unfortunately, the update is going really slow due to some big changes I've made to redstone and collision. This update will probably take a lot of time.
- Did you hear about FLIPTRIS, my most recent release? I will eventually get around to adding medals and high scores to it, and uploading it to Newgrounds. I've been preoccupied though :)
- I'm making new tracks too! They sound pretty good! I'll get around to finishing and uploading them soon, as well.
- I've started some other cool projects, but they're going pretty slow as well. Everything is slow, and it's annoying me right now. Don't worry though, I'm not programming any less than I used to :) So, please stay tuned!
So that's the scoop! Thank you for everything! Comment, message, and friend me - I'd love to hear from you :)
Hello my friends!
It's actually been a while since I've posted on here (again). Sorry :D
So, I should have mentioned this earlier, but I've made a new game called FLIPTRIS, but I haven't posted it on Newgrounds yet because I want to get medals in the game first. And, sorry, I'm just not in the mood to get around to it at the moment.
You may play it on my site here!
Many of you are probably wondering about Mine Blocks, so I'm more than happy to announce a few things!
First of all, I need to notify you guys that there are a couple instabilities in the last update, which I apologize for :(
- Zombies and skeletons crash the game underground, during the day. To fix this, turn the game on peaceful mode. Sorry! It was a simple coding typo that I should have noticed before I uploaded. :\
- Running into a skeleton's arrow inside of a block locks your X (and maybe Y?), so you can't move. A strange way to fix this is to either hop into a raft, or ride a pig.
Second of all, if you didn't notice on Twitter, Facebook, or Reddit, it is confirmed that there are going to be half slabs and stairs in the next update!!! :D
They are fancy, indeed, however the new collision engine may need some tweaking in the future. It's not 100% perfect, I don't think, but it's a long step ahead of the old one :)
I'm currently working on a new game. I have a picture of it below ;)
Yes, I know I haven't posted anything in a long time, mainly because I keep updated on Twitter, Facebook, my site, and Tumblr...
There was another new update for Mine Blocks for Christmas (and/or the holidays)!
Dozens of bugs were fixed along with many new features and tweaks!
Here's the full changelog: 1.24 Changelog
Ludum Dare #25 happened not too long ago also! I made a game where you're a dragon terrorizing a village in order to become a boss! I'm not releasing the game on Newgrounds or my website yet because I want to make it a full game.
Here's a link to the post if you want to play:
Mine Blocks 2 had a little bit of progress as well. It's version is alpha 0.5. There's now survival mode. In fact, you can actually build a house, get diamond ore, slay zombies, plant trees, and swim in lava :)
Mine Blocks 2.0.5
Coming soon is texture packs and a much faster chunk engine!
Speaking of Mine Blocks 2, I've been fooling around with multiplayer. Progress is minimal, but I can work on it ;)
Happy New Year!
Happy Halloween Newgrounds!
My treat to all of you is an update to Mine Blocks! After 3 months of work, Mine Blocks has finally been updated to 1.23.
The main new feature is the ability to go to the ender and defeat the ender dragon.
Besides that, there are dozens of new features and hundreds of bug fixes. Here's the complete change log:
Mine Blocks 1.23 Change Log (Tumblr)
I sure hope you enjoy the update, and I'll be posting a patch update later today of the small bugs that are found.
Here's a wrap up of what's going on:
My Ludum Dare game was "I'd Change the World for You" made in 25.5 hours.
It was on the homepage. People spammed with with useless reviews about boring and lag.
Play it on Newgrounds.com
Don't play it on Newgrounds because it lags too much. If you play it on my website it runs faster. Use Firefox also.
Play it on Zanzlanz.com
A bug was fixed in the 'strongholds' of Mine Blocks (which wasn't released yet) so now things have been going a lot faster for the next update. There's still a ton left to do for the next update, and update requests are still pouring in. They'll have to wait.
New track "Mountain of Flame." This is not yet released for download.
Mountain of Flame
I've made a small map generator. You can check it out:
I also made a quick tutorial for learning AS3 once you already know AS2:
Lastly, Mine Blocks 2 now has a Twitter profile:
Ludum Dare is on Friday the 24th.... TODAY!
I'm very excited to take part in my first full Ludum Dare. I've made 2 games in the past for miniLD: Human Apocalypse and Lab Lights.
I hope to make a really epic platformer this time. I anticipate the theme being "Abandoned" but who knows... it might be "1000 Kittens."
Wish me luck!
