Nyan Cat’s Explosive Adventure Through RainbowLand
This is a game I built in Java with my own engine, using OpenGL for rendering and LWJGL for input, music and access to the OpenGL functions.
You play as Nyan Cat, a cat trying to return home to The Interhoods which has been swarmed by ducks. Jump on them, dash through them, or grow giant and crush them under your huge paws – just make sure that the ducks leave your home alone!
The game has taken many months to build – originally I started building it in March 2011 using C++, however exams and schoolwork constantly got in the way. Starting October 11, I completely rewrote my engine and game into Java, mostly so I could learn how to use Java, and so the game could be placed in a webpage and made cross-platform.
