Proxima 3 - Red Dwarf Star

It's probably time to give a quick tease of one of my own personal Amiga AGA projects.

"ProXima 3 - Red Dwarf Star" is a Vertical scrolling Shoot Em Up.

The environment is partly destructible as well as the bigger enemies, each enemy has a flash/hit state.

Some Tech specs:
- 3 layer parallax
- 6 levels (all choosable except the final level)
- One player (at the moment)
- 16 colour foreground/enemies, 4 colours for each parallax and 16 colours for player.
- Enhanced copper effects.


This game is the 3rd and final installment, ProXima 1 and 2 games are planned in the future.

Amiga - "Copic, Cubes and Coffee"

This A3 design inspired by Amiga


First time use of these Copic pens and as im working on some Isometric game graphics 2D/3D it seemed fitting to have a go with these.

Amiga Forever :)

Patreon Site - coming soon


I'm a big fan of the Amiga and have worked hard in contributing for our favourite computer over many years including back to the Amiga Inc days. My focus is either graphic design or game development.  The most recent published games are Dots Adventures and RESHOOT.

I would like to dedicate more of my spare time developing for the Amiga Platform, Classic and NG. We need as many developers as possible.  


Once the site is open you will get a sneak peek into behind the scenes of project

- Access to source files (2d, 3d)
- PPaint Tips and tutorials
- Sketchblock Tips and tutorials
- Work in progress of game development
- Shelved projects (games - till we find a developer)
- Observations and suggestions of improving AmigaOS
- Other fun projects for Patreons only
- Developed concepts for Amiga Inc that got shelved
- Insight to who I'm also helping or have helped in the Amiga scene, past and current
- Open to other suggestions and projects

So for the cost of a cup of coffee I hope you will support me, more info coming soon :)







Hans 3D Survey - Game Development on AmigaOS


If your interested in 3D on the AmigaOS platform please take the time and fill in Hans de Ruiters Survey. Below is his message (from Amigans.net website) with links to survey and tutorials.


"I'd like to help people take advantage of the new graphics capabilities that Warp3D Nova provides. So far I've written a few tutorials on using Warp3D Nova directly

Now that the OpenGL ES 2 wrapper has been released, I'm wondering if there's interest in learning how to use that. I've created a short survey to get an idea of what people want.So, if you're interested in learning shader based graphics on AmigaOS, hop over to the survey and give your opinion: link"Hans
P.S., Feel free to share this elsewhere. The more responses the better.

The very early start of a new 3D level for an AmigaOS platform game and in future posts I will describe how the game works in more detail.  The game is a mixture of concepts including Marble Madness, Spindizzy, Mindcraft, and others.

Any suggestions of Game title always welcome?
