Working on OpenLieroX at CCC 07 :-)
Once upon a time there was a 14 years old boy who was terribly bored one afternoon. He was looking for some entertainment on the Internet and his eye sudently stopped at LieroX.
He downloaded it, double-clicked LieroX.exe and it crashed his computer. Thanks God he didn't give up and tried to run it again, successfully this time.
Few months later he found out what "addictive" meant in the LieroX download description. Spending many hours practising with other players he was getting annoyed by the crashes and other bugs in LieroX.
Later, when LieroX became open source he bought a C++ book and dived into the coding...
I am a 20-year-old programmer from a little country in the Central Europe. My real name is Karel Petránek.
In late 2006 me and albert founded the OpenLieroX project which is a successor of LieroX, a simple, yet addictive 2-D shooter game.
In august 2007 I together with albert represented the OpenLieroX project on the Chaos Communication Camp in Finowfurt, Germany.
In the code I mostly focus on the user interface and graphics part and closely co-work with our main designer, Michal Futer.
