My name is John Crandell and game design / programming is a hobby of mine. I am 30 years old and live in the DC Metro area.
At a very young age we had both an Atari 2600 and Atari 5200 in our house, I would play Popeye and Defender with my mother and father. When I was five, I received my first NES along with four games; Life Force, Rad Racer II, Super Mario Bros. and one other I cannot think of.
Eventually I was introduced to The Legend of Zelda while at my future step-mothers house. I remember there being a small TV on a table in the kitchen, that was where I first saw and played the game.
This project is something I have wanted to do for some time, but I have never felt I have the skills needed to accomplish my goal. With the tutorials and videos that are available online, I am confident that with the tools I have I can realize my goal.
A quick video comparison instead of just the stills:
Thanks for stopping by.
