Hey there,
My name is vanZeben and this is a Youtube series that I have created to teach people how to develop several types of games in Java with only core JDK libraries. This particular series will teach you how to create a 2D top-down game engine that will later be used to create various types of games based off of it. Feel free to check it out if you're interested.

If you have any suggestions on how to do these videos or things that I have not explained fully enough or things that I have explained incorrectly, feel free to let me know and I can see what I can do about it.

I decided not to embed the videos, as the post would become a lot larger then it needs to be

Episode List:
Episode 1: Setting up the JFrame
Episode 2: Creating a Sprite Sheet
Episode 3: Displaying the Sprite Sheet
Episode 4: Basic Input Handling
Episode 5: Colour & Rendering Optimisation
Episode 6: Mirroring the Sprites
Episode 7: Rendering some Fonts
Episode 8: Level/Tile Development
Episode 9: Making our first mob, the Player!

Thanks a lot for sharing this, it looks really cool.
However, the youtube video is blurred and it's impossible to see the text. I was wondering if you had some better quality footage available (in case the loss of quality was caused by youtube) ?
Also, a noobish question : what IDE are you using ?
