Pixel Art Challenge: Scenes from the Future


icon

You are invited to revisit our Tales from the Future cyberpunk challenge and pixel a mock up game scene based on both the palette and the title theme from the 3 winners of that challenge.

Your options are as follows:

Future W with this palette:


Failsafe with this palette:


Helldriver with this palette:


Each palette is attached to its own title and you are only allowed to use that single palette. Fewer colours may be used but no more than are listed.

You are encouraged to be original, whilst still invoking the spirit of cyberpunk classics such as Shadowrun, Syndicate, Beneath a Steel Sky, and other purely awesome games from days of yore.

Remember that "cyberpunk" is the main theme here.

Canvas Size - Exactly 320 x 240.
Colors - As listed above. Use as many colours from your chosen palette as you like.
Transarency - No.
Animation - Optional.



The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

I think the failsafe palette would be good for an oldschool RPG mockup. A nice "shop" scene with an illustration of a shabby dealer, offering illegal chips and holos...

RollerKingdom, look at jiipm's entry, an in-game screen based on the ref title screen.

Would like to enter - no way I'm going to be able to fill up a canvas size that big in time for the deadline.

*Actually it's not that big, but I wanted to do some animation*

I made a game screen for Future W. The palette was amazing to work on.


user
RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 5/27/2009 15:00

A game screen or can it be like a mock up i would make for the title screen ref.


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/27/2009 14:29

The palettes may be similar but the title screen ref is completely different in every way.

Remember its a game screen for the title screen references, k.

Thank you that kinda made more sense now lOl xD

Pick one of the games/palette options and make one mock up based on it. Essentially just create a fake in-game screenshot of one of those games listed.

continuing Panicbomber question, is it a scene that you would like to make for the game or a location or something?


user
PanicBomber (Level 6 Manager) @ 5/26/2009 12:28

user
Perkele (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/25/2009 13:00

Not sur, whether I'll participate in this challenge or not. If I should, I'd certainly choose Failsafe.


user
greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 5/25/2009 09:06

You people can go and... um... *cough* ...do something else.

This challenge earns a thumbs up from greeny!

Bubu (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/25/2009 08:45

Uhm afraid I'll pass on this one too unless I'm hit by a sudden inspiration... Can't see that happening tho...


user
tripnfelt (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 5/25/2009 08:19

i have no interest in entering this challenge either as it doesn't suit my style, but i'm still keen to see what other's come up with.


user
jiipm (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/25/2009 06:31
