Pixel Art Challenge: Colossal Cave Anniversary


icon

This year allegedly marks the 35th anniversary of the original Colossal Cave Adventure - the first text adventure/interactive fiction and progenitor of the adventure game genre.

So, the challenge this week is to make a pixel art interpretation of the game's opening lines:
 

YOU ARE STANDING AT THE END OF A ROAD BEFORE A SMALL BRICK BUILDING.
AROUND YOU IS A FOREST. A SMALL STREAM FLOWS OUT OF THE BUILDING AND
DOWN A GULLY.


Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Unrestricted.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.



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

I'd like to perform my interpretation from inside Carl Sagan's brain. The dawning of the Milky Way.

 This is a great opportunity for people to show off their 20 col. palettes.

Having to use your own imagination to picture a scene is one of the reasons I still occasionally play text adventures.

 I'll try my hand at isometric stuff this time. Never been good at it, so this is a good time to get some practice :)

I recently read about this when I had come across an article on building hacking and urban exploration. The part about vadding is interesting.
