Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.



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

Guys, there are at least 6 instuments rotting in the public queue. Get those votes out please.

A small sprite? Maybe I will enter a challenge for once.

If it fits inside your palm, it's small enough.

And what about different resolutions and screen sizes? 


user
Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/24/2017 08:21

The scale ratio of your sprite will be 1:1 Jamie

How will one know it's tiny without something else for scale comparison?

Only 1 Instrument and just the instrument


user

Can we make a character playing it or just the instrument by itself?


user

Can we have multiple instruments?


user

I guess so? I don't think electrical instruments are excluded. Theremin or keyboards are totally instruments. Maybe laptops are not admissible, but I think Skrillex is not on PJ. :P

Every instrument you can think of even an otamatone


user

Do the otamatone counts as musical instrument???


user
Eggy (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/23/2017 10:55

So... Can we do any instrument we like (besides a violin) or are we limited to the guitar/piano?


user

Thanks Daruda. I like it too that the challenge has a smaller scale this time. :)

@osmasker, you simply have to do a piece without background. just the piece with around trasparency in a 64x64 tile. 

pretty cool  challenge, it's small enough that it's doable!

I have probably the most stupid question, but "Transparency: Required"; does this mean that we are not allowed to make a background, and therefore make everything around the instrument trasparent? Thanks in advance <3
