Title/loader picture for the C64 game "Rescuing Orc": 

Commodore 64 multicolour bitmap mode: wide pixels, 3 colours (plus 1 global background colour) per 4x8 pixel block, from a fixed palette of 16 colours.

This is what it looks like with the actual C64 PAL aspect ratio and CRT filter: 
"When your best friend Orc (an orc, coincidentally) didn't show up for tea after a couple of weeks, it was pretty clear something had happened to him. This is a mission to find what happened to your friend, starting deep in the Black Forest and exploring 5 different areas, from the perilous Rocky Mountains to the dark corridors of Bluestone Keep."

Stupidly masterful use of the C64 colours!

I want to play games where all art is done by you!

Super lovely. Great details all over the place. I especially like the slimes, purple wizard ghost thing and the signature :)
