I love how much the green pops.

Stumbled across this today, I remember playing this game when I was little. You were some of my childhood inspiration, seeing this made my day.

 Game is so hard, but pretty fun. Awesome graphics.

This game is amazing, I love the technology in the background and the colors are really well chosen

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 6/22/2009 06:38

It is true that I am not original author of this picture. It was crafted thousands years ago by "HIM", son of everburning lemon ice tea and Megalolord of our Purple Masters from dark planes of Malevus Counterfeyi ! Hail to our Purple Masters !!

arkan-ark (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/24/2009 08:16

what, so you actually made the title screen for that game, awesome! :D

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 3/6/2009 12:46

Provide proof rather than accusing with nothing to back youself up. You might also be interested in trying to use functional grammar too, as an added bonus.

This title screen is so awesome, lotta fun to look at! There are several lessons I can take from this thing. Outstanding! I was amazed to find you here in PJ after having played the game months ago.

subk (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/20/2008 06:22
the acid factory picture you were looking at want made by HIM, it was made by the makers of the game. dont belive the guy that made this picture!!!

Ransom.00 (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 4/13/2008 11:32
WOW!! Is this REAL ?? Unbelievable cool picture

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/19/2007 02:00
Amazing piece of index painting. Good job,

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/8/2007 03:35
Regarding BG and FG division...
The most common method to make the FG stand out is to use the so-called air-perspective, that is, to make the features in the back a bit bluer and less cotrast-y the further they are away.
A good example of this is Buloght's winter scouts.
Hope this helps.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/21/2007 07:44
This one's a killer!
Love the boss, love the love that's in every little bit of scenery!

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 1/11/2007 15:43
Really cool. So much funny details, nice dithering and colours.

ceddo (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/9/2007 11:06
Oh my god. You invaded all three top pixel art slots!!! And the worst thing is... you deserved it! Fantastic work and style. Favvved!

nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 1/9/2007 07:33
Ah, fantastic work, as always, Jan!  It's always good to see your highly-rendered splash screens! :)  I especially love the depth in this piece...nice attention to fg/mg/bg dimension.

Luca (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/7/2007 05:35
awsome,i play the game i dont like that type of games but graphic is so cool

Gunstar_Red (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/4/2007 03:09
Went smoothly for me as well, working with Francesco was great just the kind of programmer i like to work with, lots of feedback and work in progress builds for me to see my artwork in action.

Was great to have worked with you both on something!

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 1/3/2007 15:17
Mykola: Im sorry it ended bad for you with Minicip. 
For me the cooperation was smooth. We easily agreed on price and they even accepted some of my schedule issues arised due to my constant overworkednes (is it actual word? :).

For the rates - I checked your pj and web portfolio and theres not whole lot to see yet.
So, while its surely good to aim high, maybe you should consider that you are relatively new to the business (or at least it seem so) and thus can't get the money Henk Nieborg's gettin. ;)
(And sadly neither can I :)
So cheer up and come work with us at PixelLive for 1 penny and slice of bread per day ;)

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/3/2007 13:39

The nature of the outsourcing with the company was such, that while I worked on it, I had no idea who the other artists were, as I understand neither did Gunstar and Riva :).

My input was really small tho, I only did some objects like the battery and a platform or two ingame. Besides I worked literally for like a week, and then we had a 'dispute' over the hourly rate (not to mention I only later realized that I was basically lowballed with the rate we agreed upon..)..

So it all ended on a sour note. I hope other artists had better experience with the company. The only thing I learned from my experience is not to settle for hourly rates when telecommuting and go for pay-per-piece basis.

And also I had to educate myself on the average pixel artists hourly rates, and ALSO the minimum wage in other countries LOL  :D.

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 1/3/2007 10:01
sorry for doublepost (why cant my own msgs be edited?):

BlackEye - yeah you right, but it was +- intentional.
If you look at Gunstars(?) style for ingame characters - its kind of cartoony, low-col.
And Miniclip pushed that the characters on the ilustration are well recoginzable.
So I originaly wanted them just 'outline and color'. Had them done so in 1st version.
Then I got lost in pixelling and kind of ended up somewhere in the middle with style ;)

Anyway there are things that bother me more in the image then this. Like - I think its a bit over-featured. I offten have problem with making good FG-BG composition (layout) for fullscreen images.
Dont some1 have some digestable book \ tut for that btw ? ;)

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 1/3/2007 09:37
Gustar - So it was YOU who done the ingame ? Avesome!

I sent my regards and kudos for you (and anybody else who worked on the rest of the game gfx) via Francesco from Miniclip. Dunno if they got to you all thought.

Any way I love your work on the game! ;)

BTW its funny we worked on game together and didnt even know. :) I guess it might happen with outsourcing a lot.
What else you worked on lately ?

Gunstar_Red (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/3/2007 09:10
Of course I've seen this a while back while I was working on the actual game, loved it back then still love it now, really great to see my characters realised by another artist.

milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/3/2007 06:54
I always thought that Gunstar_Red, or Gry from Army of trolls did the game graphics (must have just been ingame ones tho). Guess there must have been quite a few comissioned artists if Mykola worked on it aswell...ohh teamwork, exciting.  This is awsome by the way, so much detail, you've managed to include everything. fav

horcy (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/3/2007 02:48
Another winner from Riva. Only your thumpnail is out of scale

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/3/2007 01:03

Looks great!

Funny thing is, I did some sprites for this game, but my gig was rather kind of short :D even tho I got paid.

BlackEye (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/2/2007 23:16
you did such a great job on the background - lovely details and superb color choice, but the characters lack detail and colors. especially the red suit of the main character, one or two more colors would do better (look at the highlight and compare to the background) - same to the hair

anyways, great artwork

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/2/2007 16:00
What tomic said. I am glad you have submitted something again

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/2/2007 15:55

wow, yes! this perfectly is after my fancy.. full of nice details (like the tentacle in thar radioactive barrel, oh i love tentacles) and clean, not overdithered style

i think i've found my alltime favourite.. or at least one of my two =P
