"Final Fantasy Tactics Advance - Ides of March Edition" mockup for the weekly challenge. Back in 44 BC handheld entertainment systems could only do three colors, you know.

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, especially knowing how bad I am with this dithering thing. It was really fun drawing this.

I have kept the original HUD design, so that could be considered ripped.

This is awesome. I like the vibes it emits. Very well done!

Volrak_Rutra (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/16/2015 10:58

i'd play it. especially considering the lack of TRPGs in modern gaming world.

HZoltan (Level 6 Major) @ 11/19/2014 12:21

Ez... zseniális :D

Otto (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 11/3/2013 11:58

So funny :-)


avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/25/2010 08:56

fun idea:) 

MMM103 (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/20/2010 17:53

This would be an excellent cutscene.

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/18/2010 15:01

HA!  awesome!

I disagree with Adarias about it being hard to read.  I find all the detail and shapes easier to read than most game shots that have many more colors.  Perhaps cos I'm used to similar looking games on the Amstrad CPC.  Anyways great work.  Something about this (perhaps the retro feel) makes me like this far, far more than other isometric games.

Jump back about ten replies. -DE- and ThereIsNoCure answer the question.

Great work. But did you man "Es-tu une brute?", like "Are you a beast?". Or "Et toi, Brutus!", like "Hey, you, Brutus"? 'Cause this doesn't mean anything.

!CE-9 (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/24/2007 08:52
whoa man, there's an idea, there's a spirit -- and then it's brilliantly done! great work!

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/8/2007 23:52

Great Idea, Great execution and Great style. The dithering is done really well as you don't lose focus on any of the characters

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 3/19/2007 05:20

Yaaaaay! I made it to the weekly showcase! Thanks everybody.

darkwave (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/19/2007 02:07
As Rome citizen and Nerd, I think this is the best entry!


Microradiation (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/18/2007 12:46
Ah.. if only Caesar leveled up his Mediator skills....
Love it, hits me full with nostalgia...
For three colors, there's so much personality in the sprites, too. If only more NES games had these graphics.... Thumbs up from me

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 3/17/2007 15:41
It's debatable.  Brutus being questioned by name ( Et tu, Brute ) is the more popular version, I believe.

fil_razorback (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 3/17/2007 13:16
Wasn't the latin sentence "Tu quoque, mi fili"  (You too, my son) ?

I Am Uh (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/17/2007 08:07
so little colors, such awsomeness.

-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 3/17/2007 07:09
It's in Latin, actually.
"Et tu Brute contra me?"

fil_razorback (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 3/17/2007 05:29
Nice piece =)

The only thing which is bothering me is the french message on the preview, it's grammatically wrong. If you wanted to say "And you, Brutus ?", it would be "Et toi, Brutus ?".  >.<

Pmac (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/16/2007 04:43
That's amazing, great work.

Scholz (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/15/2007 20:25
I really hope this wins.

Mirre (Level 8 Jellyfish) @ 3/15/2007 10:04
Wow. This is simply genious! I love everything about it, the humour, the details, the style, the colours. It's just perfect.

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 3/15/2007 09:43

Thank you all for the feedback!

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 3/14/2007 18:19

but that comes with the palette.  lvoe the concept, nicely done.

Pixel_Outlaw (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/14/2007 16:56
Looks great! This is really good to practice in today's million color world.

OMGFossil (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 3/14/2007 15:58

ceddo (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 3/14/2007 13:59
Man that's awesome. Would buy the game :)

Blick (Level 7 Captain) @ 3/14/2007 13:54
The palette makes me think of when I'd play a regular GameBoy game on the GameBoy Color, and it'd just color whatever the hell it wanted to apparently. Nice idea along with it.

pferguso (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 3/14/2007 13:43
Making Caesar's death look like a final fantasy tactics battle is awesome!  If I were Caesar, I would move into the corner so I couldn't be attacked from 2 sides...  That'll show those traitorous bastards who they're messing with...

infractus (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/14/2007 13:11
exlent ! a roman tactical ! mdr

Nitram (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/14/2007 12:44
Haha, genius :)

Stitchy (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 3/14/2007 11:31
Holy shit favorite. 8D This is a wonderfully original idea. You should totally do a full color version or something, too! <3

khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/14/2007 11:25
The portrait of Brutus I definitely love.

born (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/14/2007 11:06
can't belive what i'm looking at... 3 colors and so damn nice mock. absoultely brilliant. faved

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/14/2007 10:31
Great dithering and colors. Portriat is superb. Goooood work :)

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/14/2007 10:22
I was wondering, is it valid to post more than one challenge entry? I just feel like experimenting.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/14/2007 10:11
Brilliant. I don't think HUD is an issue, since it can be considered a tribute.

Vital (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/14/2007 10:00
I can say only one thing-faved^^

Noveroth (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/14/2007 09:58
Haha, Thats Genius!

And as for the Hud thing, i don't think it'll be an issue, your just using a resource to "Enhance" the feel of your work.
