well, I need to move on in the project, so I call this thing done...
I'm not sure how much time and effort went into the individual pieces, but it's quite a bit.

there are 8 easters in it, that you can find if you look closely. the easters are:
Larwicks Rustbug,
Mashpotatos Kitty,
Metarus Tarro,
jalonsos Scarab,
hidden phrase,
and pixel-joint nerd...

all easters are in different positions than in the WIP thread...
happy searching!

MisterQwerty (Level 1 Private) @ 7/26/2008 13:41
Can I say where they are?
squid, star (metarus tarro?), (no idea what the rustbug looks like), scarab, skull (pj-nerd),

cerealkiller54 (Level 6 Made) @ 11/18/2007 08:49

Bjrotas (Level 1 Gangster) @ 11/17/2007 09:19
awesome pixelart

Shadow-gamer (Level 5 Captain) @ 11/16/2007 13:50
I think I found tarro... WOOT!

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 11/15/2007 17:29
the Triforce is not an easteregg...

and I won't post the locations. don't wana spoil the fun... also, there's no solution for the "where's Waldo" pics either :P

cerealkiller54 (Level 6 Made) @ 11/15/2007 16:57
Found Kitty
Found Tarro (?)
Found Squirrelsquid

Found Skull thingy...
Found Tri-Force XD

POST THE LOCATIONS PLZ! (In link to pic?)

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 11/15/2007 10:33
The colorcount is this massive, because there are quite a few sprites in there, and although I used the same colors for all the enemies, there are 2 Alpha Omnivore ( near the turrets) that are in the middle of an animation cycle involving some Alpha Blending ( so, these 2 alone add 20 colors) as well as the inclusion of the easter eggs that chew some more colors.

Sure, I could have mashed all these sprites and background down to say 64 colors, but then it wouldn't be true to the game... speaking of that, there are the particle effects missing, because that  would have knocked the color count above 256...

lastly, I don't think a high color count is a problem for this piece, since it IS a compostion of variouse sprites I did for the project.

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/15/2007 09:47
203 colors? its a little bit don't you think?

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/15/2007 05:04

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 11/14/2007 21:53

PaoloVictor (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 11/11/2007 19:57
Holy mother of baby emo christ!

Do you have any plans to make a game out of this? I'm learning pygame... since I get the hang of it and make a couple games, it'd be awesome to work on this =]
