Joining this weeks challenge I made this game boy game mock-up.

In Dirge you play as Lucia out to rescue her beloved Felicia. It's a pretty straight forward palatformer, with some diolog.

I wanted each enviorment to have there own armosphere and tryed to give them uniqe brightness.
The first screen out in the bright daylight is ofcourse the first level, on her way to the castle before night falls.

Havn't tough much of the story really, other then when Lucia finds Felicia, she seem but a shell of her former self, and Lucia sets out to take vengens on the succubus who seduced her, sort of...

Mm, thought 1992 was a good game boy year...

Dangit! You're right. That was obvious with a few more seconds of attention but that's what happens when . . .

All the beautiful entries to the challenge make me keep imagining the situation where guys from Nintendo are looking at Pixeljoint and pulling theyr hair screaming "why didnt we have these artists when we released that crap hw back then"

The helmet in the first panel is absolutely fantastic.

Diggin this! Title, sprites, and background all kick ass

Heh, thanks for all the nice comments!
But the knight in the skull helmet is Lucia. Yes she  dosn't have the most female form, and no big boobs. But as you can see in the dialog screen the knight, Lucia, is talking it to the succubus, whom is, as the demon she is, all bare.

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 5/1/2009 22:36

Lucia is nekkid.

 There's not enough castlevania-type games like this :)

Looks like it would be a fun one.

...oh, and interesting helmet he has there, very different.

{ This would be a classic, like castlevania or sparkster for super nes! Good work!
