With nuclear doom impending, the citizens of New Amsterdam were forced to seal themselves into holding vaults for a period of 12 years.

Masha and Nikita are released from their cryo-sleep under the Emergency Failsafe system.  The reason though is unclear.  The vault seems untouched, the others continuing to sleep...yeah there's no story.  survival horror cyberpunk etc.

Excellent ambience!

Good work! 

Ezekiel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/12/2011 15:56

 Wow Jesus.. this is fantastic!! I like every part of it! 5 stars

Perihelion (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/3/2011 17:01

Jesus, that is beautiful. I'm going to look at this when I want to remember what a good cyberpunk mockup looks like.

avo (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 7/25/2010 08:48

looks nice 

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 7/11/2010 07:01

The picture is really nice, but the font is quite ugh I have to say. 

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 11/27/2009 17:30

great atmosphere

Ninja-Tech (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/3/2009 12:49

looks like it be a fun game : )

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 6/16/2009 19:03

 the left girl is just amazing, i can't belive how good it is!

ramazing (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 6/8/2009 08:18

congratulations dude! that bottom simply is nicer   ;)

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 6/6/2009 06:29

Very cool. I love the mood on it.

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 6/6/2009 00:55

5/5 + fav :Q_ 

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/5/2009 06:01

very nice work!  I particularly like the lighting on the railing(s) on the [our] left side of the pic!  Great job!

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/5/2009 05:52

 Well, they look more like fluorescent (sp?) lights and bulbs, but I DO like that bluish haze that's washed over the whole image :)

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 6/3/2009 08:08

heh, is there any chance you're saying that because of all the blue leds? :P

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/3/2009 08:00

 The lighting and mood is excellent.

crab2selout.png (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/2/2009 16:38

Maybe it could be an everybody thing. Y'know, some day.  

So this is only for a competition :( I was hoping we'd get to see a couple more screens. :'(

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/2/2009 13:55

Well it's a fabulous piece. I'll favourite it. I didn't realise that cyber punk necessitated barely dressed ladies though. :P I thought that was more of a japanese thing.

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 6/1/2009 14:45

Haha, personally I thought "cyberpunk" alone was enough of an excuse...just trying to fit the genre! :p

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/1/2009 13:57

Good stuff, Adarias. Best of the competition. Amazingly you've almost got a half decent reason for having the women in barely any clothing, but since the guy is also nearly bare, it's acceptable. :P

washburn (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/31/2009 19:33

After I stop looking at the booties I notice a lot else is going on.Love the mysterious figures in the chambers and the lighting on the ladder.

crab2selout.png (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/31/2009 18:51

Awesome! This is just the kind of graphical style I was envisioning for a game idea I had.  Mostly blank foreground, but richly detailed background in a sidescroller perspective. Faved and saved to my computer for reference.  Nice panties, too. There appears to have been some shrinkage during the cryo-sleep process :drool:

Scribblette (Level 1 Intern) @ 5/31/2009 17:59

So good I could cry for wanting to be able to create that much character in my own sprites. Sigh.

taquito143 (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/31/2009 10:13



robotic76 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/31/2009 09:57

ellie-is (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 5/31/2009 08:56

Great one. I ll vote this for sure.

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/31/2009 08:29

 vote...... she got the body!.... man great background and characters... i just dislike the font, but is just my opinion :D...  and those bars are nasty!

chess (Level 8 Shodan) @ 5/31/2009 04:30

one word: atmosphere!  

trifamox (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/30/2009 20:19

Cyberpunk to the bone!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/30/2009 09:13

Now were talking cyberpunk.

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 5/30/2009 09:10


dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/30/2009 08:41

"So much blood, for such a tiny little hole."

I mean.. so much detail for sucha tiny space. Nice work here!!!

Levi (Level 1 Thug) @ 5/30/2009 08:36

This is awesome.

darchangel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/30/2009 07:28

Nice, great use of the palette. Will be looking for it at voting time.

KaLanGO (Level 5 Soldier) @ 5/30/2009 06:52

Now that looks awesome! Loved all the details with such limited palette. Wonderfull

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 5/30/2009 05:04

wow, nice one

the scene reminds me of flashback: great atmosphere shading and all. you'll got my vote :)

Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 5/30/2009 04:10

This is fucking wonderful!

Dirteater (Level 1 Private) @ 5/30/2009 04:01

really love these, awesome atmosphere to it, makes me really want to see this as a film :P

Ghostclown (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 5/30/2009 02:50

New Amsterdam ey? Apparently that was the name originally picked out for new york, if I'm not mistaken. And also a new brand of gin out there. >=)


Nice work.

elend (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/30/2009 02:30

Hey wow, that looks great. And the story sounds at least interesting. Would love to play that. :D

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/30/2009 02:17

Great atmosphere. The sprites are nicely done, but there's something about the bottom half under the roman numerals where the green is used. It feels as though it deserves a few extra colours in that little bit.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/30/2009 01:59

Looks very nice
The healthbar is a bit too fused with the environment and the typography could stick out a bit more in terms of colors, but it's already done so edit's probably wont occur XD

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 5/30/2009 01:46

*psst* don't tell anyone, but....you win.


Heh. Glad to see some off-project stuff like this from you. The real winner of this piece is the ambience. Well, really, it's the colors, but as an artist, you used the Palette extremely well here, to create that sci-fi type ambient environment, that most movies of the genre contain, which again, is also another thanks to Pixelblink, for selecting them in the first place. Wonderful job.
