Old project, finished today.
Done with the MS Paint colors.

Castle of the Winds is a really really old PG game.
I always thought about a remake, so... here it is! Hope you enjoy.

Oh shit, I loved that game! Way to bring back a load of nostalgia. Nice sprites, too.

If you or anyone else you know is interested in teaming up for a CotW remake project, please let me know. Unfortunately it seems noone managed to accomplish this feat up to now, as if the game's cursed or something. =P


By the way, you're brazilian too, right? I wasn't sure, so I wrote in english just in case. =)

{ Yeah, I know. It would need a brand new code.

yrizoud (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 12/6/2010 10:36

Oh no, the images are too big to use them in the game :((

ardentsideburn (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/30/2010 07:15

Flarfy (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/27/2010 02:23

This is truly masterful use of an othervice terrible palette. Well done.

littlesapphire (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 11/25/2010 19:54

Yeah, that's some awesome use of colors.  And it's just really well done, period.  I can't help liking that first warrior :D  

pixle~lover~4 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/25/2010 13:14

that is bloody amazing!

Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 11/25/2010 12:32

You use colours so well.  Great stuff as usual.

Cilein (Level 5 Irish Elk) @ 11/25/2010 10:22

I only just read the palette choice, that is amazing, I wouldn't have realized, awesome use of your colors, and remake!

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 11/25/2010 08:54

Nossa, os originais parecem ter sido desenhados por crianças com 4 anos de idade!

Os remakes ficaram ótimos, parabéns! 

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/25/2010 06:23

That is one hell of a killer remake! Great job.

yrizoud (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 11/25/2010 02:27

This is an amazing use of (imo) a difficult palette, I have a million things to learn from this.

I really liked CoW too, back in '95 I made an icon for a friend's character :)

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/25/2010 00:59

I love pieces that use the mspaint palette so well :D 

1ucas (Level 5 Soldier) @ 11/24/2010 23:27

Man, Castle of the Winds was the shit back in the days. I loved the fighting narratives.

This is amazing stuff. Great job! I'd love to see the rest of the enemies.

Zeo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/24/2010 22:52

ufff brutall!!! dude!!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/24/2010 21:57

What a great remake, kudos.

Zweckform (Level 1 Intern) @ 11/24/2010 20:52

Like them color combinations. Good job.

Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 11/24/2010 20:25

I'm digging the Skeleton, and the Gremlin type character. :]

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/24/2010 19:59

Sweet stuff!

The goblin fighter looks to me more like a plain goblin. Could be bulked up a bit.

Surtur is particularly cool.

CoW is one of my favourites, I replaced all the icons in the executable back in the day but they died with a failed floppy.

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 11/24/2010 19:00

Amazing job using those colours! You made them beautiful. ;')

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 11/24/2010 17:32

{ @lucas_irineu Yep, da epoca do Windows 3.x hehe...

  @DawnBringer I did it because he's a Big Boss.

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/24/2010 17:29

Muito foda cara. E, PG game? :p

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 11/24/2010 17:01

Nice work with those nasty colors! :) The last image makes we wonder if you couldn't have varied the bkg on more of them?
