Red-hot gaming! Overflow of excitement! Rock-solid fun!


This began as an entry for the Lava Level challenge, then I changed my mind. It was not really a mockup, and I could never have finished it on time anyway. Plus I didn't really like it.

I reworked it as an opening screen for this silly game of red volcanoes vs blue volcanoes: each player has to drown the opponent's volcanoes in lava.

This is of course happening on Io, the most volcanic place in the whole Universe! (well, that we know of)

The preview alone amazes me with the blinking effects. The whole work is fabulous!

This is absolutely GORGEOUS. :D The moon in particular made me squee and the pallette is absolutely stunning. I love all the details you put into this, especially the little faces on the volcanoes.

Sir Knight, you are a master of Black Lava!

yeah, it was extremely "obvious", but i still think the colours were all very well-selected.

...and I find that regardless of whether I'm working with a harmonious or challenging palette, I prefer to have the colours chosen for me (lazy lazy lazy).  heh, now I really understand why your submissions for that challenge involved white/black lava.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/2/2011 16:24

True dat. But it also restrains your freedom a lot, because it's an 'obvious' palette for the challenge theme; it's almost inevitable that the warm / bright colors are going to be lava and the cold / darks rock and stuff. Crazy palettes are way more fun!

man, I totally forgot how amazing the palette for that challenge was (at least to my uneducated eyes)

Man, and I thought Zebes was hardcore. Turns out Io is full of hard-rocking volcanoes that puke sulfur. Awesome!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/2/2011 01:17

Thanks a lot good people!

@ Losm: do it! =)

And here I thought I would go through life never seeing a anthropomorphised volcano.

Damn you for being so amazing Manupix! :)))))

Sweet work!

Oh meh gosh, those tiny little arms are adorable! Great gestures.

Losm (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 11/1/2011 18:51

 Ha! It's funny 'cause I myself am still working on some sort of "mockup" for the very same challenge. ^_^

Of course, it's got nothing on yours. :(

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 11/1/2011 18:41

I looked at this and was like "hmm thats really cool, i wonder who did it.....*looks down* oh that makes sense..."

anyway, nice job manu. the only crit i have is that the skinny blue volcano with the face looks a bit flat.
