Reminds me of my childhood ! Beautiful Animation.

I saw this in the documentary Dear Mr. Watterson and recognized it immediately. Great job!

This is what Watterson was trying to prevent when he retired from the comic and became a recluse--he knew the world couldn't handle the awesomeness of this game and was trying to save all the people whose heads would explode. Good job.

Here's hoping for a surprise on the Monthly Top10

Nostalgia'ed


user
MCSuire (Level 1 Intern) @ 5/25/2012 13:45

 That is so cool it makes me want to cry ;D

This should be made into a real game :D


user
Ashkin (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 5/24/2012 23:09

Yes. YES. YES!

Might've benefitted from another parallax layer behind the midground, but otherwise great. Love those bouncy walkcycles.


user
TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 5/24/2012 16:43

I love it, especially the palette. So rich.


user
ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/24/2012 14:38

 I logged in just to fave this. great translation of the inking style to pixels.


user
Peelz (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/24/2012 13:49

 Ho-ly crap. My favorite characters/comic in the world made into a game? I would die, but die oh so happy. As others have said, you translated Watterson's style into pixels PERFECTLY. Thank you!

Mind blowing!


user

 Man, you totally nailed the style! Incredible! The more I look at this the more I like it. Great memories attached to Calvin and Hobbes


user

 Fantastic walk cycles!

Now there's something you don't see every day :)


user
bEEtle (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 5/23/2012 13:42

This is Brilliant! Love the comics. You grabbed the style really nicely!


user
epoxy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/23/2012 13:29

Wow, perfect interpretation of a pair of favorite characters!


user
Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 5/23/2012 12:40

Cool, love calvin and hobbes


user
Adam (Level 9 Major General) @ 5/23/2012 11:52

Great piece! Really cartoonish.

Have you tried not to scroll the whole dithering pattern of the ground? It may ruin the feeling of movement a bit, but it could be more comfortable for the eye.


user
Jabberwock (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 5/23/2012 11:51

Incredibly great, stylish and with a lot of goodness . I want to play it! 


user
skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 5/23/2012 10:11

awesome job, love it, especially the parallax version


user
johanvinet (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/23/2012 05:54

 Thank to all of you <3 ! I'll try to imagine some levels (like the Spiff Level, and definitively a Snow level)


user
Pukeko (Level 2 Dealer) @ 5/23/2012 01:56

 I'd play that game!


user
marple (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/22/2012 17:47

I like


user
Paulo Peres (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/22/2012 17:43

Man, this is really awesome!


user
wish04 (Level 5 Sniper) @ 5/22/2012 15:16

I really love how you captured the overall style of the comic.


user
failureboy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/22/2012 13:55

Just imagine the Spaceman Spiff level... 


user
slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 5/22/2012 13:45

I love Calvin and Hobbes! This is awesome.


user
Doctor Octoroc (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/22/2012 13:35

I've wanted a Calvin & Hobbes game since I was a kid! I imagined it being more like Mario 64 but this looks amazing. Such great and perfect representation of the style at such a small resolution. Hobbes can't be taller than 32 px and that's impressive!


user
Laughing Llama (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/22/2012 13:08

Fantastic!

My only suggestion is maybe stagger their walk cycles by a couple frames.


user
Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 5/22/2012 12:58

 AWESOME!
