Some mockups of a game called "Pharaohs Return". (using ptoing's 16 color C64 palette) The mockups are based on the C64 multicolor character mode. There are some tricks merged in there, like hires sprite overlays and raster interrupts for changing colors and increasing the amount of available sprites. Nevertheless, it should be displayable on a real C64. (see pixelation thread)

I hope you finish this project because just seeing these makes me want to play it. Every screenshot looks like a unique area that would be fun to explore.

The greenish level looks really cool! Also liked the rope with friction on the devlog...

I have to agree with Carrion. It's fantastic to see those detailed characters, filling the memory and still doing the job. These came in mind somehow:

Bob Stevenson's work for MYTH;
and the use of both hires and multicolored chars; 
and perhaps...
Daniel Malone's work for Antiriad:

As a c64 fan i think it's huge!

You should play it with your favourite joypad of course... (Windows at least, other platforms might follow) Cannot say when, because it's still in an early stage and it's a homebrew game without deadline.

Following this on pixelation since the very beggining.

Also what Mrmo said!
