Simple NES-like mockup.

A spin-off of Arne's thing.

Oh man, I remember referencing this so many times while doing NES work. You're a true master of the system's limitations. :D

Looks like a fun adventure. I only wish we'd had a game looking like that back when.

 I'm a sucker for top-down game screenshot pixel art. But I don't see a lot of them being tackled under more retro colour constraints. This has just the right balance of detail to simplicity. It reads well enough that I know what everything is supposed to be.

 Very nice!

(Clever preview image, but I was expecting moving stuff once inside.)

Love the water. I did try to do a ripply edge to the water on the bright grassland stuff (that screen is supposed to be a palette swap for twilight lighting, see here) using the dark blue but it looked like poo. The bright line just under the shadow really makes it. I'll give it a go.

I made a little edit of one screen here. Palettes at the top. It is a bunch more tiles and 4 instead of 3 tile palettes, but might as well. And you get some green and brown blades of grass for free, as well as 2 colour variants for the stones.

The style and the colors are so well-suited! Also that's a lovely rendition my Samsung monitor :)

I love it.

 Pixel perfect, I love it!

>tfw backgrounds look better than characters
Anyway, I really like it. Nice job with colors.

Nice tiles, very classic. Not a big fan of the top open sprites. I am more of a break-the-outline-at-the-feet-to-ground-the-sprite kinda guy and I do not think that broken outlines work very well in low colour, high contrast environments like the NES.
