I am hungry :(

Skydsgaard (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/6/2014 10:15

Thanks a lot dudes!!!

@NemukaH Hi!, I don’t know what to say; HLD's Kickstarter came out in September last year and we started our devlog on TIG forums in August. So for sure both teams were working without knowing that the other existed :)

I don’t know if we use the same references/ inspirations (would be great to ask them ^ ^) but for me, the main and strong art influence come from Sword & Sworcery.

And yeah, it was kind of minimal pixel art. but I still see a lot of different and cool styles within this ““category””, even if they share the pixel scale.

Games as HLD, Crawl, Super Time Force, Broforce, Zombie Night Terror (and so many others) have a really clear and recognizable style. Soooo, I don’t know, I just hope that this trend will last for a while, because I love it :)

NemukaH (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/18/2014 17:54

Hey, Skydsgaard. I've been looking for this style since HLD came out. Is this a type of minimal pixel art, or is it it's own stand alone style?

.haski (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/7/2014 19:31

Love it so much! What an awesome style of art!

atei (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/20/2014 09:15

Yeah this game is going to be cool as hell.  I love the distorted perimeter thing goin on in the video preview.

omn (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/7/2014 00:29

Yeah I've checked the rest and hld has nothing on irkalla! I want this game now! amazing

Skydsgaard (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/4/2014 11:51

JustinGameDesign (Level 8 Marshal) @ 4/4/2014 07:10

You've got a great sense of style.

omn (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/4/2014 02:32

Shadow64 (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 3/7/2014 19:02

Very nicely done. Fire is tough.

Dunlan (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/7/2014 13:36

I really love this art style!

ConnyNordlund (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 3/7/2014 08:04

Really loving the different pixel sizes. Makes it look really cool.

Thenavil (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/5/2014 04:23

I REALLY love your style!

congrats man -Gas1312

nedink (Level 1 Intern) @ 3/4/2014 11:21

This is really beautiful. Nice work.

Six Down Studios (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/4/2014 04:50

Outstanding piece, I'm psyched to find out it's for a game!  The mockups and animations on the devblog are quite excellent, I'm really looking forward to further development.  Just by including little scenes like this, the party campfire but from the foes' perspective (foes who toast marshmallows even), you guys are cracking the mold of the standard game narrative.  Keep up the great work!

w4rlock (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/4/2014 02:52

excellent work 

Gamamoto (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/4/2014 01:10

Wow I really love your style, minimal but full of details and vivid !
Well done sir o/

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/3/2014 18:44

This is so awesome. That is one impressive fire.

The whole project, art, logo, colors, idea is all great and cool.
Please let us know when your project is ready for posting as news so all can enjoy.

Skydsgaard (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/3/2014 12:09

Thank to each one of you :)


best compliment ever :D:D:D


yep! we are on it, you can follow the dev log here :)


No idea dude xD, this is the first pixel fire that I have made, so, I was just lucky ^_^U

About the shadow, yeeeeeah, I totally agree with you, there is something wrong with the timing.


Thanks a lot! That is just the horizont, it's not realistic but I think it looks cool  :)

This is from Irkalla :D more to come!

Ambient (Level 6 Major) @ 3/3/2014 11:34

That marshmellow. Awesome just about everything. I do have one concern: the shadow in the back. What is it a shadow of? Or is it just the extent of the fire's light? (in which case what about the edges of the scene?)

I take it this is for Hyper Light Drifter?

Ogorgeddon (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/3/2014 06:14

That fire looks so realistic

ripatti (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/2/2014 08:54

I really like how you animated the shadows

lantosyt (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/2/2014 08:14

the animation is just stunning man

vimmel (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/2/2014 06:09

This is so good man! Really cool scene!

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/2/2014 06:01


Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 3/2/2014 02:58

Amazing! That fire animation is incredibly good! How do you get it to look so natural yet remain so 'squared'?

I am a little bit dissapointed that the flickering shadows do not respond properly on the brightness of the flame. Ideally it would be dark when the flame is tiny and light up as the fire grows again!

moondrome (Level 7 Merfolk) @ 3/2/2014 02:41

cool! there will be a game out of this scenes you are uploading?

Wugabuga (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/2/2014 02:28

awesome style!

Rain-Game (Level 1 Seaman) @ 3/1/2014 23:58
I really like that fire.

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 3/1/2014 05:52

Love it.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/1/2014 04:38

The creatures remind me of something out of a Zelda game. Lovely stuff!

EZKOI (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/1/2014 03:47

Like allways... amazing work!

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/1/2014 02:58

Can't say I normally go for these somewhat abstract styles but I actually really like this.
