Love this - the design, the colour choices and especially the animation all work so well.

This is beautiful!!!!! Do you have a tutorial for how to make top-down view sprites

There is a shadow pixel disapearing at the 3 boxes thing, top left.
Also, what are these shadow pixels near the left wall?

Awesome pixel art tho!

I think the smooth slimes fit in nicely actually. This is really cool.

Ah, okay! I was just pointing it out incase you'd meant for it to be like a traditional chest. I didn't so much mean that it contrasts with the locking mech in the front, I had simply assumed that you were going for a traditional chest since, when unopened, it had an extremely identical appearance. In that case, you did a great job with that effect haha

When I said it bothered me I didn't mean that it looks bad in any way either. I was just under the assumption you were going fo rsomething else. Great work!

Thank you everybody!

@Pheno: I see what you mean with the slimes. I had tried to make them less smooth, but the result was not very good...

@Artic: you perfectly described what I wanted to portray: the chest top is meant to slide back when opening, rather than just turning around an axis. I thought this was a little more original than the usual pirate chest style. And I don't think it contrasts with the front lock in any way...

clever, I like it! ^^

failureboy (Level 7 Assassin) @ 8/31/2014 00:12

another really solid entry.

This makes me wish I had pixel art skill

I love the way it looks, but the chest animation bothers me. It looks more like the lid/head of the chest slides back as it opens, versus simply rotating on an axis like a real chest would. Let me see if I can have this make more sense...

The lid of the chest right now looks like it's sliding off the back as it's being opened, similar to how you'd take the lid off an old, unhinged casket or anything like that. However, a traditional chest (thinking like, pirate's treasure chest) opens by rotating around it's axis, which would be located at the back of the lid, where it is hinged to the base of the chest. The front lifts up and away, whereas the very back of the chest stays in the exact same place becau'se it's hinged there.

I'm assuming this is the kind of chest you're trying to emulate as well, because of the locking area in front.

If anybody can do a better job of explaining what I mean, please do so haha

Once again, absolutely love the way this all looks. The colors are fantastic and the style overall is appealing

Pheno (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 8/30/2014 19:22

The slimes or gems or whatever they are are awful smooth compared to everything else. I love the clusters and the style, though.

MasterSky (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/30/2014 19:20

amazing! i love this style
