Haha, no of course not.

However Henk did most of the background work from what I know. I just did the shop etc. interiors, as someone already stated.

so those people bumped a bit higher in my hit-list of whose blood to drink to inherit their powerz..

I'm a bit relieved that it's from multiple people and not just one insane work-machine that puts out top notch pixels by the minute..

Just seems odd to me with the quality gap between the pixels in the game and the npa parts.

Thanks for the info guys

Same Shantae. And there's 3 new ones.


user
DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/5/2016 16:26

Is that the same Shantae? I've only played the GBC one and haven't started the Steam one I mentioned yesterday.

Probably not.
Ptoing said here that he made 6 bgs and that the game had art director.

Not everything has to be a bad LSD trip. XD

Just hearing and seeing completely normal things that aren't there. My brother came up to me and asked me a question... then I reallized he's been at work the whole day and I was alone in my room. Also had a conversatio with a friend... who also wasn't there. Nothing really out of the ordinary. Just things that don't happen to be happing in the physical world for anyone else. It's like dreaming while you're awake.

Leroy, yes, all of them, each and every single one of them. Even the ones I already played and posted screenshots of. :P

King Bobby, I'm pretty sure it's a whole team of dudes. Says Wayforward on the label. I recall Atooi mingling with them in the past and all he did was just backgrounds.


user

Are all the pixels in shantae done by one person? Seems like an immense workload.


user
tuaarita (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/5/2016 09:28

Those better not be keys I gifted to you

I just noticed I pixel better when I'm drunk.

This may become a problem

Why not simply stick to pixel art for everything? An odd choice. There's a tremendous discrepancy between the trad' art and the pixel art. 


user
king_bobston (Level 9 Boss) @ 5/5/2016 04:30

I caved in and got steam now.

Thanks! The pixel art is really good but the rest of the graphics can't hold up it seems

user

I have like 500 keys laying around. If anyone needs one just lemme know, I might have one for a game you want.

So... in other news... I've been hallucinating lately, just some good ol' fashion whacky side effects of my meds. I swear some of this shit is even worse than what it's trying to cure.

As much as I loved Daredevil, couldn't stand Jessica Jones more than 17 minutes. It just push it's feminst agenda in such an obvious way, non-subtle way, I felt like I was watching propaganda. It's not because it's feminism by the way, I would feel the same way if it were a non-subtle sort of patronizing approach to capitalism too. Urgh.

What's this? I missed a perfect chance to ramble about my superior political views!?

I vote for anime.

In regard to different opinions, morals and how they are affected by our surrounding and bla this is interesting: Link

In regard to politicians talking this is interesting: Link (originally developed for spamfiltering)

Loriot, a dead german comedian, summed it up best: Link (with english subtitles )

RAV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/4/2016 14:18

Dennis, I think your view is okay. I had my own lows and highs, know how that goes. I'm rather laissez-faire. No one can always make the perfect decisions, and the last we need is someone telling us, "you should have", according to their own theme and situation, without having been in your shoes. I guess in different stages of life, we meet different people, and sometimes they bring the worst out of us, sometimes the best, and god knows why, but it's strange how we come around.


user
Adcrusher (Level 6 Major) @ 5/4/2016 13:57

Do you guys ever look at pixelart so long that you start seeing outlines around each individual pixel? It makes it so hard to focus and see the colors... maybe I need a break. 


user
0xDB (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/4/2016 13:55

I also don't think it is that simple but "base theme" implies it is really just a very basic generalization and as such it might work as a starting point.

 
My view is that primarily yes, everyone who is capable of it, is primarily responsible for their own life (not at the cost of others though which is why I am opposed to uncontrolled capitalism, finance mongering of any kind and opposed to systems that make it incredibly difficult, if not even nearly impossible to improve ones "birthclass" without an improbable portion of personal strength, dedication and the luck to find supportive people to cooperate with early before one is broken and resigned and mentally, physically and emotionally too crippled to ever hope to escape debt), so that's not right wing even though it seems to agree with the base theme.
 
My view is also I don't think that society is responsible for one's life entirely but very well for making the best effort to create a system where people either have a realistic chance to live a free life in peace from their own work, a work they choose themselves freely and which fits their nature under human conditions and livable wages, or if that's not possible due to modernization and technology that sets people free from work, then society should no longer insist that people "carry their weight"(when there is nothing that enables them to do just that) and instead provide for them unconditionally (Unconditional Base Income is a great idea I think to ease the precarious employment situations most people are in and the power imbalance we're dealing with and I heard the world is rich enough to feed everyone twice). Well, some people may think of that as left wing. Maybe it is and I don't think left wing is bad in that regard.
 
I think people need to stop thinking in terms of capitalism vs. communism and look beyond both for better ways to organize life on this planet to support ideas that really provide the basics for everyone unconditionally(at least with the work spread over so many shoulders that instead of having a few job holders who cling to their 12h days in fear of losing their jobs, everyone just works an hour or even less per day... I am aware this is a bit Utopian but I don't think it's impossible and the combined technological knowledge of the world should surely make it possible... if we want to) and those who want more should still be allowed to work for more but not at the cost of enslaving the rest of the world who is not as interested in material gain or not as ambitious and hungry for... well whatever it is the ambitious people hunger for (approval? love? control over others?).
 
Well, I am ranting again. And as usual, I expect heavy opposition to these views, people calling me a lazy freeloader, dreamer, hippie, crazy, insane. Well I am lazy. Haven't always been though. 20 years ago... my views were very very different. But enough of my personal sob story.
 
And in another 20 years, my views might even be radically different again, or I will enjoy the freedom of focusing on making art and games away from any pressure of financial success or confirming to any politically correct glorification of making ones living off of labor, after my 1h shift of supervising the robots and machines for the day and collecting my unconditional base income or maybe I'll even don't need that because I harvest food from my personal fully automated indoor farm, receiving all kinds of necessary treatments from an AutoDoc and painting pictures of robots maintaining each other as I contemplate the finer qualities of life.

Let's talk about less controversial topics now, like religion. 


user
RAV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/4/2016 13:34

that's okay, Ziz, for me that pretty much sums it up. When I realized that, other than of real extremists, most debates are basically a variation to those two underlying sentiments, things became much clearer to me. Complexity can arise out of simple elements. That doesn't make this discourse any easier or more conclusive, though. We are cursed with this forever, by how our brain works. Other than that there is always a new difficult situation to interpret the themes on, our brain itself is not conclusive about whether you assume yourself an 'i" or "we", and there's probably individual preferences of operations, which form the political orientation.


user
Zizka (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 5/4/2016 13:23

I respectfully don't think it's that simple RAV, far from it (unless you were trolling in that case you got me). 


user
RAV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/4/2016 13:23

And then we have the problem that every side perfected the art of provoking the other, maybe not always even consciously anymore; whether you are insulting or not, justified or not, you can't always tell anymore, because everyone has been on the shit end of such a conversion in another context some day, and carries that experience over to the next, rinse and repeat.


user
RAV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/4/2016 13:08

The base themes of the major political sides are this:

Right wing: You are responsible for your own life; no one owes you.

Left wing: Society is responsible for your life; hence you owe to society.

Most arguments can be traced back to these two themes. Which is true? both are. it depends on the situation. Yet both sides usually want to talk about the situation where an emphasis of the other side is misplaced. Plenty people don't do enough to help themselves when they could, and plenty people are treated like shit when they couldn't help it.

Frankly, I am not aware of throwing insults and paid attention to phrasing my views diplomatically and carefully. Believe it or not but it does make me feel better to know, you(anyone) are not supporting that horrible person. 

Please, in the future, refrain from insults, even if you feel they're justified.

Well then, back to art.

Maybe, or maybe we should indeed go back to focus on common interests like art instead of rubbing our differences into each others faces (no matter how tempting).


user
DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/4/2016 12:13

Somewhere far below someone posted that they did not see how anyone could vote for trump. I have provided some reasons in response to this post. I am not a trump supporter, and I am not arguing in support of his policies. The insults were thrown because what you said had nothing to do with the purpose of my posts. Do not act like I insulted everyone in a hysterical temper tantrum without reason, especially when plenty other people, yourself included did the same.


user
cure (Level 10 Capo) @ 5/4/2016 12:12

...and we're back to Trump. Maybe a containment discussion thread for vitriolic bickering political opinions is the best solution.


user
0xDB (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/4/2016 12:03

To keep an eye on keeping things civil and to educate about peace and compassion and Human Rights where I feel these things are getting neglected or even completely forgotten... and I feel like these concepts are being neglected by Trump and his supporters.

 
What's favorable for the US might not be favorable for the rest of the world and I think nationalism is a backwards concept that ignores the global needs of people, of mankind as a whole. You may call me a hippie or dreamer as much as you want but if we stop dreaming, we have already lost.
 
My question was actually mostly rhethorical and intended to point out how insults are not accomplishing anything.
 
Also, I'm fairly sure that Trumps views and agenda are not even favorable to the majority of people in the US, only for a small group of people who basically enslave everyone else through the system they've created and which they will try to re-inforce at the cost of the people they rule over and at the cost of other nations.

user

To present reasons as to why people might support Donald Trump by showing that the policies of the other candidates are not necessarily favorable to the US. E tu?

0xDB (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/4/2016 11:29

It's not inherently pointless to exchange thoughts, it only becomes pointless when one is too focused on "winning" the discussion or that one fears "losing" it(and along with it perhaps the fear of losing a sense of belonging to a community?... I wonder how the refugees feel who are running for their lives and struggle for survival (and not just for someone to agree with their opinion on something) and I wonder how they feel when faced with opposition after they're already exhausted and lost all hope for a little piece of peace and freedom... maybe they'll get a little angry, maybe they'll start insulting someone,... existential anxiety can be a strong force... a little compassion will not hurt us), whatever it may mean to you to "win" or "lose" an exchange of thoughts. 

 
I think you are retreating from it, because you are in fact the one who can't handle it (as you claim I can't) and you feel a strong urge to "support" your view with insults. It's not "yeah whatever" to you obviously. You seem infuriated. "Yeah whatever" would look very different, quite free of insults and free of attempts and reassuring yourself of belonging here by thanking "everyone who wasn't an idiot in the comments". You're welcome by the way, since I wasn't and am no idiot, I accept your thanks.

user
DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/4/2016 11:05

Yeah, whatever. I'm done with the topic. Always pointless to argue against the majority's opinion on an online forum. Thanks to Zizka and whoever else wasn't an idiot in the comments.

Didn't seem that you had a problem with Manu's remarks when he made them. People disagreed with my articles, and I provided more when prompted to. This is how a conversation works. Not gonna justify what I posted to some random internet sissy.
