Mega Cat Studios is an independent development team, for homebrew development in console like Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Super NES and NES. 
The development team has just launched its new project: Little Medusa available for NES.

I was involved in the beginning of the development, to create the first sprite, concept art and story board and will soon upload all the assets of the game in my gallery.

You can download a Demo of the game, but you need an NES emulator to play.

We're going to try a new kind of compo here at PJ. There will be participation awards for everyone involved so be sure to take part!

This teamwork compo works as following:
Everyone has a bit over two weeks to submit line art, or any image which uses only 2 colors (which matches the image requirements and theme). The day after the first submission deadline you will receive a message containing line art from another random participant, you will have 3 weeks to finish this other persons work into a colored pixel art.

After the competition is over, non-part taking PJ mods and selected judges will look at the end results and select a top 3. Both the submitter of the line art and the submitter of the final result will receive trophies, so you can win twice! Everyone who submits both a line art and a colored artwork will receive an award.

Image requirements:

The theme for the image is: An unlikely couple

Canvas Size - exactly 150x100 or 100x150
Colors - Max. 32 for finished work, exactly 2 colors for line art.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

Reddit allows users to create their own communities, and the main subreddit for pixel art has reached this huge milestone. Who even knew that many people were into pixel art?

skeddles aka Sam Keddy have also taken over as the head moderator of the subreddit. I hope to see some positive changes in the sub going forward, and have lots of ideas.

In celebration (in addition to reddit soon to be releasing a big update), we have several contests going on.

The Curious Expedition has released the game’s content for free on GitHub.

This includes all the image files of the game, which is often praised for its unique and beautiful pixelart. 

This decision is accompanying the release of full modding support, including Steam Workshop integration. With the available image and script files, remixing and creating new content for The Curious Expedition should be as smooth as possible. This offers a unique insight into the development tools and design of a procedural game.

A short while ago Edge has released a 212 page special called "The Art of The Pixel" which features 24 contemporary pixel artists such as Junkboy, jalonso, huZba, cocefi, Gary Lucken, Johan Vinet, and ptoing. There is a page of info on each artist where they answered questions regarding pixelart as well as images from popular oldschool pixel games interspersed throughout the magazine.

Phyersoft is trying to raise the funds to reach MomoCon in Atlanta this May 26th to 29th to show off Barricade.  We've been working hard at this game but lack the expenses to make it.   Any little that you can offer would greatly help.  Otherwise we'd appreciate it if you could get the word out.
