IGN did an article on video game character halloween costumes. It's IGN, so I assume this has already been on the intarwebs for years now. But, I've never seen the Day of the Tentacle costumes before(which are awesome) and want all to see them in their glory.

Check it.

Can't afford the Orange box?  That's ok.  You can play the Flash version of Portal for free - and it's just as good as the original!  It even saves your progress.  Check it out!

Game Description:  Fire once to open up a portal and again at the location you want to reach. Walk through one portal and you'll come out the 2nd. Use that to escape each room etc. This is the flash version of the Valve game portal.

Using only 15 colors of your choice on a 150x150 canvas make an item on a transparent background which focuses on the SelOut (Selective Outlining) technique.

The pixel itself may be a figure, object or anything at all. While overall idea and general pixel prowess is of some importance in getting votes. The SelOut is what matters this week.

Rules:
  • Canvas Size: 150x150 exactly
  • Colour Restriction: 15 color palette max  (16th color is transparency).
  • Transparency: Must use to best judge the SelOut technique used.
(download GIFFY from the FAQ page in the gallery or use www.iaza.com if needed. www.spriteart.com has a great SelOut tutorial [see the links page])

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

The contest is open until October 29th at 12am PST.

I neglected to mention it in my original post. Oops! My bad!
This should quell any and all sense of panic for those that thought they only had until Oct. 15th to submit.

Once again, there will be prizes (TBA) as well as a fancy page set up as in previous Pixelweens.

As part of the Jay is games competition #4 (www.jayisgames.com) the team stimunation has entered with a short but fun little adventure style minigame. The pixelart is leaning towards the old LucasArts classics of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle. It's short... but with some quality pixels in there.

Check it out!

All challenges aside, I am still sponsoring this years Pixelween competition. Huzzah! You have a much longer time to compete and complete this contest than the weekly challenges. So there's no excuses.
