It's April (or at least close enough to it), so apparently that means it's time to fool people.

This week, create an animation featuring two distinct frames where the second frame is intended to surprise the viewer. For best results, the first frame should last for roughly two or three seconds.

Also, please keep it clean.

Canvas Size - Max 150 x 150.
Colours - Max 20.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Required. Exactly two frames.



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

Hi there, I´ve been working with my friend Ikkju for a long time on a turn-based strategy game called Cubesis. It is now available and you can enjoy its pixelarted graphics (with some non-pixelart edits). The game itself is about setting harmony in the world with changing environment. It is beautifully explained in a IndieGames article. You can check our game on GamersGate and on Desura
