Pixel Art Challenge: It's Horrifying!


Your challenge this week is brought to you by Delicious. He wants you to create a mock-up of a horror video game!

Your mock-up must at least include a central character (the player) and a HUD. Also, the environment should be some-what gloomy, but it's not required, as long as there is something in the mockup that could categorize it as a horror game.

Check out herehere and here for some ideas.

Canvas size - Unrestricted (Single Screen) Multiple Screens for same game allowed.
Colors - Max 25.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

RULE EDIT: for those making multiple screens and want space between screens using trans color is ok for a total of 26.

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

I hate hate hate the timing of this challenge. I've been waiting for a challenge I could (hopefully) do and had a idea for. Finally comes up. Homework. ARGH! Ah well. Excellent challenge, Delicious. Hope that fate gives me a well timed and awesome challenge next week... Or eventually. :(

Would've been a awesome first entry to my gallery if it went well.

*EDIT* Screw it. Tomorrow I begins.

*EDIT2* Not gonna make it. Lack of skill means it's not going well. >.<

@Delicious @Reo if I wasn't so busy I might have a go as I love mock up challenges the most, probably cos I'm much more a spriter than a true pixel artist.

ive been working on my entry for a while now :D great challenge!


Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 5/10/2011 11:52

Glad you guys like the idea. :)

Carnivac: You must do another one then! I'd imagine with your style this is something you'd kick arse in.

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 5/10/2011 10:29

Don't let that stop you from doing another one

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 5/10/2011 08:15

Hah, thanks for that.  I'd forgotten I'd done a horror game mock up already.

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/10/2011 02:42

horror mockup? Now this is a good challenge! Well I got this great idea for a horror game won't problably enter. Still it will be fun to see what others will make.

minor revision/clrification to the rules:

RULE EDIT: for those making multiple screens and want space between screens using trans color is ok for a total of 26.

JuninFC: It wouldn't be a correct mockup without one! So yes. A health bar or something to display the score would be totally acceptable, it should look like it's playable. (Also, the HUD would be pixel art, so technically you're not putting a HUD into your pixel art; you're simply pixeling a HUD as apart of your pixel art.)


Papermoon (Level 4 Button Man) @ 5/9/2011 11:39

oh I might give it a try and join there! but uh oh, color counting ^^; eep, that's a first for me...

JuninFC (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/9/2011 08:24

I must have put a hud in my pixel art?

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 5/9/2011 08:21

Great challenge Delicious! 

Additional inspiration!
