This challenge is based on the same premise as "The New Bomber" challenge we had back in 2014, which you can check out if you want some inspiration:

The sprite must be original work - no sprite edits will be accepted. Feel free to change style and game genre, too!

Canvas size: Max 48x 48.
Colours: Max 8.
Transparency: Required, don't forget it counts as a colour!
Animation: Optional.



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

Our latest collab Planet ISO is finally complete. Gawrone has become the all time record breaker with an incredible number of 19 tiles in total!!

The new palette compo for our next ISO collab -which is medieval themed- has already begun, be sure to participate!

You can drop the name suggestions for the medieval collab here. The only rule is that it has to have ISO within the name just like our previous collabs - ISOtopes, PrehISOria and such.
