C64 Hires (40x25 chars), Ptoing palette (16 cols), only 2 colors per 8x8 char/tile.

For a long time I've been thinking about giving (the insanely restricted) C64 Hires mode a proper go...to see what can actually be done. Well, finally got around to do something...

Might try C64 limitations sometime. Cool stuff!

Lovely work! :D

Should this game exist it'd be quite the achievement both graphically and pushing the hardware to its limits :D.

Great stuff. I'd love to play this. I particularly like the top right screen because of the beautiful portraits and view screen, but it's all amazing.

Minimal is your only option with C64 hires and 2 colors per 8x8 area!

I really dig the portraits. Minimal but very effective.

Hehe. I converted them to PRGs and will check them out at some later point on my 1084S. On that it should look good.

@ptoing: Pfft, just play it in an emulator with a good monitor! ;) ...In all honesty; there's also a few other elements/techniques in there that probably wouldn't be practical or even feasible in a real dynamic game.

@everyone: Thanx guys!

Very nice stuff, esp the 2 screens at the top. The only issue I see with these is that the font would be very hard to read on certain screens, esp on TVs.

Incredible for Hires mode! Love the terrain. 

Janinhus (Level 5 Reptile) @ 12/2/2020 11:49

So nice! I'd play the hell out of it...

TRUEvector (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 12/2/2020 11:45

The portraits and miniatures are super daym good!

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 12/2/2020 11:16

Now I want to play it!!

Theoden (Level 8 Marshal) @ 12/2/2020 04:44

Very cool stuff.
