thank you very much! i honestly didn't feel i had enough time and knowledge of c64 palette to do more delicate work, so i opted for in-your-face aesthetic instead.
i have to admit, even though i owned c64 as a kid, i can't say i ever liked its palette. but now i'm starting to appreciate it.

I really love this piece - you have the sci-fi motifs that you see in a lot of C64 pieces but without the "pixel pushing" that you associate with demoscene work, which makes the underlying shapes that much stronger. Pretty cool!

@sjd_sjd_: thank you!

@vrine: thank you! i thought about this piece as a closing scene of a bigger story, so who knows, maybe i'll add more to it later 8]

@christoballs: thanks for testing them!
this was my very first attempt to make c64 images and i was really curious to see if they work. but i couldn't find any functional conversion tool, so thank you for pointing me to multipaint. now i can see both images in vice. sweet! :D

Great use of the c64 restrictions! Great scene too, I want to see more :D

And yes, tested them, they work! You can export them as .prg with MultiPaint.

More C64 goodness this year?? We truly are spoiled!
Thanks for making this for SeDiceBisonte, it's a treat

glad you like it! :]

Oh wow, thanks b236! What a nice surprise.

This is great! In addition to the things I mentioned in the sign up thread, this also reminds me of Beneath a Steel Sky, which is always welcome. You've really nailed the kind of aesthetic I like
