OMFG... Looking from “afar” I hadn't really noticed this is EGA. Indeed a very very nice mockup!! Love your mockups.
If that'd come out as a game back in the day, the graphics could easily stand with the best of them.
Yeah, looks a lot like Crystal Caves. I want to play.
Haha, aw. I'm not sure he'll stay lemming-colored, though. Glad you guys like it.
Well, I drew him small because it's easier to animate, but he probably looks even smaller against a dark background because of the black border, and his outfit is also a bit dark and similar to the background. How about a red overall instead? http://www.retinaleclipse.com/cavernmups2.gif That would work better for the current setting, at least. I might try something more volcanic later on, but I'll worry about that when I get there.
Oh, you're right about the worms, neota. I'll have to make them a bit slimmer and give them more of an s-shape.
