~ for GameBoy turns 20 challenge ~

The game is about a little star, who has lost his loved one, and goes on a journey to find her - amongst BILLION others!


yeah, this was my sunday yesterday. now because the friggin net didn't work, i set my alarm clock to 5:55 a.m. to submit this piece at university, can you imagine!

i like this piece, finally a challenge which convinced me to move my lazy ass. dithering was not that bad, but making the title font was ARRGH.

em - first i wanted the sun to say: "Hello little star ... You've come from a long journey." is this correct English anyone? i'm really not sure.

The sun's face is really artistic, not to belittle how great the rest of the piece is!

Good job! I really like this one, and definitely voted for it. My main line of reasoning for doing so, was that it instantly captured me into the essence of the game with just those two screens.

As an aside, I will update the avatar as soon as I get the chance, it's been hard to set aside personal time for myself as of late.

Very great job with dithering there buddy!

Awesome work!

Really great work. The title looks a little odd though, could be better. Also, the style you chose for "start" doesnt really fit with the other styles.

thanks =)

a wish would come true ^^

thanks to everybody. i originally intended to put it into the challenge thread for C+C before, but there was no time and no internet. and this spelling error is embarrassing. but is it allowed to change the preview pic during the voting week?

Congratulation !! You should be in the top 3 !!

I really like how you pixelled the sun, as it has a real energy of radiance and power about it.

I thought this was a really beautiful entry.  The style on the right panel is somewhat vanGogh-esque and I appreciated it.  Lovely.

Chace (Level 5 Captain) @ 5/4/2009 04:46

Wow, I like this one.
I agree on the  'e'-part. It looks a little weird in that position.
Also, you spelled preview wrong. It's not prewiew. But hey, that can be fixed in no time.
This is a great entry.

The "Search" in the logo is a bit confusing, hard to read. The style is great. You did great with the stars/space.

SuperKirby (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/4/2009 02:26

I dont like how the E is placed in search. I don't know why, it just looks kind of wierd there.

Apart from that everything is great!

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/4/2009 02:18

ha, well, the other ones are about 5 to 8 years old! ^^

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 5/4/2009 02:04

May I also add that this work seems significantly more improved than that of your other pieces. Just, very good. =]


Tunc (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 5/4/2009 00:39

Wow, awesome, that's an epic journey indeed. And the sun's face, hahahaXD

I think "It's been a long journey" sounds better.  Lots of great entries in this challenge^^ 

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 5/3/2009 23:33

Lovely concept, I think I'd really enjoy playing something like this, even despite not seeing any actual gameplay examples.

Your grammar and English is fine. Well, maybe you could add a comma after 'Hello', but it's not a big deal.
