I got hooked into gaming "back then" with C64 and its catalogue, and I've been playing games since. I wanted to have a job in the game industry - a game tester, so I could just keep playing games.

Are you bad enough dude to recognize the loader screen without looking at the reference? ;D

C64 reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Commodore64.jpg

Loader screen reference: http://www.lemon64.com/games/details.php?ID=2085&coverID=2507

edit: Changed the dark "scene" a bit

edit: Dagnabbit, Animation Shoppe threw the colours off. Huh, it was PSP and not AS after all. How odd.

edit: Added looping and improved the dude on the loader screen

This is so me. Except it's my computer booting, and not a game loading.

Great attention to the lighting.

Awesome colors!!  I love the animation

I can hear the loading music kicking in!

Flarfy: Hehe, that habit claimed many an eyesight, mine included. Yeah, gotta be careful... nothing good ever comes out of software trying to be helpful (yes, MS Word, I'm looking at you). :)

Gas 13: Glad you like it, I tried to pay extra attention to lights and shadows. :)

I love the way played with light here. Reminded me of sweet ZX-Speccy nights :)

Awesome! This sure brought back some memories! C64 was my first computer and I often played in the dark too!

I use PSP too and it HAS a tendency to throw off the colors if you are not careful!

achivement unlocked: awesomeness.

For some reason almost all of your colours are off - possibly due to your animation program?? Anyway, please make sure you are using all of the correct colours and then resubmit.

 haha, nice. i realyly like it. the only thing, that bother me, is the face of the guy, and the guy who is an the monitor..

inphy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/27/2010 12:13

Yeah, I thought looping would make no sense, now it's just "loading" forever. ;)

I'll try leaving the highlights with darkest tone in, thanks for the suggestion.

edit: Yup, looks nicer that way, I ended up using two tones from both ends to give it a bit more definition. Thanks!

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/27/2010 12:08

are u aware that it doesnt loop?....

i like the decrunching (is it the right term?) effect...also the keyboard looks good to me ....but i think the remaining LEDs look strange when it gets dark, maybe u shouldnt make it completely black, but leave the highlights with the darkest tone, so that theystand out that hard.... also what is the think right to the monitor?
