One of a few quick mockups I did, after wondering why nobody ever remade the SNES version of Shadowrun.  It was one of my favourite action RPGS, growing up, and always thought it could use a little spit n' polish.  I 'd still like to revisit this, if time ever allows, and do some more detail work.

*Had a few minutes to implement some minor changes, while waiting for dinner to cook...

Since you made this they have remade the game, but this pixel art I like more.

I love this game a lot, and i also love this mockup that you did!

great stuff! I love the snes version.

Thanks for the input, guys.  I didn't have a heck of a lot of time to spend on this, but I did take some of your suggestions to heart.  Initially, I was doing a basic upscaling of the original (table cloths and all), but skuzzing the place up really helped with the atmosphere.  I was denied a mega drive in my youth so I've only the SNES version to pull from, but based on your reviews I'm going to have to check it out.

More like the mega drive version was a completely different game, they share little besides the same paper and pencil rpg source material with the SNES version. Both games have their strengths, I think I prefer the mega drive one too, really.

I've also noticed that one of the punks is shaded a bit differently than the other, even though I believe both should be identical if we were to assume this was an actual ingame shot.

I don't know, I like it. Maybe the wood's a bit too bright compared to the rest... and, well, do they still use wooden tables in the Shadowrun world?

It's nice but I agree with Doppleganger.  The bar just looks too clean and lacking in atmosphere.  The  characters, particularly the big green guys just don't look like they belong there and I'm wondering why the need for the table cloths.  I would imagine with those type of people there wouldn't be any point in the cloths as they'd just get ragged and torn and stained over and over again.  But then I'd expect some brawls to break out anyways and see the furniture itself needing replacing too.  I'd like to at least see more details of wear and tear on the place to make it look like it's been visited many times and been home to a lot of drinking and rowdy behaviour.

And yeah the Sega version of the game was better unusually.

So much goodness. Nice work on the characters.

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 3/31/2010 13:52

Also like this lots and lots.

I was wondering why there are no shadowrun mockup on pixeljoint, and than this...

Awesome mockup...

I was always told the genesis version was leaps and bounds better. I've never played either, personally. Although I played the pen and paper once, and am aware of the premise of all of the above.

The mock itself is really nice!, and I'd be willing to play the game regardless of system. The only problem I have with it, is that is seems a little too clean for shadowrun. I would expect more of a techno-punk, grimey type of atmosphere. especially given the characters you seem to have populated the bar with. this looks more like a classy martini bar that ran out of money before the real decorating could begin.

 I signed up just to say "aww, hell yes!"

Fantastic piece, and not just the nostalgia.

All I could suggest is some clarify between the punks' hair and jacket, move the orc a pixel or so away from the wall (right now it looks like he's sorta "in" it), and move about the table in the bottom left so the chair isn't "above" the tablecloth, yet the feet are under it.

 Nice iso work.

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/30/2010 17:48

I like this lots and lots. Good work.

This brings back memories!
