Ryuk (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/31/2010 19:20

I agree this is an amazing work of art.

Scramite (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/16/2010 23:39

 I want you to learn how to program NOW!!

Scramite (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/16/2010 23:37

 One of your best works yet. Great work!

vampireslug (Level 5 Detective) @ 6/11/2010 06:22

This really, really, really needs to be made into a game... I wish I knew how to program <sigh>.

Zweckform (Level 1 Intern) @ 5/16/2010 08:28

Great work.

Grug (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/15/2010 15:57

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 5/15/2010 13:58

 first gold trophy for jal!

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/15/2010 03:44

DarkWorld (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/14/2010 15:57

LOL grath picture

Ipsen (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 5/5/2010 14:37

Look realy great... 

WinterAce (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/21/2010 02:05

The level of detail is paralyzing me! I love the "world scenes". And the castle is so damn awesome! WOW!

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 4/19/2010 16:54

 i cant stop looking at this piece

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/17/2010 05:07

Yikes! What a shock, I hadn't looked at the thread for ages.

I love Mona so much. I wonder what the utterly useless invention can be. And I'm perfectly happy about the Engineering Journal. =)

Italy looks like a lake surrounded by land, I love it that way.

Only problem I have is with the open legs in the title screen, because of interference with the text they look weird.


Edit: Italy as a country didn't exist then, so the northern frontier is anachronistic.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/11/2010 10:16

Love absolutely everything about it!

It's come a long way since the initial doodles :)

lytron (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 4/11/2010 08:32

It's always fantastic to see faked screenshots here that make me want to play these games! ;)

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/11/2010 03:46

Very cute and detailed, I love the tiles!

Phones (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/10/2010 17:45

 Is this in a tileset? If so, it'd be pretty cool to see that too.

cassiechihuahua (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/9/2010 16:29

This is eye candy..Good job. Looks like it would be an neat game, got a lot of interesting little perks, too.

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 4/8/2010 16:57

 holy hell.  nice work, old man.  your skills have obviously gotten better from the last time i was here.

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/8/2010 15:29

 Beautiful. Extremely well done.

Gunstar_Red (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/8/2010 01:21

Petrichor (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 4/7/2010 19:44

I just spent over fifteen minutes staring at this. <3

Luisyluis (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/7/2010 13:36

jaltendo xd I love it!

Nightmare Maker (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 4/7/2010 13:18

This is AWESOME D:

I lol'd hard at the "I will pose for you but first bring me..."

Seriously, get a programmer.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 4/7/2010 07:15

I'm not keen on the sprite style and find it quite offputting but I do love the work gone into all the details and shading of the tiles and stuff.

Dirteater (Level 1 Private) @ 4/7/2010 05:10

I don't think this could be anymore badass.

oCo (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/6/2010 23:36

The amount of work gone into that seems huge.

Love the buildings.

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 4/6/2010 14:34

I am speechless. The colours and mixing gives it the artistic feel perfectly. I especially love the map screenshot!

Wut (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/6/2010 14:16

I envy your skills.

ev149 (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/6/2010 13:39

Great job, you should seriously find a programmer to work on this! 

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/6/2010 11:38

I actually don't know what the first/second is. I only see Dali and this one.

Nonetheless, I thought I would add that the perseverence of you and the community is what really makes this stand out. Looking through the thread, I can see the clear progress that made this the mastery that it is.

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/6/2010 11:31

Incredible work! I haven't even seen the second, but Dali was phenomenal, and this one floors me! I knew you were a great artist, but Hot Damn! you really pulled out all the stops on this one. Kudos to you!

Ghostclown (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/6/2010 10:03

Amazing job, bro.

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 4/6/2010 09:08

 beautiful characters and item icons

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 4/6/2010 07:15

Crikey. Beautiful!

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/6/2010 05:22


haven't followed the wip thread in the forum, but damn, this must have taken forever to pixel. so much yummy details. especially diggin' all the little items that are spread all over the screens and florence's buildings & pavement


Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 4/6/2010 05:14

Pitch it! This needs to be made for the DS!

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 4/6/2010 04:31

Ooh God.

That's impressive.

Vitruvian man looks awkward compared to the rest though.

The  darker slabs in the gardens are too dark in some areas, it could be improved.

But God....

Mis-BUG (Level 9 Bio Mutant) @ 4/5/2010 23:55

Ok.. now I want to play this :D

Victor Rojo (Level 10 King Ghidorah) @ 4/5/2010 23:36

10/10 and inspiring... By this we love pixel art ^^

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 4/5/2010 19:49

 Very awesome. Character sprites remind me of Minish Cap.


You gotta finish the Picasso shmup some day, though. :P

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 4/5/2010 19:45

Yay, awesomesauceness :D 

MarthisMarth (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/5/2010 16:28

The pallete and the clean look are very professional. Big thumps up here.

stonewall (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/5/2010 14:33

Gorgeous! I really would like to play all your game mockups. <3 <3 <3

Perkele (Level 4 Murderer) @ 4/5/2010 13:55

Followed this piece in the WIP thread and am seriously amazed how this turned out right now, excellent job - but i suppose you know that yourself anyway. Your mock-ups are constantly getting better and, as already mentioned once, I'm looking forward to an Escher- or Magritte-themed one. Any chance that you might ever create an actual game?

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/5/2010 13:31

Stuningly fab.
