with hundreds of proposed animations each one had to be as short as possible

Bringing pixel games back would have to be the most awesime thing to do :) I am only 14 so I can't change much to the world, apart from practising pixeling. Name any projects/games you worked on ? :D

Erm...it's my job. I'm a fulltime pixel-pusher. I've worked for many of the old 8 and 16 bit companies...most are now gone. But once you're on the scene you have a reputation and either you chase work or hopefully people contact you and ask you to do stuff.

Obviously now with polygons and flash etc the pixel scene is pretty quiet (ie. virtually dead) but things could change.

I'm trying to be part of that change so watch this space...and anyone who fancies coming along for the ride, don't hesitate to contact me.

Let's bring pixel games back eh???

wow.. awesome. how did you get a job like that? (not to be rude but, i'm interested)

tandemar (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/7/2010 11:56

It was for Settlers on the GBA, can't remember when I worked on it because there's been so many places and projects since.

But yes, I am a professional pixel-pusher. I've been doing this since 1983 and so far to the best of my knowledge there's been over 240 games to date.

With a bit of luck I will reach 300 before I draw my last breath.

 What game is it for? And pixelarting is your job? That's pretty cool =P

Thanks guys, comments noted..but basically I'm a lazy type and the actual animation was put together with each frame in only once so the coder could grab the whole thing and then just run this animation whenever the player decided to "learn" something in the game.

I may get round to fixing it...but don't hold your breath. I never do graphics for fun...everything here is done for cold hard cash...I'm mercenary that way.

Mainly because it's my job.

 I think Mashimi is right about the framespeed... I think it would look better just ever-so-slightly slower =P. And maybe make some more frames at the end, as in him continuing to read his book (putting his head and arm back down, you could probable even reuse some frames...) Funny little thingy for the rest, and well done

tandemar (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/7/2010 04:58

Maybe he is...

mashimi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/7/2010 04:19

I really like it, but you should slow down the frames a bit, he looks like smart ass on crack :D
