i had an idea for a mystery/horror game long ago, but it was basically a visual novel - so until now i never made proper pixel art for it. however as you can see, 'seems all i pixel turns out to look kinda cute.... even if it's supposed to be a murder mystery thriller... ^^;
anyway, idea here was, that all living, real characters are just displayed as black shadows, while background and other creatures are in full color / more detailed...
that's all.
i THINK this pic has 16 colors...

This is VERY cool! In addition to the silhouette "real" characters, I like how bleak and bare the surroundings look.

 Aha! nice one. These things remind me of the Shadows (I *think* that's what they were called) from Torment... you know, the ones that spawned every time your character 'died' :D

 Cool :D  and 18 colors I believe, so you're still well under the max 25!
