This was a secret santa 2011 gift for Zccc on Pixelation.
I had a lot of more plans for this, like having animated sprites, a title screen, some other scene mockups, and a pause menu UI design, but it'll have to be made later. Had too much other stuff that needed my attention as well during this month!

I had moved everything onto its own layer and did color adjustments separately, so there are many similar hues that could have been optimized, I'm sure, but that was not so much my concern for the piece and will not be addressed for the time being. Sorry!
