Hey, I haven't submitted anything in forever, so here's the title screen of a small, cross-platform freeware game.

I didn't have that much time to work on it, so it's a bit sloppy. I put most of the effort into the tiles and sprites. The ice tiles took way too long to finish, so I regret choosing that style. Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with it.

It's open source and the assets are Creative Commons licensed, so you can find all the tile sheets and sprites in the GitHub repository.

I remember this from pixelation as well, and also remember that I suggested you make the dino colder as well, in terms of color in the drawing. Now I'm glad you didn't. You already knew this, I didn't. But a couple years later and I clearly understand why it looks so much nicer this way.

Anyways, it turned out very nicely. The tiles are very crisp.

The cutest pixel dino I have ever seen.

Marvellous piece! :)

Great to have you back. There's a distinct lack of Norwegians here. Cool concept for a game. A bit unusual to see you draw something without ghosts or intestines hanging out.

Damn, that top half is nice. Bottom is a little underwhelming.

Looks fun, great art too! Four years is quite a long time O_O

Wonderful tiles, and that's a really adorable clever title.
