wow. this is good.

The fire is a palette shift animation?  Also I my last jawdrop was with "the last night" from timesoret now I count from this one.

Looks very nice... only one complaint:  the "fire" doesn't look or behave like fire.

Nevercreature (Level 9 Whale Shark) @ 10/23/2014 21:52

Awesome, master Vierbit.

Lyud (Level 2 Pufferfish) @ 10/23/2014 20:08

8th wonder of the world!

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/21/2014 20:02

Looks great, but the fireplace is brighter than the fire.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 10/21/2014 16:03

Nice work as usual. Though the overly detailed pages of the books is a bit jarring. 

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/21/2014 10:11

This looks like it took a LONG time to make. Good effort! 

FinoRaptor (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 10/21/2014 07:21

This is flawless and jawdropping, after watching your earlier pixelart this is just outstanding, all the details including the bear fur!.

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 10/21/2014 06:38

That bear fur .

albertov (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/21/2014 02:46

Man, fantastic job! From 15 to 80 colors = "a bit more advanced", hehe.. I like your subtle use of blues, as always. 6/6

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/21/2014 02:39

The fur on the bear is incredible.

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 10/21/2014 00:21

This is an exceptional work and it reminds me the good old days of PC gaming. Looks like a classic icon adventure from 90s you know. The only thing I could critize is the flame animation. It looks kind of like a liquid in zero gravity rather than flames but it still looks very nice. I can not believe how good the scene is. You are really a master of pixels.

matriax (Level 5 Sniper) @ 10/21/2014 00:11

vierbit how much hours? :O

Geoglatico (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/20/2014 21:08

Amazing work! congrats 

Evidence (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 10/20/2014 19:23

damnnnn !

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 10/20/2014 19:05

I don't want to seem like a real creeper, but I think I'm a little aroused at the moment :o

Some nitpicks:

  • The fire seems a little too flat, I think it would benefit from a white (or lighter yellow thrown in there).
  • I'm a little confused about the lack of AA in certain areas.
  • Also, I definitely know you can do better than the plain 50/50 dithering in the doorway and on the box.

Regardless, this is still pretty spectacular :D

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 10/20/2014 18:49

This is glorious. I can't decide if I like the fire over the fur. But all of it is awesome.

MasterSky (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 10/20/2014 18:01

HOLY WOW! amazing work!

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 10/20/2014 17:11


I think you just put a lot of snk fighting game background art to shame

Peyton (Level 7 Assassin) @ 10/20/2014 15:34


Just wow.

Lanarky (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 10/20/2014 15:01

The detail of the background is just awesome.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 10/20/2014 14:50

Well, as soon as I saw that slanted red "PREVIEW" box I knew I was about to see something awesome :D

Motrox (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/20/2014 13:06

I like the fur texture :)
