I'm loving the game so far. Also, art by Deceiver.

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 3/4/2021 15:47

I think Loop Hero was made by artists here:


I personally was disappointed and decided not to keep it but the art is really good.

pistachio (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/4/2021 01:33

yes, man, hardcore tech restrictions really bring me back. nothing like a 48x48 canvas to crunch them details into. just gotta ask SteveM how he did that subpixelling...

StoneStephenT (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 3/1/2021 18:18

I just realized that two of my votes went to them.

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/1/2021 17:47

I want to vote for like a dozen of them, and they're all by StevenM...

StoneStephenT (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 3/1/2021 12:39

Damn, voting for that Link sprite challenge made me wish we had more than three votes, or at least some form of ranked/scored voting. Lotsa great entries on that one.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/27/2021 12:12

Merci Chris!

Christoballs (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 2/27/2021 08:05

bon anniversaire manu !

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/27/2021 06:29

Thanks buddy! Was kinda hoping nobody would notice tho haha

gawrone (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/26/2021 03:56

I have one: could it also link to the PixelJoint page of that art? If someone would like to comment/rate/fav something from the results.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/21/2021 14:16

I've already said this, but let me repeat here that your tool is pretty great!

Motrox (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/21/2021 13:07

I'm testing out a tool for color palette based search on pixeljoint data. It uses a distance measure on color palette data that I've been developing for the last couple of months. You can reach it at http://www.pelgine.com.

I've gotten a lot of useful feedback so far. Here are the suggestions:

1.) allow for scrolling all the way back up,

2.) allow for adding your own hexcodes,

3.) make button selection more obvious,

4.) random palette button,

5.) upload images for search.

I plan on updating the application when I have a break again, which will likely be around spring break. 

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 2/14/2021 16:03

There is but it requires someone with admin level access to dig through the backend of code.

I remember because I was helping Ens and Jal troubleshoot some bugs back in the day and they said something about the site creating redundant copies of every upload.

But like everything else it's a bug not a feature. XD

Trick17 (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/11/2021 18:05

Thanks anyways. I tried wayback machine and others, but they don't have it. I think it's just lost, but it 's not that important.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/11/2021 10:54
No, sadly not. I think actually the only way to get a file removed from the server is to replace it with another file (unlike removing the submission, which merely hides it...)
Your best bet is to check if the Internet Archive has stored a copy!

Trick17 (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/11/2021 07:36

I have a weird question for the staff of pixeljoint: Is it possible for you to get an upload history of a piece? So you could recover a previous upload that was later replaced?

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/2/2021 15:59

Yes there is, you can find the invite link in the drop down menu under "community", just above!

binderbear (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/2/2021 13:32

Is there a PixelJoint discord?

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 2 Peon) @ 1/31/2021 20:11

Yes, I'm always going to that dang monkey's page.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/31/2021 10:25

Also on pc. It seems to happen when I have not interacted with PJ for too long. I'll message him about it some time, it's been going on so long I hardly realise it happens!

cjlm123 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/31/2021 09:43

Does anyone else find, that at least on mobile, clicking the little profile icon takes you to Sedgeman's profile instead of your own ~50% of the time? What's up with that?

DioShiba (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/18/2021 19:58

And now, I keep grinding out some work. I feel like I'm getting my mojo back into place and it got me going into a productive kind of hustle mode.

DioShiba (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/18/2021 19:57

I agree with Hapiel and Metaru on this one.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/17/2021 14:11

Yeah! Great start of a great year :)

StoneStephenT (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 1/17/2021 13:45

Feels good to post a new submission here again. And do a weekly challenge again.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/17/2021 09:59

Every year will be "worst year" only and only if you focus on the bad stuff that happens.

we've been all through some hurdles in life, it all depends on our ability to endure it and keep moving foward.

DioShiba (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/16/2021 17:04

Don't jinx it on us now, we don't want 2021 to be a shitshow like 2020....

Nah JK I hope everyone has a good year as long as you put the work into it being a good year.

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/11/2021 16:38

Happy 2021 everyone, lets hope this new year is less shite than the last.

Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 12/24/2020 08:44

Amazing stuff everyone!

Eggy (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/23/2020 03:31

Me too me too! I'm super excited!

gawrone (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 12/22/2020 11:10

I just wan't to open it already!

moondrome (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 12/22/2020 07:08

Looking forward to discovering my secret Santa 🎅. I will finish mine today!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/22/2020 03:38

Look at that queue full of presents!! And it is only getting better

Theoden (Level 8 Marshal) @ 12/14/2020 13:26


Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/14/2020 09:53

Seems like the tables have turned! 

Theoden (Level 8 Marshal) @ 12/14/2020 05:13

Execute order 404.
Google services including Youtube are down, all we have is PJ now... 
So start pixelling! 

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/14/2020 01:19

Hii Met, I was just thinking of you the other day! How are you? 

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 12/13/2020 17:55

Hey, was around the neighboorhood and felt like saying hi.

always a pleasure to check back around. Hope everyone is doing great in these final hours of the year <3

Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/9/2020 17:11

I don't know what you're talking about 

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 12/9/2020 17:08

Is that a lump of coal in sedgemonkeys stocking?

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/8/2020 00:59

a year. The gForms doesn't have just a year picker. And a best guess will do, I suppose :)

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 12/7/2020 17:08

Do...do I have to enter a specific date that I got into pixel art??

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/7/2020 11:19

I'm trying to find out why people get into pixel art. What got you excited? What were your first influences?
Join this informal mini study by filling out this form, should only take 3 minutes (1 page only). Thanks and feel free to share with other pixel artists!


Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/7/2020 01:41

All Secret Santa messages sent, check your PMs!

Eggy (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/6/2020 03:53

Same! I'm mostly wondering who I'll be assigned to, and who will be assigned to me haha.

moondrome (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 12/5/2020 06:02

looking forward to starting my secret santa :) and receiving my gift of course!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/4/2020 02:42

Reminder: You have until Sunday to sign up for Secret Santa!
