This game needs to be real!

Thought the exact same thing!

Great pallete.

So lush.

King of Games @ 11/30/2013 11:55 commented on Chimera boss fight

Dope, but I wish the sprites were a bit darker in contrast to help them pop from the BG more.

B-Ball not dead!!

King of Games @ 11/11/2013 11:16 commented on BIT them ALL

Hell yeah, some great subpixeling!

King of Games @ 11/7/2013 16:33 commented on Lordmancer characters

The shadows are so good here.

King of Games @ 11/7/2013 16:31 commented on The pixel connoisseur

Love the concept.

King of Games @ 11/3/2013 10:24 commented on Contraposte

I want to get this printed and hang it up. Know any good sites for that?

King of Games @ 9/17/2013 12:53 commented on Map, The Plains

Love the rocks.

King of Games @ 9/8/2013 17:53 commented on Suburbia Updated

We in it!

King of Games @ 9/5/2013 09:43 commented on Suburbia Updated

Is it cool to use transparency?

King of Games @ 8/25/2013 23:19 commented on Guaxinim

Solid pixeling, but the priorities are messed up, mostly because of the contrast/values.

The sprites aren't reading well from the background, same with the HUD. Remember that our eyes are first drawn to the brightest object, which is the object highest in value. Usually that is the sprite/HUD layer.

In the spring version, the BG trumps everything else. It keeps beckoning the viewer's eye back to look at it, instead of the characters or objects in the forground. The function of the BG should be for setting and decoration, which should recede and give the eye some areas for rest.

Love the concept and the overall mood/design. Hope this helps.

@Marhias: It only takes the money out of your account at the end of the funding period if it is successful.

You're right, the lily pad is interactable and should have stronger priority than the tree. I kind of cheated on the tree lightening up the canopy in PS to keep the layers readable (before it was similar in color to the grass and blended in a bit, a good testament to the fine line in balancing visual elements.)

As to the texturing, tbh I was reffing DE pretty hard from his work in Americana Dawn. I don't think it stands out too much and is a fun style to mess with while not having to render each leave individually.

King of Games @ 6/19/2013 21:56 commented on Alacrity Mission: Swamp Mockup

I never officially played SoE but I know of it and respect it. It was one of the refs they gave me so I'm glad this is somewhat evocative of that.

King of Games @ 5/29/2013 13:39 commented on Super Mario Bros: Mario Paint

Very creative take on the classic, I love the concept. Would maybe like some of that AA on the other blue brushstrokes, possibly  the clouds too. I also agree with the grass comment, the distinction between it and the rocks almost reads as the same.

The tusks on the goomba are a nice touch!

King of Games @ 5/26/2013 11:23 commented on Oneiric Screens 1

This is great, really pushing GB limitations to the limit. However some readabilty issues in the sprite (not enough of the "black or white" to make it stand out from the tiles enough. Also on the left screen, why does the tree weave around those last two letters? Let the title be bold and on top-most layer.

King of Games @ 5/14/2013 14:41 commented on Lijj' Brijj (bridge)

Love the cliffs!

King of Games @ 4/28/2013 22:53 commented on Worldmap

I know it's only 2 colors, but would be great with some AA.

King of Games @ 1/25/2013 00:06 commented on Dragons lair

Reminds me of the Hobbit.

King of Games @ 1/1/2013 23:40 commented on Gypsy Forest

What kind of sprites/sprite style would you use for something like this?

King of Games @ 11/15/2012 19:21 commented on dwogs

Looks almost like a "regular show" style.
