Mockup Frenzy #4: Invasion!

on: October 01, 2007, 05:23:08 am
Mockup Frenzy #4: Invasion!

Resolution: 224x144 (or 144x224)
Colors: Arne's 16-color Palette

Theme: Invasion!
Start Day: October 1st, 2007
Deadline: October 15th, 2007
Notes:  Click here to read about the development of Arne's palette, and to see some great little mockups by Arne and Tomas.  224x144 is the resolution used by a little-known portable console called the Wonderswan Color.  However, I have no idea what the specs are for that machine, nor do I care!  As for the theme...you're free to interpret it however you choose...I am looking forward to seeing some creative interpretations this time 'round!!  Ah, .TakaM has just informed us that the screen was frequently used portrait-style, so 144x224 mockups are happily welcomed as well.  Good luck!



Is this your first Mockup Frenzy?  Why not check out the rules & results from Mockup Frenzy #1: Mobility!, Mockup Frenzy #2: Ninjas!, and Mockup Frenzy #3: GB Demakes!



RESULTS:

Souly, ptoing, madsk8tard:


Pixelfish, Skull, arachne:


Adarias, jonkk, helm, kindred, mice:


Great job everybody!  Sorry about the whole "no banner" thing...I will definitely have one for MF5!!

It's also worth mentioning a lot of wonderswan/colour games had the screen portrait oriented since the system could also be held that way ^-^
so, not strictly widescreen

Doubt I'll finish this.
But I thought I'd post it here just in-case I decide to finish it up. D:
If I have another update it will probably have some aliens in it.

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

That's exactly what I first thought of ptoing.   ;D

this palette is so not me, but this topic so is!

posting major WIP here so that i'll force myself to make time to finish it:

update slightly still heavy wip

basic hack'n'slash with RPG elements, it's the Viking Invasion!!

play as vikings, celts, germans, slavs, or amerindians to resettle your people, defend your homeland, or take advantage of the havoc to make a name for yourself

blue guys are yours, drab guys are theirs, right now only 1 unit, a good viking swordsman.  the floating ring indicates he is one of your controllable Thanes (you can have AI helpers as well in your battles).

A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

That is a thing of beauty, Adarias. Particularly 2x.

Makes me wish you'd use more standard palettes more often. ;)
Oh yes naked women are beautiful
But I like shrimps more haha ;)
