Mockup Frenzy #6: Musical Inspiration!

on: November 16, 2007, 06:26:07 pm
Mockup Frenzy #6: Musical Inspiration!



Resolution: 240x160
Colors: Up to 32
Theme: Games Inspired By Music
Start Day: November 16th, 2007
Deadline: November 30th, 2007
Notes:  This will be the last Mockup Frenzy of the year, as Secret Santa will be starting again very soon, so let's see some badass mockups!!  Your mockup should be inspired by a specific song this time.  I recommend pop songs as they will be the most familiar to a majority of the forum members, and therefore the most fun, but you are welcome to do classical, metal, jazz, whatever floats your boat.  Just find a song that inspires you and make your mockup based on that!  For example, the banner was inspired by Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt 2, and you can also check out Adarias's "What's the Frequency Kenneth?" mockup for more ideas.  Finally, there is no set palette for this, just use whatever colors you want!



Is this your first Mockup Frenzy?  Why not check out the rules & results from Mockup Frenzy #1: Mobility!, Mockup Frenzy #2: Ninjas!, Mockup Frenzy #3: GB Demakes!, Mockup Frenzy #4: Invasion!, and Mockup Frenzy #5: Horrorween!



RESULTS:

Sorry for the INSANELY LATE COLLATING AND UPLOADING!  Happy holidays, pixelators  :D

Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (Pt. 1). Very nice.

I really should enter this. Let's hope I have the time.
thanks Dogmeat!

I wanna try and do one of these mockup challenges so i think i'm gunna give it a shot, since this is the last one this year n' all.
I picked this song by Incubus, A Certain Shade of Green, since it was fast paced and had something to do with a colour. Gave me the idea of a platformer in which you have a time limit to get to a certain destination, possibly a place which is a certain shade of green... i started picking out colours and they feel quite dreamy to me, so i think i wanna go with the concept you're being constricted by dream-like hinderances, such as the feeling of being pulled back with ropes as you run etc. ('Are your muscles bound by ropes', a line from the song). Not quite sure how it could be made more interesting though, rather than just keeping the right directional button pushed down. But hey, i don't need to go too far into it.  :y:

What i've gotten so far. Inspired by stuff i see around here i don't doubt.  :angel:



The lamp would be massive, and the road leads down to the bottom of a canyon and where the lamp shines... >_>

You can listen to a clip of the song here.

This does seem like an awesome challenge, I think I'll start working on my soon enough.

Also, I like the simple-style on yours Larwick  :)

I call Slither by Velvet Revolver ^^

I'm not going to pretend this is a small task either; certainly none of us here can claim to have accomplished it.  it's the realm of masters.  still, it's what we all have to try for.

No more calling. Either participate or don't. Nobody's going to have the same idea you do, and even if they do, what's wrong with more than one interpretation?

HEH.

Posting WIP so I can pretend that I'm one of the first :]



Won't reveal song yet, that'd be boring = A=

Highlights in hair looking pretty sucky. Dangit.

Edit:

This is totally an update!



Now she has a power arm!

Actually, if I think about it, revealing the song can't hurt. O:

Baby Blue by Halcali

I kind of got inspired by the music, style, PV and the challenge banner :]

If you comment my taste in music you get banned. (Eh yeah. Eh. Secret agreement with moderators... Yeah. Promise.)
