September 30th, 2007Notes:
To sum up, de-makes are the inverse of the "next-gen" game update. Take a new game, and roll it back to an older piece of hardware. Only we're going to be rolling it WAY back; all the way to the original Game Boy! Goldeneye 2D is a perfect example, and the inspiration for this theme!
To help you get started, I've included a few choice screens from the better-looking GB games of the past. Feel free to use any of the palettes in these images, or invent your own 4 color monochrome ramp!
(Castlevania II, Spiderman 3, Tiny Toons, Trip World, Universal Soldier) You're welcome to follow the strict Game Boy spec, but it is not a requirement for this competition.
The basic specs for the system are as follows:
- 2-bit color (black, dark grey, light grey, white)
- 8x8 tiles
- 8x8, 8x16 and 16x8 sprites
- 1 4-color bg palette
- 2 3-color sprite palettes (that must choose from same 4 colors as the bg)
- Background tiles each get a foreground/background flag
- No more than 10 sprites per scanline on the raster
Is this your first Mockup Frenzy?
