This looks incredible. I guess you can't go wrong with a team like that.

I'm having trouble finding any raw unfiltered screens, all jpegs. If anyone happens to come across some please do share.

Chobani makes my daily protein counting adventure run smoothly.

This made me check out the nutrition info....15g per pot. Where have you been all my life Chobani? I'll never eat any other brand of yoghurt again.

I can't remember where I read it but "the rhythmic expression of feeling" is about as good as a short definition can get.

LOTTA wasted space in that HUD.
You mean the sides that are empty or the thing in the center needs work? The HUD really is a work in progress like most of this. Maybe you could offer some suggestions instead of just saying it needs work? Thanks.

Pretty valid crit I think, straight to the point. Not only are the sides empty but the text is unnecessarily large. My suggestion: shrink it down to half the size and play around with the layout. Possibly split it in two, one half in each corner?

And there we have another reason to use promotion; the developer listens to user feedback and adjusts the program accordingly. I just downloaded the demo of 6, and yeah it's superb. The tilemap is the one feature gale really lacks imo.

Most experienced pixel artists will generally recommend either Promotion or graphics gale for pixels. I feel Promotion has the advantage for static images, especially tiles because of the reasons ptoing gave.

You can see the tilemap feature in action here:

There was a great thread about tiles recently linked to in the forums.

The method used here can be applied to platform game tiles too.  :)

that's funny, I was looking at that site the other day thinking "I wonder when he's going to update this?" I can kinda see what you mean Dr D about it all being similar. Still though, absolutely beautiful stuff. and surprisingly few colours in the newer work. Unlike Lomax, which was a full on aa fest. Henk will always be number 1 game pixel artist for me.

he might as well trace, it's like copying but quicker. unless we're talking about the copying for personal purposes where you're actually studying the orginal drawing, like a master copy or something.
