Aquaria was made by a Pixelation old-timer Dusty, you have to play it.
Hmm, was it? Who was it made by?
Derek Yu.

Heh, I indeed remember him and he definitely has a known name when it comes to Indie :) Wasn't aware he made that game, though!

Curiously, is he the one who was REALLY good with DOOM graphics/guns way back?

Derek Yu = The indie scene to me, hehe
With games like Aquaria, Spelunky(A great pixeled game!) and Diabolika for the iphone, and with a great community website that I think he runs with a few guys(Tigsource), Derek is by far my favourite person in the Independent game scene.

I'm a fan I guess.

:/  I've been very lazy recently. Been pushing pixels allot, but I don't seem to post allot of it anywhere. Time will come and I'll be bothered to post for some help.

Hmm, I have a paypal with like $3 or so on it, guess I'll donate that. I'd donate more but I don't really have the means or the money to. I've never played any of the games, but I've heard of World of Goo.

Lugaru is hilarious! Try it.

A rainbow now truly in the dark.

:(

Does anyone know if he was still making art? It seems like he stopped during the 90s...

He had several strokes in the late 90s and subsequently lost the drawing ability in his right arm. Being the badass ol' Fritz was he taught himself to draw and paint with his left though. If you check out the wonderful 2003 documentary Painting With Fire you can see some of the stuff he did during his last years. I'm sure a lot of his unpublished later work is going to see the light of day now.

Speaking of which, I just saw this cool pixel tribute that AdamAtomic did over at kotaku, among other entries. Nice stuff!  :y:

Is it still cool to use RPGMaker 2k, or am I behind on the times?  I've been throwing around the idea of putting together an rpg in my free time, but I don't know what I should do code-wise.   Basically I want to focus on story and graphics, and the less work I have to do on everything else, the better.  Suggestions?

RPG Maker VX  is the newest one I think, think you're several versions behind.. that must be pretty outdated. But don't quote me because I've never used it myself.

Yeah, 2k is ages old. VX is the newest and it's pretty damn good.
