Has anyone else ever dreamed in pixels? I normally donít, but the past few nights Iíve had some fairly lucid dreams of pixel art, including visions of a totally kickass shmup.

Oh cool. I once had a dream about a very simple shmup, b&w like you used to get on old mobile phones. I was playing it vigorously in my head, and i remember waking up completely revitalized almost like it was the best sleep i've ever had - like i'd been doing mental exercise. I drew the mechanics of the game down on some paper but it doesn't make any sense to me now.

Yar. Each time I've had a pixel dream I feet quite invigorated and inspired afterwards. I need to draw the ideas out before they fade away, but it almost feels like cheating...as if I really didn't create the images and I'm stealing the idea from some one else.

Futurama news:

This is most likely a publicity stunt (comicon is in a week and the full cast will be there revealing futurama info) but they are "looking for new voice actors", for every character.
Apparently the cast were asking for around $75,000 per episode (Simpsons VA's get $400,000 per episode), due to their budget being so cut they can't afford it.

Honestly, I'm not worrying, this feels llike a publicity stunt and a little jab at their obsessive fans.
If any new voice actors are hired, my money is on them only being used in a cold open and after the intro it's revealed that their voices were caused by some farnsworth technology.


edit-
Comicon has been and gone, turns out it's for real :(

I found this Japanese dot app called EDGE2 (fetch, Tim Langdell!), which seems pretty sweet. You have some promotionish dirty tools, some graphic galeish stuff, dither patterns, grids for isometric pixeling, animation and stuff like that. Too bad it's all in Japanese, so it's hard to get into. Just a curiosity for most of us, I guess.

Excellent stuff.

While this C64 TV ad from 1982 is totally funky, I wonder how mind blowing it would've been if they had had time to learn to use C64's capabilities to the same extent as in these later demos.

First Punaji, now Pixeljoint.com is down...the end of the world is fixing to come. Gentlemen, prepare yourselves for the final battle...

   Also, I've been lurkin on the site a bit, and have noticed that the Star Ocean sphere mock up challenge is very lonely. Feel bad for it. Would attempt something for it, but everytime I think of something, it just seems so bland....must be what others are thinking when they think about participating for it as well...oh well.
