WELCOME TO THE NATURE CONSERVATION STATION, CREW. LOOK OUT FOR THE SPACE MONKEYS, THEY BITE.

I was feeling retro and minimalistic today so I made this pixel art piece with a self-imposed challenge, to use the 32-colour palette given. 32 colours is a lot and the pixel art piece isn't necessarily very good so I don't know how good a challenge that was, but I'm relatively happy with the result and the concept of such station inspires me, so I decided to post this. Making the whole thing took about an hour.

Guessing this is what started the game on Steam? :O

 Awesome colors and details. And I agree, without AA looks nicer!

 I disagree with Schog. Without AA it looks very retroish now, and I LOVE that!

Always had a weak point for pixely art.

Are you planning on making this into a real game?

Haha! Good Work!

Looks almost like a map for Super Metroid 2.

This is really nice already, but you could spend some time AAing things (particularly the glass outlines) to make it even better.
And just to be a pedant: it would be nice if you uploaded it zoomed 1:1 instead.

 this needs to be made into a Metroid ripoff immediately

Reminds me of Metroid Fusion. This would make a GREAT game map.

jamesmorrow07, to be exactly honest, I haven't seen nor played the game. I agree though that they look really similar. The design isn't all that unique, though; I'm quite sure I've seen the same space dome thing used in a few instances. I think the idea for the dome came from a game where you live in an underwater dome (Clonk Planet).

I'm reminded of an old DOS game.  Very nice!

haha cool style

I take it this is highly referenced from Air Fortress on the NES? Because this station is almost identical to the fortress seen on the game.

Great piece with great colors, by the way.

That is cooler than the Fonz. Favorited and 5/5

Reminds me a lot of sega genesis games :D I guess that's the feeling i should have, right?

A nice and interesting look. On the bottom panel with the station - maybe and some highlights on the blue outline?

i dig this. a lot.

Really nice details!

This is great, I love it.

Jeremy - the palette was chosen by myself, albeit when choosing it I used help from some reference pictures made by Niklas Jansson (www.androidarts.com). I really like the colours so I'm quite sure they'll be used again!

 nice job!

love it


user
jeremy (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 3/20/2011 00:08

Very nice. Is the palette sourced from somewhere, or did you create it yourself?

Welcome back :f


user

Oooh, reminds me of the Megaman maps! Great work- and so fast too!


user
Hempuli (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/19/2011 17:06

Well, the themes I use usually mature in my head over a longer time, so I didn't have to plan this. I guess most of the fastness is explained with the ultra-low resolution and the overall lack of detail.

But why, thank you!


user

An hour?! I think I'd spend a couple of hours, most possibly more just on icons alone. Please tell, how do you work so fast? Only shortcut I see is that outline of plan is the same as main flying cities. There was need to come up with themes which takes time too.

Overall looks fantastic.
