Any game by Konjak (except I guess Chalk and Tripline, since those don't use pixel art).

The original La Mulana's pixel art does what it wants to perfectly. The remake's art is great too, but I think the original's is even more impressive.

Konjak is a fucking genius, I just hope he doesn't give up on The Iconoclasts.

No there are not. Because most poor shit-eating Western developers (or "indies" as you call them) have a sick obsession with 3D modelling and realism.

Definitively. I've read not long ago that the game is progressing normally, so I have hopes he'll be able to finish it this time.

You must have missed those threads. It's not even close to an example of impressive sprite art. And those aren't even sprites, are they? Just low-res models.

I'm referring to the slowdown in parts of the animation, I'm guessing the parts with the most movement. In this one it starts off full speed, but when it starts moving it slows down. Maybe in the actual game it just speeds up the frames per second of the animation or something

Ah, okay I see it now. Some of these frames display for 10ms (100 fps), which is usually a bad idea with GIF because most GIF viewers have trouble displaying the frames that quickly. In fact it doesn't even make sense why they did that anyway since I doubt the game itself runs at 100 fps.

A simple fix though is to cut some of the frames though and increase the display time for the others around them.

Here's one of them with the fix I described.

As a side note, GIF comment said their original was made with unregistered Animagic GIF V 1.06b. Maybe they just did the frame rate wrong by accident.

Bah, that just looks really jerky now. The frame rate needs to be adjusted based on whatever it's intended to be in-game, which I'm sure wasn't 100 fps.

I admire you for sticking with it, but fuck it must be frustrating. They passed up on so many good ideas at first but then nope, we're just making Pokemon mexico with only one kind of environment and theme to everything and having shitty retarded ideas like an ant that has axes for hands and also a butt full of water but it's a fire ant.

Sure the regions is diverse, but the Pokemon aren't. They're all brown and muted colors except when they decide to make something red for no reason other than "lel mehico'

I'm gonna have to agree with you about that. There' is too much brown coloured mons. But i don't think it's because muh mexico.
I've noticed a lot of the community likes mundane shit.
I don't know how much you know about the project, but for a while there was a potential gym leader who was the most boring fuck ever.

His entire concept was
>He's a life guard. He's insecure about his new position as a gym leader. By the way, he's gay.

And as an apology for off topic, here's a sprite.

Volgarr had some really nice looking sprites, but the background itself was drab.

Kind of make sense tho, since the graphics guy was mainly a character designer, not a background expert.

If only that game would ever come out.

>>248930232

Is this a good game? It looks fun.

>>248919352
I'm glad I'm not the only one who think R:TU looks far better.

I'm kind of bummed HLD made so much more with the KS, but at least RTU was still got a fair amount itself.

doesn't five years mark the game as being inevitably canceled due to inability to solve critical problems?

>>248924932
Sue has shit stats compared to Shin. Both of them will easily hit their speed caps, but Shin gets much higher HP, DEF, and STR, which is what is important.

There's no "problems" per se, the guy is REALLY slow to add new features.

project rain
got funded in February
can't comment on development because I didn't fund it (didn't know about it till march) but it was in an 'alpha' state before the kickstarter. the stated goals were
*complete realization (basically going from engine-complete to game-complete)
*hire C++ dude to optimize
*quality control
so I imagine it'll be done within a year or two

and I was looking at his dev blog, it's pretty interesting and the guy seems pretty intelligent. It looks like he completed the engine within a year of starting the dev blog (when he seems to have decided it would make a viable game)

From what I can tell, he's the kinda guy i'd trust to do good work, efficiently
>>
>>248936837
Someone will viral it, no doubt about that.
Probably not the dev, but I'm sure someone will try to force it until everyone hates it.
>>
>>248912406
Cave Story is pretty good, if only because Pixel actually obeys 4th gen palette and sprite size limitations for the most part.
>>
>>248937034
I remember when The Forest trailer came out /v/ was cumming buckets.

It's still their faults for releasing early access though.
>>
>>248937187
No, Pixel even admitted that his graphics weren't good.
>>
>>248935317

This has pretty good animation, though for some reason I'm just not a fan of this type of style where everything looks likes 2 to 3 tone brown or grey mess. I get the same feeling whenever I look at games like HLD or even RoR, I don't know what it is about the style but it makes my penis soft
>>
>>248937793
For efficiency's sake and uniform theme

More colorful example would be Owl Boy but that's not coming out anytime soon

as for color, I think the simple pallet works well for the kind of game that it is. Too much color would make it difficult to focus on the characters themselves, who mostly come in a pretty distinct variety. The game's just too fast with too many moving parts for significant color variation to be viable, I think.

but obviously, I'm pretty biased about this
>>
>>248938278
The way things get animated reminds me a lot of Intrusion 2

>>248938632
Yeah that is a design aeisthetic and the it works really well with the skeleton animation as shaded parts tend to stretch and look muddy using that method.

>>248938278
I was going to post asking whether those were in-engine animations or a hand drawn mockup since the animation looked way too varied, but this explains it well. It looks fantastic.
