I’ve been corresponding with a couple fine gentlemen who answered the call for pixel artists, and I’m completely blown away how they have stepped up to the challenge. Between the two of them they have basically redrawn the tiles for the entire game — and I haven’t even found a home for some of Kyle’s cave tiles yet. Take a tour of the newly spruced up ship and planet surface:
It looks like a completely new game. It’s kind of unbelievable what a difference a little quality time with some artists makes. I never thought I would get such high quality work from volunteers! Thanks a ton, contributors!
I also filled in the bottom surface of the ship, and you can see how it settled into the rocky terrain when it crash landed.
Tomorrow I’m going on a two-week trip to Seoul and Indonesia, so except for long plane rides I’ll be out of touch with game work. Let’s hope I can get a few updates in on the road!
