Baby Bounce NES
Just a way to get free advertising for the art challenge we have ongoing right now - and a free submission to boot!
Head on over to http://opengameart.org/comment/55931 to read about the first challenge. The deadline is Jan. 15th, and it is open to all.
The theme is "Reborn" this time. I was literal, so I made it baby themed, with little pixel bundles of joy, storks, a bottle, colors both inspired by Neapolitan ice cream and the original NES color scheme, and women who catch the falling babies. In a real game you'd decide what to leave in or take out and have a background and play area with actual things to look at. But this is free and rushed to advertise the challenge, so don't expect miracles here.
If you're an artist, join in the challenge if you can. If you're not a real artist, join the club! I can barely rub two crayons together. Feel free to submit something anyway. It's meant to get the creative juices flowing, and if someone accidentally gets something usable, all the better.
