Modern games go GameBoy

gb-game-1.jpg

A wonderful Photoshop contest over at the Pixelation forums: modern video games go pea soup GameBoy, with entries (among others) for Guitar Hero, BioShock, ICO, Okami, Sam & Max and Flashback. This one is Bioshock… I would play the fuck out of that port.

    the intro should be ” A year ago, over at Pixelations Forum …”

    That contest appears to have been from sept 2007 and lots of pics are already gone (from their photobucket and whatnot locations) …

    But cool nonetheless

    @caipirina: meme track is:

    InsertCredit posted about this a week ago (pointing that it was an old competition)…

    After that other geek websites sniffed the news… anyway it’s a cool news!

    Cool news. But in the future, please refrain from upscaling pixel art. It defeats the purpose. Maybe simply create a mosaique of multiple images to get the minimum size you need for a post.

    Back to topic, some of those images look like the respective game would’ve been fun!

    You can upscale pixel art in Photoshop. Just set the resampling option in the “Image Size” dialog to “Nearest Neighbor”.

    That is all.
