fetus8 haven’t played it myself, but it fascinates the heck out of me! Seems like the materials/elements systems of BOTW taken to the extreme. What’s even more impressive is that the devs seem to have made a coherent game around such emergent and free form mechanics!
I can’t find any screenshots offhand, but Fireshark levels tend to begin and end on an airstrip with these little tiny green soldiers who march around and sometimes make formations of arrows and such. It’s super cute.
Ahahah perfect. Some literal little graphics.
kory This game is really good, I need to finish it! Kind of the best X-Files game ever…
The Outfoxies when you move away from your opponent and the screen scales all the way out to keep you both visible. God, I wish I could enjoy this game more
Recently played through the absolutely charming Harmful Park—took me about twice as long as it should have because I paused every few minutes to document some of the virtuosic little tiny pixel masterpieces. Here’s a few of the highlights (that piggy’s face brings me so much joy):
the teeny little bugs in zero mission!
rayman from rayman 1 (after getting shrunk)
the sprites are smaller than they seem: his head, eyes, mouth, hair, hands, feet, and body are separate sprites.
One of the first DOS games I remember owning (we didn’t get a computer until I think it was 1990, we got a 286) is BattleTech: The Crescent Hawk’s Revenge. It is an early proto-RTS, and had an amazing manual detailing the catalogue of BattleMechs, however the presentation of them was somewhat little-tiny:
Pictured are House Steiner Jenner (in silver)
and a House Kurita Locust (in red)
Shoutout to these tiny birds in GG Aleste 3
tokucowboy …which are a wink to Battle Garegga’s famous flamingos:
All games in the style of Stephen Biesty’s works make pretty good nominees for this thread. Such as…
The Tower and its sequels / clones:
The Azito series:
Of Mice and Sand:
Those are all great examples!! I especially love that tower one.
And the second one kinda reminds me of FTL which has some decent tiny graphics.
New to the US gacha game World Flipper is full of tiny graphics for all of your characters, but they ruined it because I don’t see how they are ever going to be able to top the mushroom person introduced in the first chapter:
thebryanjzx90 so cheerful and innocent it’s perverted.
thebryanjzx90 oh man wow dunno if I can handle all this action
Edit: oh dear the game just made me murder 1,000 shroombos
Your character sprites become very tiny when you enter a Gear hangar in Xenogears!
