Random Pixel Art #01

I think I'm going nuts working on Blue Giant non-stop, so I shall take a 10-minute break and show some of the random pixel artwork I've worked on for fun.

A chicken sprite I made for a random runner idea that we could implement in a few days. This chicken is supposed to "fire" explosive eggs from its rear - a move that destroys enemies and serves as an air-jump. Talk about killing 2 birds with one stone.

Another runner idea, this time featuring a man running from a horde of zombies as he runs from building to building. Think Canabalt with zombies. Never did finish the prototype. (A modified version of this sprite was used in Day X).

Lately I've taken a liking to going for a minimalistic presentation, such as the sprites above. These are for a game tentatively titled "Futile Hunt" (I've posted a few entries about it). I'm been working on this title on the side for a couple of weeks now (like about a few hours of work per week) - it hasn't gone very far as of yet, but I'm interested to see how this idea turns out.

This is actually the first complete project Jon and I worked on (saved for school projects). I had an idea to make a "Karateka" with guns. The end result is a relatively fresh idea - but a somewhat boring game. We did not release the title; instead, we intend to improve upon it before releasing it.
