    You might not be familiar with TIGSource's bootleg demake competition, but to sum it up it's about remaking original games as if they were made on even older technology, with (even) simpler graphics and "preferably one that adds/changes game mechanics in a significant way or reveals something interesting about the game".

    Kinten dropped by to point out his Demake project - Fillauth. You can check out the game's intro here, and here are some The-Chair-Is-4-Pixels-esque screens:

    We'll get back to you guys with this when it's done.

    Ok that intro made me laugh (Panda disease) :D , also the thought of someone putting this for the BS fans at their forum causing massive seizures. The kids nowadays have epilepsy through graphics in reverse.

    Some pretty cool ideas in the competition. Half Life one looks promising (:

    I'm only 16 and even when i was little i didnt' had all the latest consoles so i never played some of the first games that were out on the market and i never got to see the graphics in those games. But please, fallout is what you can consider an old game and even so i love fallout and the graphics ( even if not state of the art like the ones in fallout 3, oh my bad...), but the graphics in that game are absolute shit. They are just too bad. You almost can't see what's written in the screenshots and can't make anything out of the images. You would spend half the time trying to understand what was in the game. This is just a bad ideia coming true. But this is just my personal opinion, if anyone likes it i won't try to change them.

    Yes. That's kind of the idea.

    Is something unclear about the concept Demake?

    As if the fan mods that try to add new contents weren't bad enough, what is the point of a Demake?
    I'm playing the old Space Quest series from start to finish and primitive graphics make it difficult to interact with the environment at times.

    But the relentless pixel-hunting is all part of the experience!!!!...isn't it?

    The Intro is indeed awesome.

    The pseudo-Fallout intro was funny. The sub-CGA screenshots are some sort of art. The games... I am sure are horrible and pointless. Just like nuclear war.

    Yes. Why would anyone waste time on doing such things?

    I think it looks intresting, reminds me heavily of the year 92.

    Remember the three pixel mouth movements in the adventure games of old?

    What is the point of this?

    It seems like those people who learn to use MS paint to extremes. Yeah, it's pretty neat, but a complete waste of time.

    Making games for fun is never a complete waste of time.

    There's more to a good game than pretty graphics, my most memorable and favourite games were on the Commodore 64.

    It's a little thing we like to call "Game Play" perhaps you've heard of it? It's more important that eye candy.

    It's also a design contest/challenge.

    Don't get all smart ass.

    If they where making their own game, yea.

    But re-making a game with low graphics, sorry, waste of time.

    demaking, not re-making

    @topic

    awesome project, awesome graphics, awesome competition, awesome idea ... pure awesomeness :clap:

    Keep up the good work Kinten (& team) - from what I've seen @TIGsource, you should be able to win the contest. Your project seems to be the best organized one - as you already have that many gui & even a map editor up and running. (not to mention the intro... :shock: )
