Author Topic: BACKGROUND BLITZ And now they've ruined it! (RESULTS)  (Read 6072 times)

We all know how it goes. For eons mankind has endeavored to seek out new frontiers and find new places previously unheard of.
And then the tourists show up.

The challenge here lies in drawing a background
where only your imagination sets the limit,
and you can make it precisely as beautiful as you want...

BUT you have to insert this sprite  into it when you are done:

Which place will the tourists ruin next? An old castle, a south-european city, a tropical paradise, a remote asteroid or something completely different?

Awesome idea! Let's see if I can come up with something...

Question: Would it be ok to to shrink the guys to half their size? I might be more comfortable with a lower resolution...

Sure, feel free to resize the sprite if you want to do a smaller background!

the tourists notived they must have taken a wrong turn or wrong teleporter somewhere when they arrived at the twintemple on planet Flokko. There is even enough time to take a picture and pick up some ancient alien stones.

This is a tough one, on the one hand I think the Graveyard looks the best, but the Tourist Trap is just so fitting.  :-\
Hmm...
I've given it a lot of thought, and my vote goes to the Graveyard by Fred Five. Sorry Grok. :(

Don't know if it's the theme, the art or both... but I really like
3. The twintemple on planet Flokko by selmiak.
