Ah yes. Hopefully someone will post in this thread tomorrow so I won't forget to start working on a background...

Oh, I completely forgot about this! I started working on something, but then I got distracted. I hope I can finish in time. Otherwise, I'll post a WiP.

Thanks for posting, cat. Good luck finishing in time.

I have now technically started mine, but I won't have time to work on it today since I need to finish my MAGS entry...

You want me to post a brown rectangle?

If that's what you call "technically started" then maybe not...

Found some time to finish it up. I wanted to try something with a limited palette for a change:

Nice, a Gameboy game.

cat, it's lovely! It does have that subtle Nintendo air as VW pointed out. So beautiful.

Thanks! To be honest, I used the colors from this beautiful artwork:

Ah oh. I just realized something. Is this open through the end of today or has it already technically ended?

I hope it's still open, here's my entry. I started a bit late, so it lacks some polish...

I wanted to do pure pixel art, but I lack the energy today.

Still open indeed, thanks guys for your submissions. I was planning to keep this open until around midnight CST.

Flugeldufel, that looks awesome! It has a strong classic LucasArts vibe, super adventuregamey. And I love the texture you produced for the rocks.

VampireWombat, glad you managed to deliver your entry after all! Pure pixel art or not, that's one gloomy piece of art. Nice job with the foggy silhouettes in the background, it adds a really creepy feel to the picture.

Please don't close it yet... I'm fast pixeling...  :-D

Edit: Finished! (though I think it's a bit too noisy)

Cassie - You didn't have to rush that much. There's still almost 9 1/2 hours.

Kastchey - I always intended to. I just thought I'd be working on it at least some yesterday...
I wasn't sure how well the fog would work since it's a combination of stuff from Inkscape and GIMP.

I know, but I have other stuff to do... besides pixel art bores me to do, which is why I'll never be "good" at it anyway.  (laugh)

Cassie doing pixel, cool! ;) Thanks for getting another entry in.
The noisy texture actually creates quite an interesting effect. Very nice!

As VW said, there's still a few hours left if anyone else is working on an entry.

Looks sweet, Creamy! It's so consistently unreal that it looks like a snapshot from an uncanny dream.

Big THANK YOU to everyone who submitted the entries! Background Blitz is now officially alive again :)

The voting phase is open until the 6th of October.
