twenty-five bad hombres

pixel sundays has been on hiatus because most of the pixels i’ve been producing have been for calamity annie. now that the game is done, i have plenty of stuff to show you!

here are the twenty-five hombres that appear in the game (excluding five extra characters available to players who donate). they were all drawn with the same palette of six colors. i tried to use recurring visual motifs to reinforce the feel of an 8-bit game, where palette or tile swaps might be used to preserve memory. the more unique characters will only appear in the later rounds.

  1. Nah, it’s obviously the kid from ICO.

    The whole lineup looks like a set of Guess Who cards.
    ‘Are you wearing a top?’
    ‘Yes. Are you wearing any red?’

  2. I haven’t donated (yet), and I’ve seen a couple that are either shaded or not shown there.

    Love the game, though.

  3. everyone asks that. he’s a contemporary leatherman not as out-of-place as he ought to be among the leathers and ropes of the old west.

    but yes, one of the names i was considering giving him was “hard guy”.
