Unicorns season: Prince of Persia for the A8!

Just a bit more middle-eastern / "persian" decoration (like a couple of sexy dancers around the edges) and that should make it stand out!

I've got 4 missiles left so I'll be happy with a simple frame!

Ooh, I like it. Since we're picking bikeshed colours though, would it be possible to use a proper curly apostrophe (’) instead of the prime (')?

I'll see what I can do 😏

And here's another test, probably the last one, as I think I've got all the pieces to work on the final look.

If you want to go for a simple frame, I would suggest a maroon/purplish color - like the vest of the Prince in your avatar, perhaps.  I think that would fit well with the gold and blue colors. What do you think?

For @Jacques, and anyone else who might be confused

 

my colored frame example is just that - just an example, to show the color that I was speaking of. I'm not suggesting he actually make it that way. He's free to make it however he likes.

How do you do that with a strip of 8 pixels?  I don't mean technical details - just fantastic art skills!

9 wide * how tall + motion + our imagination = what we want to see ! :)

nice use of the dress to help define the feet!

I actually meant a real frame made with missiles, it's not fully defined yet... wait and see!

nice 😄 

 

Not sure it works with the serious tone of those texts... but maybe for a loading icon (if I have the memory!)

How about going for the same chroma in the whole screen and only use different luma? That way you'd only need 1 player (or all missiles) for the colouring.

Very thin ice here guys.  You know how women are when it comes to their figure/size.

I think colour-wise it's better (apart from unfilled/contour "m"), because it feels "warmer" and not that arctic ;-)

Not sure if rensoup's latest preview is final colour scheme, but mixing warm colours of 1st letter with cold rest is a bit odd, overall it feels way too cold and reminds just a bit darker Atari Basic colours of background and letters:

...which also reminds XXL's early WIPs, which were missing colouring:

 

 

 

So yeah, brown/gold would be an improvement :)

That's back to square one really, pretty much like the original... I tried it too and I much prefer having a big colorful char. The focus is on the text, so that's where I chose to spend those PMGs... the big char looks almost hires even though it's just regular PMGs overlapping... I'm quite happy with it. 

So that leaves me with 4 missiles but that might just be enough to pull off the look I'm going for...

I guess we'll forever disagree on colors...  not sure they're final anyway.

Maybe she can dance as an outro  having been rescued and all ?

I don't know if you're serious but I've still got the cutscene stuff to do and that's another big job!

Just played a bit with my text routine and the "Aladdin"-font:

It's got a certain appeal... not sure it would work that well with flickering as the lines are slim... reminds me that MrFish suggested that I use dorovar for the ingame text... don't have the space for it but maybe for those text screens...

That looks pretty cool. Irgendwer's proposal was missing a bit on readability, here it's both readable and fitting Persian style well 🙂

On A8 screen, it would look like this:

Ideal would be about midpoint between the two.

The later one has too little bulk in the body and too much tail on things like f and y.

Just for the sake of it a (very rough and quick) mock-up of the scroll-like look.

PMGs (with HPOS changes) could be also used to speckle the paper.
