Re: Box Boy



Some of the levels in this game are:
- Crushing boxes in the cardboard compacter
- Making furniture out of boxes
- Shrink-wrapping your friends
- Pretending to work

I'm sure most people can relate to this from working in a warehouse or stock job. I'm glad I'm back in school so I never have to take one of those jobs again.

Reminds me of all those times I saw Alice chasing an intruder down the street shooting cats out of her palms at him. It's such a mundane thing that occurs, that once I saw this entry, I realized that it's totally something that happens everyday! Kind of like breathing... you forget you do it until you think about it.

Awesome design as always!

It is 8-bit. But it is not "ordinary, mundane things". The Gentry even said that while astronauts may consider shuttle launches and space exploring to be ordinary and mundane, the general population would not and it would be rejected. It's all right there in the rules.

I can see your point, however, 8-bit art and pixelated art are two different things. I could make a super high res eboy like picture and call that pixelated but it's not 8-bit.

I get there is a little bit of leniency in the statement but with the name of the derby being 8-bit, I would assume a picture that clearly isn't 8-bit wouldn't make it into the fog, but that's what I get for assuming right?

All of the other fog designs are 8-bit, his isn't. Here he is though, skirting the rules again to get a quick buck. I think the reason you see a lot of complaining is because Ramyb has so much talent, but instead he chooses to waste it making bunnies, squirrels and turtles.

We all have to make a living so I get it, but, you can choose the path of hard work that makes you the best you can possibly be or you can phone it in everyday and follow the path of least effort.

Re: Press Start



Great work with a square brush, but a square brush does not make this 8-bit. Pretty sloppy on the lettering too... basic 8-bit lettering shouldn't have any odd curves or cut outs from the letters. You are working with squares, everything is uniform and symmetrical. Look at old DOS prompts for more examples.

It's all good, you can call it whatever you want, it's still "Ramyb Cute." I hope that doesn't offend you.

four trees plus the one you're deciding on (which should be a tree) to make five.



Also, the leaves/branches of the trees are a Fibonacci series.

Yay Eddie! I really hope this prints. Plus, there are so many cats and coffee jokes for this derby. Many of them are quite good, of course! But it's nice to see some diversity. It always surprises me how many cat entries win the derbies...Maybe I'm just a dog person.

1) "It sells" is the mantra for business without ethics. If that is a stance you believe in, you are also without ethics.

2) It doesn't matter if only one derby entry is on topic, and that one derby entry is horrible: that should be the winner, and nothing should win saturday and sunday.

3) I am surprised, in a community full of the most tedious webdorks on the planet, nobody bothered to note that Monty Python has released a Grail based video game. Which means this is, by definition, out of bounds: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Python_%26_the_Quest_for_the_Holy_Grail

Re: Press Start



Thank you for the support, everyone!

@nblottie - Glad you liked my other design! I love your current one, and congrats on the print!

@blinddog3d - Thanks for the kind words, sir. I'd be humbled to ruin a perfectly good shirt with my train-wreck signature.

@logicalcupcake - thank you, thank you

@Adam7986 - I appreciate the feedback, and I'm glad you bring up the 8-bit stuff because I tried to look into what sort of resolution to work in. I found 512x512 (which could be totally wrong, I didn't have a whole lot of luck here) and made the image at that resolution and blew it up to printable size by preserving the hard edges with PS. I went into the design thinking the "graphics" were going to be a lot more like mario 3 than 1 (1 being closer to what most people probably associate with the traditional 8-bit feel), so yes, there are some curves in there they didn't really use in first generation 8-bit games.

Here is a good link I glanced over for reference.

I'll shut up now. Good night everyone!

TonyGreyfox wrote:Yep, absolutely the same, if 'absolutely the same' can be defined as 'almost entirely completely different except for they both have a coffee cup in them.' Immediate rejection there.



To me, just being a thief should be an immediate rejection, but woot hasn't ever cared about that.

There is no meaningful difference between this and the other design. The other design in and of itself was a tired take on an unimpressive idea. The first person to brew coffee would have been mocked for his uninspired idea if he'd designed this the next day. It's like when Ramy put a good and evil bunny on a shirt. Good and evil at either side has been done a thousand times, so we all know it got rejec... oh wait, no, it didn't get rejected, even though someone else had just used the same tired trope on a woot tee. If there is any difference here, it is that this doesn't even make sense. Both tees are about coffee as a power up, but ramy seems to think it gives extra lives. It's like saying "it was the best of multiplication, it was the worst of multiplication" to paraphrase Tale of Two Cities. It's the same exact line OMGOMGOMGPONIESOMG PWNIESens wrote, but your faulty synonym search alters the meaning into something meaningless. And really, that's the Ramy way. Take a tired tee trope and add bunnies for some reason. Change a design just slightly by using a joke that makes less sense while being just as unoriginal. If you wore this and the other one after another, people would laugh at you and ask if you only owned one shirt. And that should be enough to call any shirt identical. If this isn't rejected, all that shows is one more instance of woot caring more about money than their contest or their artists, and one more instance of Ramy getting special privileges no one else in the derby gets.
