Dark Souls PC-8801

I wanted to try something in the style of old PC-88 games. It always amazes me how colorful most of the games look despite using that 8 color palette. I took some of my DS linearts, squashed them by 50% and tried to edit them as good as possible. I prepared a bunch of dither patterns, but blending the desired color via an LCD screen is a tiny bit complicated xD Most complicated thing besides working with these colors was creating the missing Kanji, and deciding on a layout for left side windows.  The kana and the rest of the letters were scavenged from various games.
8 colors, 640x200(400)px

EDIT: Now with 100% more appearing text!…

This is a great mock up. Now contact a programmer from "From Software" to make this some DLC. XD

Did a good job replicating PC88 graphics. Well done on that
