Feature time #9

Feature time #9

Whew, it's been a year! The tricky part about choosing favorites from such a long period is that some artists just create soooo maaaany gooood wooorks. Alas, to feature as many different artists, one per person had to be selected, purely based on my subjective taste (which skews heavily towards big environments). Meanwhile in my life, I've been working on the graphics engine for Pixel Art Academy, which consumed exactly the year of my life when I haven't posted a journal here.

Happy 2018! I'm gonna be selecting my favorites of 2017, so I have to first pick my favorites since last feature time (August). As usual, this post also serves as a little update of what's been up with Retronator in the mean time. A lot has been happening on my Patreon development blog, especially since I've finally released the first episode of Pixel Art Academy. Well, almost, it's Episode 0, not Episode 1. It's the intro into the game world. Anyway, you can play the intro here (I'm in the middle of upgrading my servers so the about/press/smallprint links are bugged, yikes!). You already know all about my evolving YouTube channel since th
