No depth perception? Does this mean she has a glass eye? Because she is supposed to be a Black Scottish cyclops...

Agreed, I played some games like this on the Atari (don't ask which one). And the graphics where three maybe four tones. And no where near as good as this game shows. something for DOS from the early 90's maybe.

It's funny to see people talking about games like this saying they look like old DOS games, or something. It's funny because these are graphics that are 100% modern and could have never existed back in the day.

Personally, thinned out-eyebrows look stranger to me than "thick" ones (i.e. normal ones), though those are more difficult to draw than a simple line, I guess. Thanks for making the effort.

@Nerf NOW!!: Which I whole-heartedly support. Besides, Jane might kick my ass for this, but the thick eyebrows make her look kinda cute.

No, really. Guess it's because they remind me of K-On!'s Mugi and other cute-faced anime/manga girls with thick eyebrows.

@Rukifellth: Could we imply that she has a glass eye?
almost 5 years ago
After losing depth perception, eh? It's funny cause she's demoman who only has one eye.

@Mister Jay: Ironic considering Alek was the winner of the vote, isn't it?

Speaking of Engie, I wonder what she's up to. No successful suicide attempts, I hope.

I can just imagine Alek sitting by a window with Engie outside going "Wow so many comics with Morgan, Jane, and Anne Marie but you sit alone guess you'll be outside yourself soon enough" before maniacally laughing. And going back to her bartending job.

@Raxyz: I'm the same, just that Touhou really clicked for me. Awesome music & nice gameplay style, especially in the early Windows games :D.

@Tk: No, most of them don't pull it off. It's only the really good ones that you've heard of that pull it off nicely.

Those Tsumugi-like eyebrowns on Jane's face are so damn fabolus! Keep it on, mah' dear tentacle man!

Dwarf Fortress takes this to the limit - under the unfriendly interface and non-existent graphics (the game is rendered in extended ASCII) lies a very complex simulation of great fantasy worlds.

I saw this game a while ago and was hoping it would come to this, http://www.onemorelevel.com/game/luftrauser

Also: wouldn't Jane be used to games that are just different shades of brown?

I think Morgan and Jane might both enjoy Nidhogg.

Reminds me of Wings. Except ofc Wings had/got better graphics and content.

I completely agree: gems like Luftrausers are really hard to find, even harder to convince people how awesome a game can be without those fluffy 3D graphics.

This is certainly one of your best ones, Jo!

Luftrausers reminds me of Sopwith on the PC, which was incredible, and also an amazing game I had on my Spectrum 128K +2 called "Dr Destructo". Which is why I want to play Luftrausers so bad.

@MarqFJA87: I'm slowly trying to make all girls as different as possible. Not a fluke.

"mask the lack of resources" is the wrong way to convey it. especially since most of them do it on purpose but pull it off in a manner that is aesthetically pleasing and fun.

So Jane having her eyebrows suddenly thicken between one strip and another wasn't a fluke, huh? I don't know why, but the look is growing on me with each appearance.

This game is great, super fun!

@Nial Iwakura: Maybe. I personally enjoy it, like, REALLY enjoy it.
They lack the broader appeal 3d graphics have now though, so as a style choice is usually inferior since it will leads to less sales unless you are going for a retro vibe.
almost 5 years ago
Retro visuals are quite a trend... And often devs try to use it to mask the lack of resources.
