Well it’s been almost 3 years since I started working on Moonman, it’s grown in scope far beyond what I originally imagined and the development log now has 174 pages and has been read over 600,000 times. In the rare chance that the TIGsource forums collapse it would be a great shame to lose that thread, which has documented the many iterations of Moonman, from the original ascii/ansi graphics to the colourful pixel art it has today. To preserve it I decided to spend some time today archiving the old thread and centralise all the linked images. So now the archive up until today is here: http://moonman.io/devlog_archive/page_0.html, and I have it backed up on my computer. I archived the devlog by saving the thread in ‘print mode’ and processing it with a custom Python script. Hopefully TIGsource will never die, but if it does the history of Moonman will be somewhat preserved.
Here’s some pixel art I’ve drawn over the last two weeks. I’m now running a twitter account called @Pixel_Dailies where I post daily pixel art challenges and themes. I started the account to motivate myself, but I’ve had many awesome contributions from other people.
