8-Bit Art with Color Cycling

Some of these make me want to move a little LucasArts dude right through them so I can keep adventuring.

Go to the options and crank the time on the Mountain storm one to 4x or whatever. Reminds me of Legend of Kyrandia, or Might and Magic 3. Tongue

that was pretty cool.  I kept on expecting to see a mini Guybrush running around in the harbor town by night one.

That's 8-bit? Looks more like 16-bit. Like something that would have appeared on the Amiga. Also Mountain Stream looks like something from Skyrim biggrin

You can see the 8-bit 256 color pallete if you open the Options menu.

colors are 8bit, the resolution is higher than 8 bit systems though.  That might be why you thought that.

Yeah, that and the fact that it's a good use of the palette, I'm guessing, so a combination of those two factors.
