In my the latest episode of my game postmortem I talk about how I created the pixel art for Captain Kaon. It's a cool old-school art style, but it has a few challenges to work with.

Hey Peeps!

I’m back with another episode of my game postmortem and this time I’m talking about the pixel art in Captain Kaon.

Pixel art is a fantastic old-school art style that can make your game look really cool. But it also has a few drawbacks and challenges for you game development. In this episode of my game postmortem I’ll talk you through my experiences making the pixel art in Captain Kaon, where things went right, and where things went wrong.

If you’re interested in making games, I hope my experiences and the advice I pass on in my game post-mortems are of use to you. Otherwise I at least hope the story of how I made my game is entertaining.
