Title: Star Trekscii
Post by: aNdy on May 15, 2020
A new Twitter account with daily(ish) updates mixing Star Trek and C64 lowercase ROM PETSCII art!  The artist is my (very) young Grandson, the next generation (pun intended) of Commodore64 scener!  Please follow and support this young PETSCII artist!

Wow, excellent, thanks for posting them here!
 :cheers:

Now you got me dreaming of side views, walk cycles...
Not sure if you’re familiar with the old text based Sierra games, but I can totally picture a little startrek themed Spacequest adventure. Walking around the enterprise, meeting all these fantastic characters!

Thanks for the kind words!

We have been thinking about creating a game using some of the graphics.  It would be a simple combat/strategy game.

As well as the character PETSCII's, every 100 new followers we gain, we pixel something non-character based that could also be used in a game.  We're approaching 400 followers and will have a PETSCII version of the Enterprise D bridge interior  that would fit into such a game quite well.  For 200 followers we did an exterior PETSCII of the Enterprise D which would also fit in a game quite nice, perhaps as a selection screen (go to the bridge, engineering, transporter room, etc.).

Further to the post above, the Twitter account reached 400 followers today so I tweeted a PETSCII of the Enterprise D bridge that could also be used in a C64 game...
