G-Pixel Submission Guidelines
- All submissions must be video game entities, environments, or gameplay mock-ups.
Flash games containing at least 80% pixel art are also accepted.
- Each individual pixel should have been worked over by your hand.
This means no filters, anti-aliased brushes, gradient fills, blend mode overlays, automated colour indexing, Frankenstein pixels, compression artefacts, etc.
- Submissions must not exceed 64 palette colours. Gameplay mock-ups must not exceed 256 palette colours. Submissions approaching these limits will be scrutinised for purity.
- All submissions should be complete. If you need critique, visit the forums at Pixel Joint or Pixelation.
