Below are some of the background screens and character animations for the Dark Sun Series.
Remember, even if you are looking at these pictures on a cell phone,
you are looking at them on a HIGH RESOLUTION screen!
In the 1990's, the pixels on the screens were much larger,
and the characters below would have looked much larger.
Below is a magnified representation of one of the backgrounds from Dark Sun.
You can see the sparse use of color used to create this background screen.
In the screen above, there are six colors and twelve shades.
Below is a magnification of one of the characters in the game. This is a half-giant.
Squint your eyes and you can almost see him!
I have magnified the animation frames of the half-giant above to better see each individual pixel.
The characters were much too small to show strings of a bow.
