Picture Wars
« on: March 26, 2017, 06:16:54 AM »
Hi everybody! I welcome You to picture wars a.k.a. pixel wars a game in which everything is customizable to a single pixel.
I'm looking for somebody who would like to play a match.

Rules:
The idea itself is pretty simple. You have an army of sprites and a map, on your turn you move your guys and do actions with them. For better explanation you should checkout the "how to match tutorial" on the picture wars forum. The link is here Just noticed that the pictures in the tutorial are down. Sorry.

Army:
What's an army?
An army is a collection of sprites that fight together.
How do I get an army?
Well, there are two ways, one is to create an army by yourself, the "a guide to armies tutorial" will help, the link is here. Another way is to use an already created army you can find some armies on the forum, but probably everyone here is gonna stick to creating their own army. We use 25px as an average size of a human for sprites.

Here you can find example matches.

If you want to know more about picture wars check this out:
Link: CLICK ME!!!, It's a promo on Bay12 forums that we were doing, because the picture wars forum is dying, but now I just use it for people to get to know how to play picture wars.

Anybody want to match?

That looks both really cool and just horribly, horribly labour intensive.
Sometimes I think I'd have an easier time surviving Cataclysm IRL than in game.

Nah, it's not that bad. Especially cause creating armies is really cool.

Try and ask around for help, most of us had to go through the process of learning as well. I will post a link to a discord server where PW veterans hang out soon, so that you can ask them for help in spriting.
