Retro Demakes

[LAST UPDATED: 5/9/2014 3:21PM EST]

One of my favorite hobbies is taking screenshots from modern games and ‘demaking’ them using Adobe Photoshop to resize the images and apply a palette of colors to them – often very specific ones – so they appear as they might look on an older computer, such as the Commodore Amiga or machines with 256-color support. While I’ve done this before with video, below are some examples of my still work along with links to the source images.
