Why do these gifs always make me feel nostalgic?


dandaman1983 t1_j0x9lj2 wrote

Me it's the old Ms DOS games when I was a kid.

After Dark screen savers


SomnambulisticTaco t1_j0xv8km wrote

After Dark was so legit.

They had had all the ads on modules too. Star Trek, Simpsons, MAD, etc

Flying Toasters is a legend, and remember Lunatic Fringe? That screensaver was a FULL GAME. You can actually find a decent port of it out there called Fringe Player.

Oh and on screensavers, not AD but remember Organic Art? Hypnotic gold.


Eschotaeus t1_j10pubm wrote

Lunatic fucking Fringe, hell yes.

The shredder was such a badass

Weird not a lot of people remember parasite eve I heard a song and it brought all the memories playing the game


dylanholmes222 t1_j0x9oiy wrote

I think it’s memories related to old games, but not quite sure.

Metal Gear Solid 1, breaking into the compound


chrislomax83 t1_j0ye1rs wrote

It’s reminds me of the old Blade Runner game.

I actually scrolled past it then got an intense urge to revisit it as it sparked an emotion


Phoequinox t1_j0y0co4 wrote

I have a lot of nostalgia for things I couldn't possibly have experienced and I'm not sure why.


The_Cow_God t1_j0yf2eh wrote

that’s art buddy


Phoequinox t1_j0yk5i3 wrote

Happens with more than just art. I have distinct memories of things that never happened. Like being in a dark, Japanese hotel room on a rainy day. I've recalled that at least since I was 12 nearly 25 years ago. I'd never seen anything that would evoke such a memory. Maybe it was a dream I had, but I don't know why I would have been dreaming about Japanese hotels as a kid. Brains are weird.


TayG0 t1_j0xzqsw wrote

Same. I get the same feeling from the work of /u/aleha_84. Has a very similar vibe.


jiggygoodshoe t1_j0yv7f7 wrote

Same here, reminds me of an easier time when I could just play any number of pixel based games with nothing else to think about.

It'd feel more nostalgic with old sodium lamps. Especially if the flickering one had that purple tinge.

Yeah it's just sitting there and I don't see anyone figuring out the problem.

Would you prefer Deutsch Bahn or České Dráhy? Or are they more or less the same?

I can assure you, you just caught them at a bad moment.

Be sure to come back next week... have the exact same experience again

Sounds like its the MBTA's Commuter Rail. It'll get there... eventually (if it doesn't catch fire in the snow first).


Lordborgman t1_j0ys5ie wrote

Well, it's on it's way to Busan...that's the problem.

If people want it to be, awesome. But it has never meant that.


sydneydanger t1_j0xjo6a wrote

Your work is gorgeous as always but something about this one bothers me… the lighting from the trains headlight feels too smooth, doesn’t match the rest of the image. Still exceptionally well done though, makes me feel something.


Fuck_Microsoft_edge t1_j0xn8jy wrote

Was just thinking this. There's dithering elsewhere in the same image, which makes the light beam look out of place.


no_idea_bout_that t1_j0xxcy5 wrote

Train light should also have a lot of noise/movement from the snow blowing across the beam.


pimp-bangin t1_j0z31x9 wrote

That's part of the problem for sure, tho I think the bigger problem is it's too smooth for this pixel art style


cherb30 t1_j0x26nm wrote

I love it! What program do you use to make pixel art? I didn’t even know this was a thing


vixit_art OP t1_j0x2rok wrote

Aseprite and after effects


Soubi_Doo2 t1_j0yyq82 wrote

Is it from a photo or you created from scratch? It’s really cool!


cherb30 t1_j0x359i wrote

Make any money doing this? Always dabbled with blender but found pixel out personally more appealing

I,wish the snow was falling more slowly but otherwise great job!


webbtraverse21 t1_j0yt0ih wrote

Stab in the dark here, but can someone point me in the direction of beginning to create these pixel art gifs yourself. They've been popping up in my feed often enough the last week or two. They have an enchanting, nostalgic quality to them I dig, this one in particular. Also my young son is really into trains at the moment and is beginning to get into the very basics of computing. This looks like something we can learn together. Thanks in advance!!!


averyminya t1_j103yvg wrote

OP said they used Asperite and After Effects to create this, after effects is likely what makes the pixelated image move. I'm not sure what Asperite is, however I'm guessing it's used to make the pixel image.


forzfedv6 t1_j0wwtz1 wrote

Love these 🔥🔥


johnsplace1234 t1_j0x54u7 wrote

It has an atmosphere about it for sure. There is a cold isolation inside a concrete metropolis of endless cruelty an suffering whilst the blinking light symbolizes life starting an ending within. All this to the track of some 36 chambers in background in the train 🚆


ccoltmanm t1_j0x9eci wrote

Beautiful. Looks like what Chicago will look like in a couple days.

rafael000 t1_j0zgzcs wrote

The animation, probably


averyminya t1_j10429p wrote

Almost certainly, I'd be surprised if it weren't. This is basically the job it's meant to be used for lol

Okay you either play hunt showdown or I just play it way too much and see it everywhere now. Both this and the last train station picture of yours 100% remind of spots in Lawson Station

This looks oddly familiar to my train station, and we had a bunch of train very late because of heavy snowing. Op, aren't you from Slovakia (town Poprad) by chance. Anyway, the work looks amazing, good job op.

Whoknew1992 t1_j0yx4xe wrote

I keep saying. If someone could create games that use this art style we could see some awesome titles. Adventure games with huge worlds that animate everything at 60+ fps. Soundscapes that completely fill out the world around you. These pixelart posts show the clever and creative details that can be used to bring an idea to life. We don't need everything being swallowed up by 4k Raytracing requirements. I know there's more to it than this but it would be fun to see some fun/interesting/unique games made with this.

projektilski t1_j0zxbx2 wrote

I love it but one small critic from me. Snow falling from two different angles constantly. It does not feel natural. Snow is light and it can fall in different directions with slight wind movements but that looks more like dance in the wind, not so scripted. I hope you are not insulted by my comment as I really do like this.


vixit_art OP t1_j103k6t wrote

Yeah it's ok, I intended it as one snow pattern on the bridge that you can see because of the lamps and snow that coming down from the bridge and is illuminated by the train


Forestberry123 t1_j10t3h7 wrote

Why does the train have both the front and rear light activated at the same end?
