Low-res Aquaria: awesome.

The internet has definitely contracted retro demake fever. Perhaps the mania reached its highest pitch in late August, when TIGSource announced its Bootleg Demakes Competition. You probably already know that the demakes are now available online—in fact, you can download 68 of the 69 playable contest entries in one easy-to-swallow torrent.

One entrant submitted his demake, Aquarium. It is a short (but totally functional) proof-of-concept demonstration of what Aquaria would look like on the NES.

I love the squat, chibi Naija sprite. I will now commence my download of Mega Man 9.
