Narbonic Sprite Theatre

As doofy as this little playlet is, I really did want to do more installments with Liz’s adorable sprite figures. For better or worse, I never got around to it. The backgrounds are ganked from “Maniac Mansion,” my all-time favorite video game and frequent Narbonic referent.

Man, it’s been way too long since I posted extra Sunday bonus stuff. How about this excellent sketch of Dana by Rhiannon McCullough? That’s the ticket!

Thanks, Rhiannon!

  1. Those sprites are really quite nice. Their vibrant colour schemes and non-standard poses make me think of Pok?mon Diamond. If I had been doing this, I’d have probably wimped out and made them all 16×32 pixels with 4 colours.

  2. Since the Big Freakin’ ™ Gun was recycled from another strip, I’m not incrementing the official count.

    Went to my granddaughter’s birthday party yesterday at the Kids’ Museum.  The two-year-old seemed most fascinated by the diagram of the body’s internal organs … she was taking them all out and trying to put them back in different arrangements.  Future Mad Scientist in the making!

  3. I didn’t notice Artie in that Maniac Mansion comic. I did, however, notice that Mel is standing suspisciously close to the microwave. Should I be worried?

  4. Cute! I am now longing to go away and make lots of pixelly Narbonic LiveJournal icons (but I won’t). I like the subtle Dave head-swivel. Spooky.

    I’ve missed Helen’s big hair since she’s been a man.

  5. Okay, that’s just sad – I recognized the backgrounds from Maniac Mansion.

    Helen would get along just fine with the Tentacle, wouldn’t she? 

    The Auld Grump 

  6. Disturbingly, I had the same thought, That Guy.

    I also hope that Mell isn’t carrying any gasoline…
