We recently put together a birthday card that drew upon our love for old school video games. Figuring out exactly how to present it went through several phases. In our first incarnation, Jeff pitched an awesome animatic where the gag was a little more twisted than the final product.
The next step was taking our Starring you technology and applying it to the game. It looked odd to split a head into three quarters with a triangle wedge. Similarly, just having the precut jaw open and close proved not big enough or centered enough to swallow a big pixel.
Kevin took to designing different kinds of power ups and enemies for our 8-bit head to eat and chase.
Once it all came together, we had a simultaneously retro and cutting edge birthday card on our hands! Check it out here!
