This 8-bit art creator has been a slooow work in progress. I’ve had the bittersweet fortune of being busy as all hell this past year, and I haven’t touched it for several weeks. By posting about it here, though, perhaps I’ll be more motivated to redesign and add all the features on my 8-bit laundry list.
The title of the page came from a comment I read somewhere accusing 8-bit of being trendy. Which is like calling techno trendy, in my opinion. The grid is made of div squares using a PHP loop generating boxes, with CSS rules changed using jQuery and user controls. That may be completely reworked in the near future, although it may not. Who knows? Not I.
Play around with it in the meantime, though, and send me screenshots if you make something cool - like my pal Chimp’s Fonz and Starry Night, created during the early stages of this thing’s creation.
