Awesome news: Mark Ferrari revamps his web site 12 Jan, 2019 / 6 comments

Mark Ferrari, one of the most important LucasArts artists during the early SCUMM era, has relaunched his web site, and you have reason to be exited - I particularly want to draw your attention to the Image Archives section, where Mark is hosting rare samples from his older work. JP has already been fomenting an irresponsible tizzy on Twitter (but not here, for some reason ¬) by suggesting that some of the screens may belong to an unreleased Star Wars adventure game.

So check out Mark's new site, which he promises is merely a work-in-progress. And unlike Mojo, it may actually graduate from that status at some point.

    By the way, the awesome palette cycling images by Mark Ferrari are only stored as JPEGs on his new site (so, no animation there). They can all be found here though: http://www.effectgames.com/demos/canvascycle/


    Good find! The site also says the "Living Worlds - Art by Mark Ferrari" Android (soon iOS) app is already out. More info @http://pixfabrik.com/livingworlds/



    The app is out now on iOS now, if you want to show them some love.

    Looks like they're releasing one image a month, along with a checklist of things to look out for in each image.

    I'm still looking for a shooting star in January, and waiting for a full moon..

    About THIS web site: visiting page 2 of the news archives ends up in showing *all* news, resulting in a monster long page which kills my mobile and really puts my laptop to the test.
    Please check date intervals and SQL offsets/limits in your PHP.



    That's a problem that was carried over from the old site...I was having difficulty looking at old posts before the site relaunch, and I could never figure out what was wrong

    Well, it certainly *seems* like something I'd lose my shit about on Twitter. Alas, it appears there's more than one Star Wars video game obsessed curmudgeonly JP about.
