Unearthed Update: October 2nd (Sprite Conversion)

Sorry for the late update this week! Right now I’m busy implementing sprites for Unearthed, which is a rather lengthy process involving Photoshop, JHack, and whiskey. It’s not that exciting, but it does let me reflect on all the wonderful sprite work that was done for the game.

During the conversion, I managed to find some Glensborough villagers sprites that had not yet been posted on the blog! They’re mostly townies and farmers used as NPCs in the very early parts of Unearthed. I ended up making a bunch of these to help differentiate Unearthed from EarthBound right from the start of the game.




I’ll probably have some more sprite scraps for next week. I’ll be re-posting some of my favourite old content on my Twitter too, so check it out!
