There are many reasons why I chose pixel art. Personally I really like pixel art. I love how it gives us room for imagination, I love the simplicity, I love how the subtle animations can give life to a character.
There is just no other way to let me declare my love for pixel art, except to make a whole bunch of games in this style! I know there are many other art styles that I can use to make the game stand out more, but I would really like to make a pixel art game for now.
Oh yes, the logo! I added some Japanese text, so that it feels like the Japanese logo of Contra. Just for old times sake. Ermm, does it make sense? What does it mean? I have no idea, just thought it looked cool with some Japanese looking text. And those text serves a secret purpose for you to find out.
