All Giz Wants: A Camera App That Makes Everything Look Like Kings Quest
August 17, 2010
I’d love it if someone built an app that makes everything look like 1984. I’m not asking for what hipstamatic does. I want an app that makes everything I shoot to look like a 1984 PC game. Specifically, Kings Quest.
Or Police Quest, or Space Quest. Anything pre-VGA. The original Kings Quest ran at a then revolutionary 16 color mode. It ran at a max of 640 by 200 on the PCJr, or 320 by 200 pixels in the Sierra’s own game engine distributed for all PCs.
That’s it. Explaining what I want is easy! I don’t quite understand why I want such a low fi thing. I guess life seems more simple at low res and color. Who can’t appreciate that?
