I'm making a pixel styled multiplayer party game but I'm not sure about the pixel art and I'm afraid it might narrow down the market of buyers. So I tried another style to see what it would be like.

So please tell me which of these styles you would like the game to be in if you could choose :) Thank you in advance!

Both look good, I prefer the pixel version.

@Beaverlicious Great, thank you for your input. It might be that I'm just tired of making pixel assets for the game and want a change :P

And for you others. If you want to see the pixel art gameplay you can watch the trailer in my signature. And tell me what you think would be the best style :)

Pixel art is fine so long as you get the aspect ratio the same for all assets.

That's true. I create the pixel assets in their actual size in the game to keep it consistant :)

I would go with the one on the left, it looks more stylized. Both are great though. Maybe have an option to unlock one of the styles?

@Billy Bleeks I actually thought about making it possible to select the style you want like in the new monkey island where you can play it as the old one or with the redrawn graphics by pressing the select button. But I think that is a little too much for me to do both styles :P So maybe I'll stick with pixels for this one and use the other style on my next game.

But I'm not sure yet...

Well, the real deciding factor would be the environment/level graphics. The first character would need a similar style of level graphics to match. When we see how the characters would look in-game, it will make a difference. You've shown the pixel art character in-game, but are you going to do new level graphics for the vector character?

@DarthCrusher Could almost have guessed that based on your avatar ;)

@DrewMelton Off course. I would do everything in the same style. Would look really bad if the environment would still be in pixel art. But I'll stick with the pixel art after some serious thinking. Too much work to change it and the name of the game is 8Bit Fiesta. So I realized that it is a little late to change that as well when I have a trailer, website and a kickstarter :P hehe
