“Vagrant Fury” by VectorGoat Games is a 3D arcade shooter that brings you into a nostalgic 80’s and 90’s action flick vibe, with tons of gunfire, explosions, over the top villains and pop culture references.
In 2018 I had the pleasure to collaborate with this project by sculpting in voxelart the characters, buildings and some other elements that would later integrate the game. It was an interesting and fun process to try to integrate the game’s unique conceptart designs into 3D shapes that would still be decently apt to be animated later.
For some time now I’ve been doing a few pixelart animations for Wings of Justice, an indie Fantasy Role-playing Game being developed by Mighty Mufflon Games.
It’s been a hell of a ride, jumping out of the comfort zone, mostly animating at a higher resolution than I am usually used to, for the combat sprites, and then adapting it to lower resolution versions for the general game view.
I confess that while working on the sprites my love/hate relationship with animation can sometimes become a pain… however, once it is done, there is a peculiar feeling of satisfaction to see a drawing come to life.
Below are a few of the animations done for this project.
“One More Pass” bySuperSike Games is a mix between a football game and an endless runner, where you can costumize your team, acquire special players with unique abilities and do your best to just keep passing the ball and scoring goals while avoiding the adversaries through an ever changing landscape.

Alpixel Games‘s Missing Translation is a puzzle game where the main character finds himself stuck in a strange village populated by weird inhabitants. The only way to return home is to solve all of the puzzle challenges that are scattered throughout the buildings. Meanwhile, the player can try to learn the game’s language and communicate with the villagers by drawing specific symbols.

The rules are simple: choose the Ded Moroz (a Slavic figure similar to Santa Claus) corresponding to the Opel Adam car you wish to drive (Slam, Glam or Rocks). Then, race through the track gathering the items with the same color of your Opel Adam to gain more speed, while avoiding the other items that will slow you down. Try to get to the finish line before the time runs out. Have fun!
Below are some samples of the various game elements.
