13,000 NES Sprites in One Wallpaper
(click for crazy enormous size)
Wow, this marks the first time in site history that an image file was so big, I couldn’t even upload it to the site, even after compressing “for the web.” In any case, if you click on the garbled mess above, you’ll see that it’s one of the most impressive collages ever assembled.
It’s 13,000 sprites from NES games all in one place, making the image a “Where’s Waldo” slash migraine giver as you try to hunt down ones you recognize. I wasn’t even aware there were 13,000 total characters across NES games.
Who’s the most obscure person you can recognize and spot? Feel free to try and describe where they are. I think a bigger challenge would be for two people to find the same sprite.
I see Gato, a couple of Cronos, Marle… those are SNES, not NES.. and a whole lot of others I don’t identify definitely look as SNES to me…
Funny how I’ve been playing Chrono Trigger lately (for the first time ever) and those sprites seem to be the only ones I recognize…
Its funny, Crono was the first thing my eyes beelined towards, and I have never even played that game!
I know someone pointed this out already, but I’m really disappointed that someone calls all of these SNES sprites NES sprites. Vast difference in details and number of available colors.
I see a lot of FF6 and Earthbound sprites which are also SNES. The ones I don’t recognize look 16-bit to me, too.
This impressive, but there are tons from the same game and slightly different versions of the same sprite, like some Chrono Trigger enemies, objects and the protagonists
This is a Squaresoft SNES-era sprite compilation.
i really only see Final Fantasy 2, 3, 6. Chrono. and some secret of mana… i guess you can only see what you know.
Where did this come from? I’d love a print.
If you look in the right spots you can see that the image has a background to it, it’s the magiteck factory from ff3 or ff6 (depending on when you played it).
