This animation was done for the "Back to Bits" project. Inspired by the Atari game "Marble Madness". Although shortened to fit the GIF size requirements, this is the full animation that I created.
You can see all the GIFs from Back to Bits here:
Back to Bits, a curated animation project featuring the collective works of more than 40 artists from around the world, showcases a series of animated GIFs inspired by retro NES games. This first round, or “level,” in the Back to Bits series is called NES Nostalgia, and is a tribute to retro 80s and 90s NES games.
Back to Bits was channeled by the nostalgic desire to go 'back to the bit era' when games were measured in bits, NES 8-bit and SNES 16-bit.
The project serves as a lighthearted creative outlet to bring like-minded artists together to share work, celebrate their love for these games and inspire the next generation of gamers.
Back to Bits contributors are professional artists from various creative industries including illustrators, animators, comic book artists, concept artists, directors and designers who share a passion for video games. Artists were asked to reinterpret and create a seamless looping animated short GIF inspired by an NES game of their choice.
Subsequent levels in this series are in development stages and are planned for future release.
