I am the head of an amateur game design team mostly consisting of high school and college students. We are currently designing an RPG in the style of Final Fantasy III, but with completely original graphics, music, etc. We are using VERGE2.0 (http://www.verge-rpg.com/). Our game world has been in development for the past four years and is currently featured in an online textbased multiplayer RPG. Please visit our website here: http://members.home.com/larswood/verge/
We're well into development and are currently working on a demo, but our tile artist just dropped out and we're left in a lurch.
If you are interested in designing 16x16 pixel tiles for a tilebased multi-generic (there will be sci-fi, fantasy and numerous other type areas) RPG using a specific 256 color palette, PLEASE contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Below is a screenshot and some artwork.
