Wait, what's Fraymakers?


Fraymakers is the fully modular, full-featured indie platform fighter announced today from McLeodGaming, the studio behind the Super Smash Flash fangames. Fraymakers features a playable cast from indie gaming classics, in addition to a massive selection of guest assists from a broad selection of other sources (The NG Tankman is one of them!). The game is also being released alongside a companion software called FrayTools, a custom Flash-like application used by the dev team to create the game's content. With FrayTools you'll be able to expand the game with your own characters, assists, stages, modes and more with ease!

Other Rules:

  • Only one entry per person
  • No NSFW please!
  • No additional entries will be accepted after the deadline
  • Entries in the Pixel Art category must be digital and not feature mixed mediums*


* Note that Non-Pixel submissions can be just about any medium - digital painting, fine art, pencil drawing, you name it - as long as it features at least one of the characters from the playable or assist roster of Fraymakers it's fair game! Just note that to qualify for the Pixel Art category, the artwork must be digital and fully pixelated. That means no mixing mediums together (e.g. pixel art character on top of a painted background). 


What are the prizes?


The Fraymakers team will act as judges of each submission, and the winners will be awarded as follows: (Prizes sponsored by McLeodGaming)


  • Best Pixel Art - $100 and 1 digital copy of Fraymakers
  • Best Non-Pixel - $100 and 1 digital copy of Fraymakers
  • Top 3 Pixel Art Runner-ups - 1 digital copy of Fraymakers each
  • Top 3  Non-Pixel Art Runner-ups - 1 digital copy of Fraymakers each

So is this like MUGEN but actually balanced? Also, the potential for this to become a meme fighting game is enormous.

Count me in!

While I can't speak for the balance aspect of MUGEN, it's certainly a close comparison!

By the way folks, it's been asked if placing a pixel portrait on a stylized backdrop for clarity would still qualify for the Pixel Art category. The answer is YES, as long as the background doesn't contribute significantly to the foreground it will still qualify as Pixel Art (we would judge based on the foreground in this case). The rule against mixed mediums is primarily to avoid the simple act of adding pixel art to your entry from automatically qualifying it as pixel art to be fair to those explicitly entering that category.

As long as it can be submitted to the art portal it will be accepted!
