This is act 1 of 3 of my 8-Bit Dr. Horrible project.

All music, sound effects, graphics and animation for "Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Game" were created by me as a tribute to Dr. Horrible (by Joss Whedon) and the NES. You can download the full 8-bit soundtrack from my website (follow the link in my profile and click on the Dr. Horrible banner at the top of the blog posts).

Programs used in the creation of this animation:
Graphics: Adobe Photoshop
Animation: Adobe Flash
Sequencing: FL Studio
Instruments: NES+MidiNES
Mastering: Adobe Soundbooth
Sound Effects: SFXR

Note: This is not an actual game as of now but there are interested parties that I may be working with to create one eventually. Also, I realize there are spelling and continuity errors so please don't bother commenting on those - while not all intentional, I chose to leave them in since a lot classic Nintendo games had similar issues and I thought it added extra authenticity to the project.



Rated 5 / 5 stars


The way you show it in the classic NES game style is brilliant! Seriously good job and it's obvious a lot of care went into it. The 8-bit songs you sequenced are PERFECT too by the way... really impressed!

Epic win, my friend.

This was really amazing.

I've seen Dr. Horrible, and I love you for this. LOVE.

I don't think I'll be hated upon if I say 8-bit-ing makes everything better.

Its good

It is quite well done, but i feel it doesnt show the story enough. I understand you had the limitations of making it in ff format, and in 8-bit graphics, but unless uve actually seen dr horrible, you wouldnt get 75% of whats happeneing. like that billy loves penny. the way you had it, he was just being a creeper. otherwise i quitte enjoyed it. I just siggest putting a bit more talking in it.
