8-Bit Dr. Horrible Act 1

Author Comments

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.


Seriously, this should have been a game

There's not much to say really. Its 8-bit graphics with music from the movie. You did a pretty good job of recreating the opening act, but this REALLY should have been a game. The way its made, it feels like one big cut-scene instead of a movie.


This is the best thing I have ever seen, ever. I may be exaggerating just a little bit.
