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.


Simply Mind Blowing

Became a big Dr. Horrible fan a couple months back and just getting to see this in a whole new perspective and in such a fascinating way just blew my mind. Can't wait to see how Act II & III turn out visually and audibly. Great job once again, keep it up!

This was just as good as the movie if not better and being able to pull this off in 8-bit form is outstanding, while still being able to hold my interest all the way though to the end and leaving me wanting more is amazing. This truly is a work of art and it deserves the highest remarks the site can give weather it be #1 of the week, month and front page I hope this gets recognized for the effort. I agree with Heximus everything was perfect down to every detail, the visual the over world play and FUCKING BAD HORSE THEME! was incredible in my eyes I loved this so much, everything was outstanding, the soundtrack in 8-bit was superb that is what grabbed me and I could listen to it for hours I hope to see more from you and the rest of the acts of course and yes a game would really kick ass. I could watch this over and over this was the best thing i've seen in a really really long time. This totally kicked ass, Great F'n great job!

I loved it! All of the fun of an 8-bit gameboy game without all of the pointless button clicking. =)
