Insert coins here for a nostalgia overload. We crafted our own 16-bit basketball video game for TacoBell and the NBA. Design and motion exploration for socials.
Video games in the 90’s were an intoxicating glimpse into the future. Now, they capture a different emotion, nostalgia, that bittersweet feeling for times past. From an artistic perspective, we think these games really stand the test of time! The rich worlds that game designers built with so few pixels and colors seemed to have such confidence and attitude. The task was to capture some of this energy and embrace the charm/jank associated with 16-bit gaming.
Our main inspiration was NBA Jam. Its legacy endures, and it's a legendary game for many reasons. Back in 1993, the game made 1 billion dollars in its first year, through quarters in arcades alone.
