Throwback Thrusday – Avatars

Many years ago, I wanted to make mobile games. Now I am not a programmer but I had been in the industry for some years. We thought we’d start small and make a tiny avatar maker, since it was something that was part of bigger games at the time. You’d play a PS2 game and make yourself an avatar from different pieces and use that. Since the ability to associate a picture to a phone number was starting to be available on phones, but cameras were not yet in the picture (heh) we wanted people to be able to make composite funny portraits of their friends. Turns out that the selling and porting back then was much more complicated than today, you had to go through phone companies so that project was short lived. But all the tiny tiny art was made and I still think it’s hilarious.
