User Pinky4341 has created a wonderful resource pack for those who had the pleasure of growing up with early 90s video games, played and/or made RPG games with the likes of RPG Maker for the PC, or simply like retro graphics. Dreav 32x RPG is slightly less pixelated than the original graphics and closely resembles the look and feel from SNES-era titles.
For those who are not quite so familiar with the style, here is a screenshot of Breath of Fire 2 on the SNES:
Before moving on, I should note that this pack is an early WIP and is Pinky’s side project. Nonetheless, the content so far is fantastic and it is definitely worth following. It is not yet released for download, but I will provide instructions for it so that when it is available in the future you may install it with ease.
Here is a sample of some of the blocks that are done, taken from the project page on Planet Minecraft:
Judging from the excellence of Pinky’s realism pack, I expect this one to be nothing short of mindblowing. You can already see some advanced details starting to emerge, such as the randomly forming skulls and other debris. I personally am a huge fan of SNES-era/RPG Maker graphics, so I cannot wait for this pack to progress.
In the mean time, I shall withhold my judgment – there is not yet enough content to award and number of arbitrarily determined items representative of points.
