I'd say as long as there isn't an actual game with the 3D character then thats ok. Lots of artwork will have been produced in the early days to give the characters the 3D feel without the game doing the same.

Oh btw, if anyone has missed it, last months challenge results are up in Lounges -> Announcements or here for the lazy ones

Are you guys finding the "not made in 3D before" rule too constricting? Because you are putting your own spin on it anyway, so I might be able to forgo that part of the rules as long as your entry isn't too similar to the existing 3D models.

Default or maybee

I`d though maybe golden axe it is not the best character to rebuild.
Any Connan looks character could be a remake of golden axe male character right.
So let me change the question.
Had any 3d version of Strider for mega drive?

I had a quick look at strider when I was choosing.
The last strider game had characters in 2D but the background was 3D. They classed it as 2.5D because they didnt know exactly where to put it.

Personally I'd say that its ok to do strider as the characters themselves were only 2D.

Better wait for a mod response.

I found this one.
I belive no 3d rebuild title was made for this one.
If someone it is interest I think could be nice to remake.
I just couldn`t find reference enough just this cover image.
And from what I remember this game was so dificult that I never could finish it.

Ok, consider the "not in 3D" rule null and void then. Sorry for the inconvience. But please ensure that you are putting your own spin on it! If it's too similar to existing designs, it won't be a winner!

If you like Metroid, try Thexder... it was never 3D.

Would it be ok if I create a model of a ragnarok online caracter?
It's not an old game, but all the caracters are 2d sprites and never were created in 3d.

That's in game screen shot of the character I want to make.

the "never in 3D" thing is no longer a rule.

EVERYONE:

Don't forget, the goal is not to RECREATE something... it's to put your own spin on it!

Man, I love this type of comp. Hopefully I can finish what I'm doing soon and enter! I can think of TONS of games I'd put my own spin on. I'm an old guy so gaming goes all the way back to pong on the Odysee from Magnovox for me
