A proud member of "generation 8-bit".

Rebuilding the icons reminded me of how impressive these game developers were to create such elaborate stories, characters, and environments with such limited technology. I hope you can enjoy identifying them all too. There's a few subtle 'alignment cominations' planted within the pattern as well (such as the title).

4c over black/charcoal OR 1c as Sepia

I think patterns can't print in multiple colors, but I love the sepia version!!!! So kyewl!

how'd this get approved? there's not really parody here, it's pretty much straight up representations.

Thanks you guys.

@Martian, if you look a little deeper there's actually subtle relationships within the pattern itself. Not sure if this fits the parody you're seeking, but there's a little more to it than what you see on the surface.

it's just the characters themselves. Pacman and Space invaders are copywritten characters, and naamco is known for having Threadless remove pacman designs, that's the only thing I'm thinking. I like the pattern, but I bet legal issues become more than what Threadless is willing to undertake

Makes sense. I actually recreated each of these pixel by pixel rather than copying though, so each icon is unique and not replications. ... for example, Pacman's mouth to head ratio here has got to be different than the original. And I really don't think you can copyright that simple shape... otherwise pie charts would be outlawed! haha
