This was the first computer game I ever played....the original that is.

It wasn't until less than 24 hours remaining in this contest did I find out about it. While researching Digger, I also learned about the HD remake. Looks pretty fun!

This was a very rushed and last minute project, I did as much as I could in 24 hours. I took some design cues from the new version as well as some actual heavy equipment.

Here is our hero, Digger, blasting through uncharted mine territory, snatching up those tasty coins and gems, always one step ahead of those little creatures who are bent on putting a stop to it all.

    Really impressive for a 24hours work! Nicely done!

    I love this piece! It made my day looking at screenshots of the original game and seeing how that huge eye actually is a completely reasonable interpretation of the original game sprite! I laughed at the tiny coins just sitting in the mud, too—also completely accurate to the source! Man, you have some mad skill to whip that up in just a day! The lighting and composition is great too. One improvement I’d really like to see is if this could be made into an actual video game so I can play it.
