seven famous scientists whose significant discoveries and inventions changed the world have been given superpowers based on their contributions to the field. sao paulo-based illustrator diego sanches has created 8-bit pixel caricatures of stephen hawking, charles darwin, albert einstein, isaac newton, nikola tesla, marie curie and pythagoras as part of the ‘science combat’ series for brazilian publication superinteressante magazine. the playable figures each have ‘basic’ and ‘special’ attacks, with the latter linking to his or her discovery in the field of chemistry, medicine, mathematics or physics. for example, hawking’s wormhole theory becomes a superpower that allows him to swiftly surprise an opponent by funneling through a space-time shortcut; newton’s discovery of gravity helps him by dropping an apple onto an enemy’s head; and tesla’s coil attack sends an electrifying high-frequency current in his aggressor’s direction.

  • Who is going to make this I wanna thank him/her

  • Charlie Darwin should have not been included. Evolution is not science. It is a religion he created. True to what he believed he married his own cousin and ended up with children all having birth defects.

  • Generally i dislike when people misuse the 8bit term.

    But in this case, these *are* 8bit sprites. GIFs can only display 256 colors, so the images are using 8bit per pixel.

    Bad Sector
  • Awesome idea, looks great. Reactions: “These are not 8-bit!!” freakin normies

    NEX
  • ‘8-bit design style’ is the style of sprites used in 8-bit games, nobody is really saying that the gifs themselves are 8-bit, that’s meaningless.

    None the less, this is not the style of 8-bit games, but rather 16-bit. 8-bit console didn’t support this resolution and color pallette..

    Some who also knows what #-bit is
  • Hello, I was wondering if you could tell me who the author of this is? I would love to turn this into a game.

    Jose Fernandez
  • lol no one cares if they’re 8bit or not

    srcs
  • They clearly meant ‘8 bits per channel’, lol.

    Merp
  • No way these are 8-bit images.

    Tuomas
  • these are not 8-bit, not everything made in sprites is ‘8-bit’ thanks

    someone who knows what #-bit is
