8-bit glory

By on January 9, 2018

It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times.

Nah, who am I kidding. It was the best of times and it was the greatest of graphics.

Glorious 8 colors clashing in an amazing 256×192 resolution (i.e. just a notch above Half Quarter VGA).

It was indeed an window into a brave new world, in a time before the uncanny valley.

Apropos valley: Above is an image of the grand Canyon as rendered by the humble Sincalair ZX Spectrum.
