Watch how this was made here...

This is a remastered screenshot from the video game Faxanadu a game made for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987. It is about a battle between Elves and Dwarves caused by an evil being that came to the land via a meteor. The entire game takes place inside a gigantic tree. This image depicts the root system of the tree which is dying from lack of water.

There are about 6 people in the entire world that remember this game. But it was one of my favorites. The game has a lot of room for enhancement, but the style overall I always thought was excellent in the original. The music was also one of the best for the NES. (If you're reading this and are musically inclined, please make remixes of this game!)

This scene is modified from the original game and displayed in widescreen instead of 4x3.

This image took a very long time to create (close to 50 hours).

Ive just beaten this game. Nice fan art! The real graphics were 'a little' more pixelated :D

There are far more than six that have fond memories of this game.  And your doctored hd remake wet my appetite.  Every year I catch myself looking for some hd remake I can play.  No fair, but superb work.

Faxanadu is one of those over looked games that is by far one of the best for the nes! I really wish they would do a remake for it using these graphics!
