8-bit Rebellion

Recommended Posts

Nobody plays this game anymore, but I thought I'd point some stuff out about the game ask ask if there's anything else hidden in the game.

 

In this image you see the whole band talking to one player in City Center asking to join the Rebellion. I don't think that happens in the actual game. Plus while this is going on, there a player in the background getting killed by an enemy that looks like an edited cafe worker. Background players don't do anything but stand around in the final, and I've never seen that enemy in the final.

In this image you see other players in the same walking path as the playing player, maybe they had to be walked up to to interact with at one time? And the HUD looks like it has a level up meter.

When taking the application apart on the computer, you find the tracks used in the game, and most have a cover art of Brad in a different outfit (shown in a LPTV video once). Another LPTV video featured a Hybrid Theory styled Linkin Park, also. Below is the cover art and a replica of Mike's HT era sprite based on the LPTV. In the second video Mike also says that they'd keep updating the game for more missions, and there hasn't been one update yet (besides bug fixes).

[i can't find the first video, I think it was LPU only]

 

Here is just an image of Mike holding an iPhone with 8BR with an older map.

Lastly, a few Linkin Park 8-bit ringtones have songs that weren't on the game, do you think some songs were cut?

If most the graphics on the game weren't blacked out on the computer, I could probably find more info, but sadly, they are.

They really need to do any type of update to get people remembering about it again, everyone has completely forgot about it.. and need to make it so you don't have to download 250mb to fix a bug. kinda stupid.

They should put it on other platforms

They can't even manage it on iPhone, that being a pretty huge platform and still growing, so why would you want them to put it on other platforms?

I'm still waiting for that one person that's against everything everyone else says like saying "LP is doing good with the game, they don't have time to update it!"

IMO they are a band and should stick to it, doing stuff like this in the little extra time they have, it was always going to a a half ass easy short game with basically no updates.

When i think back on it.. it was kinda boring. I wish it was better.. there just wasn't enough to do.

Maybe you will get to travel into space and save the world from A Thousand Suns. LOL

This is quite a huge bump, but recently I've found out how to view the game's image files for everything, and since the game recently had some updates (that took 2 years), I took a look at it and found some leftover stuff

Both have the label "Whitney-from-MFR", the second being the one used and contains "v2". The design changed a lot, unlike the other images left behind that have "v2". The newer one is basicly just a recolor of Jess, or the other way around

I didn't notice this one at first then it really stood out, it's not in the style of either the "8-bit" or HD characters, it seems to be a hybrid of each type. It's name is "Foxy_Lady"

Mega bump, but I've never really seen this pointed out before. I was trying to make Discord emoji of the 8-bit heads not too long ago, was using the sprites from the game as a base. I always knew the sprites in game were weirdly resized and kinda stretched, but it wasn't until I was trying to touch them up and cross checking some stuff I had posted in here years ago that I notice how botched the band's art is in promo art (less so) and the game (terribly) compared to Mike's original art in the videos

 

This is an attempt at a 1:1 remake of Rob from the blurry shot in one of the videos, followed by promo art, and finally how it looks in game:

After a lot of trial and error, several Google searches, scanning Mike's blog on the Internet Archive, layering rotated and skewed images over one another, and pixel changes one by one, I believe I've completely recreated all of the original art shown in the video as close as possible. The most questionable parts are Rob's hair (what should be brown or black), Joe's shorts (same issue), and Dave's hat and shirt (the video is really unfocused on him). Dave also doesn't have the same color shirt in the promo art and game art.

Next I want to tackle the Hybrid Theory art, which will probably be both easier and harder. I'll have these as a base considering one set is based on the other, but I also have less references for accuracy, and Dave looks incomplete
