Anyone young enough (or old enough) to have grown up playing Atari or NES games might appreciate this. I was doing some pixel graphics for a project at work, and started thinking about the sword in Legend of Zelda, and what other types of swords would look like in that style. Or maybe I just had too much time on my hands.
