Yay, that's badass. I was secretly hoping that someone would come up with a Rick palette
I'm with a little dilemma now. It's known that one of the special traits of Dr. Wily is the ability to create a huge ton of minions to reach his plans, and while doing a fan project I feel I should implement something to represent that. Something that always seems like a cool thought is the idea of making something close to the MvC assists system (can call them in a set amount of times for each match).
I could already sketch some cool ideas to go as Wily's assists, but that would take a quite amount of time to be truly accomplished for spriting reasons. So, my dilemma was between to hold the project until I get a reasonable set of sprites to make a consistent job, or to achieve all this as an update, some time after the first release. But just today this third option popped up:
What if I take the "cheap" route and make Dr. Wily minions going full-nostalgia and show up as their 8-bit counterparts? They could as well be sorta "robotic ilusions" if you think some crazy backstory has to be added. A quick mockup to show how the main candidates for the assists could appear:

So yeah, I'm considering any feedback from you folks regarding the last part of the project. If no one manifests, I will be inclined to take the 8-bit scheme before heading to the Doctah's 1st public release.
