The latest art project on Game-Art-HQ...as soon as that wonderful website is back online... (hopefully next tuesday)

.Link's Friendlist is an art collaboration where 30 Legend of Zelda Protagonists and Allies of Link were illustrated by over 50 artists

Upcoming Art Collaborations on Game-Art-HQ are the 5th Round of Link's Blacklist on the 15th June and two 20th Anniversary Tributes for the Tekken series and the first Playstation console. Both projects will be published in the first December week of 2014.


About me:


Reinhold Hoffmann is my name..i am German am born in 1980. Played thousands of video games, especially Fighting Games.

I like to write about video games and their characters and organize bit art colalborations and tributes and sometimes contests with artists which are also gamers.

These art tributes and my own website Game-Art-HQ are meant to tell viewers a lot about the games, it makes me happy that websites like dtoid, eurogamer, kotaku, eventhubs etc are writing about them.


Some of my favourite game series are Tekken, Mortal Kombat and more or less everything from SNK. I care a lot about character designs, storytelling and the music in video games.

In March 2014 I started working to add a video game character database to Game-Art-HQ.

It is still small but it is possible now (May 2014) to see when and where around 150 different game characters made their debut and some other details from them as well. About 10-20 more characters are added per week including articles about them with official illustrations as well as fana rt and cosplays.
You can find this growing database here

I bet a lot of you know Mobygames.com the "Authoritative Video Games Database"



If not..it is a website really worthy to know and bookmark.

That website was created by three friends ages ago, and has become the by far biggest database about video games in the whole internet..leaving even the Wikipedia behind by far.

You can find all sorts of informations there about old and new games, ranging from technical aspects to original advertising texts, reviews by members of their community, screenshots infos about the story and contents oif a game and so forth.

The website was struggling and maybe still is though. It was bought by Gamefly years ago, but they didnt do anything beside adding their logo to the site and made it difficult for members to get their additions onto the site. And to make it worse, they tried to redesign Mobygames earlier in 2013 with a really bad design.

Not that the original Mobygames design is eyecandy. It looks like it was done in 1998 and thats probably the case. And not a bad thing in my opinion.

The Website was now bought by three enthusiastic sounding guys, with one of them being the investor and the other two being webdesigners like myself.

They reverted Mobygames look back to the old design which brought back many long term members there already, but are also actively communicating with the community now and a ton of new articles and infos were added in just the last 8 weeks.

Seems it is going forward to the website and as one of the guys who cares about video game informations and VG history i am totally looking forward to see progress there and be a more active member there as well. Seems i can help the new guys there a bit with SEO stuff at least.

I am not affiliated with MG in any form, just wanted to get the good news a bit into the small spotlight which is a dtoid community blog.

A few websites like gamasutra and polygon wrote articles about this btw @ dtoid crew.
