                   Code** / Graphics / Idea:

At the end of the 1980s, some of the games that you could
get in Poland (there was no official distribution) had no
loading picture or were damaged by Multiface.

This production is a homage to Maciej Stawicki, who created
16 alternative versions of the games' loading pictures
practically within a year.

It is worth mentioning that the speed matched the quality
of the work - his creations not only did not differ from
the originals but most of them surpass the original works.

Back in 1987, with only two existing graphic programs and
without access to a scanner or mouse, creating such artworks
would not be possible without an indisputable talent.
