Official, default palette (new)

New! January 2018 update: Grays are less brownish, purple is darker.

Why is it important to use the default palette?

  • We spent lot of time fine tuning this palette to get the perfect blend of colors.
  • You can't really go wrong with these colors.
  • This will give the Gamebuino games a consistent look.
  • They are not garish nor not dull and all different.
  • This is a pretty versatile palette, you should be able to do any kind of games with it.
  • They are the default colors used in indexed mode.

The new palette looks good! But the update at top should say January 2018, right?

Looks good to me! Pretty complete and very versatile. 

The only that I'm not sure of is whether the magenta and the red are too close too each other. Maybe purple and magenta could be a tiny bit brighter so magenta can be used as well as a lighter shade of red  but does not move too far from purple?

@exocet I tried brightening the magenta to make it pinkish, but it doesn't really help in my opinion.

There will always some compromises to be made... that's what's fun I guess :)

I created a palette a few months ago that was based on the old Gamebuino palette. The overall shades are almost the same but the colors are less vibrant and hard on the eyes. The blue shades have a more pronounced hue shift. Instead of having shades of magenta/pink, it has a purple color. The name is "Vintage Gamebuino Palette"

Note: The color change is MUCH more noticeable when you're looking at them when downloaded instead of the browser or with a better display.
