Inspired by this series of images by Austin Light: create a scene or mock-up representing an already existing video game title with one letter (or number) missing. You can also modify punctuation and spacing (the letter order needs to stay the same though).

Make sure you mention what the original game title is.

Examples:


Canvas Size - Max 320 (width) x 200 (height).
Colours - Max 16.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.



The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
