(Not a game but retrogamming related. Might be interesting specially for those wanting to create game art)

Retro Image Converter turns any image into a vintage computer art - Monochrome Green monitor, 4 color CGA or popular retro machines.The process is automated, you only need to select a retro palette and wait for the conversion to finish. You can save or share the images with friends.Details:- All images are center cropped to a 4:3 aspect ratio, the same as old school graphics.- Images are rendered and saved at low resolutions (ex: 256 x 192 ). They are scaled up for sharing. This is because most messaging apps will compress the images, destroying the pixelated look.- Conversion is done by color matching. Each pixel is mapped to the closest palette color possible.- Dither patterns are calculated, so that a two color palette (ex: black and white) can simulate an intermediate tone. The same goes for larger number of colors, where intermediate tones are simulated.- Due to the precise calculations involved, conversions are slow. This ensures good color matching, even with when using very limited palettes.- The app doesn't simulate the restrictions of specific graphic modes (ex: color limitations within an ‘attribute’ pixel block).
