This was the website of a game development group that I used to be active in. It was mostly written from scratch in PHP, without a content management system. The news content was pulled from the forum software, while the rest was stored in the database. I recreated the in-game interface from the old game we were trying to revive down to a various small details, such as menu item glow/fade effects and an animated site title that replicated the glitchy holographic flashes of the original frame by frame.
