Contest Brief

I am looking for a skilled UI designer who can create a retro UI for a PC game done completely in 16 color CP437 ASCII characters which is a UI revision for the game tinyHack.
https://xenonghost.itch.io/tinyhack
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_page_437

The game is being developed for the PC platform interfaced via telnet and has a retro circuit board cyber hacker art style.

Key requirements for the project include:

- Creating UI elements that match the retro cyber art style of the game.
- Designing the 1 game level for the game.
- Making sure the map design is optimized for 80x24 characters of screen space
- The score will be displayed in the font of Tmplr

#Score
Total Score can not be more than 6 characters. All 6 characters number slots will show but the unused slots
4 grayed out zeros for a score of 10
Example: 000010

Attached are the other examples of UI and styles. Check out the tinyhack files for a more verbose breakdown

    Path style will be better than dungeon style meaning the movement style is similar to the original game.

    Submissions need the ANSI version to be valid
    https://www.gridsagegames.com/blogs/fileDownload.php?fileName=REXPaint-v1.60-ANSI.zip

    If you made a version in the standard version then there is a way to configure it to export for ansi.

    *The normal REXPaint download is capable of .ans export, but you have to configure it by following some file copying instructions in the manual--only use this pre-configured version if you plan to make .ans art files! Otherwise the normal true color version is what you want.
