Artist João Victor G. Costa took Warcraft and added old-school color graphics. The result is beautiful minimalism.

According to Costa, "I know the black 'emptiness' suck, but it's for the sake of the gameplay, really."

Introduced in 1981, the Color Graphics Adapter was IBM's first graphics card. Decades later, graphics cards have advanced, producing more realistic graphics, but not necessarily more artistic ones.
