RetroLingo - A Duolingo Theme
Wasted 20 minutes on lunch break, but it would be so worth it if Duolingo made something like this.. just saying..
It should be more orangey, because that is resting to the eyes, unlike blue. Use that for night, and a high-contrast mode for day. I am 12, so I don't have any eye problems (yet)
12 and already learning languages? keep at it bud, I wish I started earlier, started 15 which isn't too much older, but that's still 3 years of experience lost
I like it. How about one of those very classic backgrounds with the green tinted screen, sort of 8-bit pixels and black curved corners on the sides of the screen, so it looks like a sort of classic game? Actually, how about ZX spectrum Duolingo graphics? Teletext graphics? The graphics from 2011? It would be something to spend lingots on, at least.
Love the idea, especially the 8-bit concept! Especially if they did it right and the icons are scaled down to low-fi and there is a little graininess to the whole site.
That is brilliant. (clapping noises) Can you imagine Duo in an even more pixelated form, with the minimum pixels possible whilst still being distinguishable?
Also, there could be the option of, perhaps, wooden texture, steel, rainbow, world map... Has anyone else got some more?
It's not a theme. Currently Duolingo does not offer themes, but it's a cool idea in the future as something they could offer as a reward for lingots. :)
