Retrofuture Iconography

So, somewhat inspired by this, I borrowed a level map from here and this picture (and the sun sprite from here) to make this picture.

My home desktop is two adjacent 1680×1050 screens, if you’re wondering about the dimensions.

Incidentally, Super Mario Brothers (the low-fidelity video-game bit at the bottom, there) was released in North America about eighteen months after Bruce McCandless, the fellow in the space suit, went on the MMU-assisted spacewalk photographed there.

    What are the monitors and the physical dimensions?

    One 15.4″ widescreen laptop, and one of these 22″ Acers.
