No palettes, just direct RGB values and direct conversion to analog via a small resistor network. 8 bit RGB is easy, just as is 1 bit. I just hope that 4 bit RGB is somewhat useful. 4 bit RGBI looks usable. It provides the obligatory screaming colors for an 8 bit computer.

That's the real problem here. If you choose too high a resolution or color depth, the poor CPU can't keep up the frame rate. The second bottleneck is pumping out the graphics data to the monitor fast enough. The direct approach quickly falls apart when the memory access time becomes more than an insignificant fraction of the length of the pixel clock cycles. But yes, even ordinary SRAMs are quite fast these days and the pixel clock is going to be at a relatively low frequency to support the very low resolutions.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
