The New Age of Pixelated Games

Pixelated Games

With so much noise in the gaming industry, we often forget about the titles that inspired what is popular today. The 80's and 90's sparked a creative awakening in video game history that would forever impact the generations of gamers and game developers that followed. With Pixels, platforms, chip-tunes, and bright lights, the floodgates of our imaginations were now opened. Pixelated games helped shape us into the people we are today, and we’re glad they did.

Indie Games Blog is an indie games blog for anyone who remembers what it was like to wake up early on Saturday morning, controller in hand, eyes wide, and mind reeling. Our little corner of the internet focuses on today’s pixelated games. Our mission - to spread the word about the greatest 8 and 16 bit indie games of the modern age. That way, you can play the best old school games, today! Our staff works toward creating a community for those who share the same appreciation for this generation in pixelated gaming. If you love pixel art, bleeps, bloops, rage quit level challenge, and old school nostalgia, then this indie game blog is for you. Join us in our quest to celebrate the nostalgic union of pixel art and modern indie games.
