The New Age of Pixelated Games

Pixelated Games

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