Indie Game Blog for Pixel 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.
