lol, nice try though
This is great. Thank you :D
great documentary! makes me want to try pixel art
What I find quite odd, is that there's no minecraft in this documentary.
(or was minecraft created after 2010?)
A fine little film 🙂 I grew up with an N64, not an NES, but my recent obsession with Indie Games has really endeared pixel art to me.
Anyone wondering what game is in 10:16. It's Sword and Sworcery.
A fascinating look into PixelArt, its history and it place in today's world of art and nostalgia. Great work.
name of the game at 10:16 ?
10:16 I wish they made them like that again.
I am going to be completely honest. I clicked this because the thumbnail was of a song that i've been looking for for months now. I cannot thank you enough for giving me the name of that song.
A pixel is NOT a little square. (alvyray.com/Memos/CG/Microsoft/6_pixel.pdf)
his voice…gosh….make it stop.
most 3rd world countries would watch this vid in 240p
Cool video. Very inspirational. Subscribed! My artwork and music in the last couple of years has shifted to pixel art and chiptunes (and partial chiptunes). I have 12 music videos on my channel, all with old school style graphics. It's probably mostly the nostalgia factor for me. There's just something about it. So basic, maybe that's it. It's cool to see all the other pixel art animations in your documentary made by some amazing animators!
Hipsters everywhere in this doc!!
