Pixel Pants: 8 Bit Underwear

So this Indie Go Go campaign to fund pixelated Underwear is happening. I can’t help but think that the pixels round the edges won’t keep their shape though or will just fold in on themselves.

Still if you are interested more power to you, I’d fund it but I’m not sure they’d suit my not so “girlish” figure. They would go perfectly with these pixelated high heels though…

Pixel Noir Concept Teaser

What is it with retro studios putting the word Pixel before everything in the names of their games? Pixel Noir looks conceptually like a really cool game, all have to go on is the teaser trailer above though.

It’s well worth a watch. And if I’m not mistaken the people making it have named themselves after Cyan from Final Fantasy VII’s signature SWD Tech.

SWDTech Games presents “Pixel Noir” a new take on classic JRPGs giving iOS & Android audiences a unique perspective on classic film noir action, as seen through a 16-bit lens.

Petty 8 Machine: Chiptune Cover of NIN Album

I’ve been listening to a lot of chip-tunes lately mainly because I find that they oddly increase my concentration. Maybe it’s something innate in me that associates the stream of bleeps and bloops with playing really difficult video games?

Anyway the above album by Inverse Phase is a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ Petty hate machine and it’s pretty good.

If you are interested in more chip tunes it’s worth noting that 8 Bit Weapon have recently released a collection of all their music that isn’t licensed to other people for the low price of $20.

Also if you have played the amazing iOS game Super Hexagon, then you can’t have missed the awesome sountrack by Chipzel, which is available to buy for just £2.

Tetris Behind the Scenes

Let the Game Continue (04.10)

This image by Eduardo San Gil explains what is happening behind the scenes when you play a game of Tetris to generate the seemingly random stream of blocks. It was designed for a Threadless T-Shirt which I can’t seem to find anymore. But I did see that someone (Profound Whatever to be specific) had made a simulacrum of the image in Lego:

I also noted this pretty cool Kill Bill Princes Peach crossover image:

If I Drank Beer This is the Only Beer I’d Drink

8 bit

It turns out a company called Tall Grass make an 8-bit Beer, it’s amazing how the fact that it’s 8-Bit has nothing to do with the taste but I still want it.

This video they made makes me like them even more… If only I drank…

8-Bit Tiled Subway Station

I’ve just found a reason to visit Stockholm, not that I had anything against Stockholm, but now I want to go just to see this train station. The tiles are covered in 8-Bit gaming icons, including PacMan, Space Invaders, Super Mario Bros. and I think there are some MacOS 6 Icons there too.

Apparently it’s Thorildsplan Metro Staion on the green line in Stockholm.
