8-Bit Cinema: A Christmas Story

You’ll shoot your eye out, kid! The guys from 8-Bit Cinema retell the oft-quoted holiday classic as a pixelated console adventure game. They really should have had a minigame where you have to glue the leg lamp back together.

Animator What Pixel You On takes the retro pixel art style and breathes new life into it by popping it into the third dimension. If our old Nintendos could have done this, we’d probably still be playing them.
