Retro Television Never Looked Spriter

Retro Television Never Looked Spriter

by Steve Napierski to Videos

PUNGA recently created an awesome pixel commercial for FOX Italy to promote their retro television lineup. Next step is turning this awesome artwork into an actual game.

Things like this reinforce just how beautiful pixel/sprite video games can truly be. Sure, they don’t have the polygons of most modern titles, but games like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game or Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP clearly demonstrate that polygons are overrated. There’s just something about a being limited by a specify number of usable sprites in a limited amount of space that inspire artist to make some extremely creative choices.

    B. A. as Donkey Kong? Isn’t that kind of a racist interpretation? Despite that, cool piece of art.

      Well, he certainly looks bigger and stronger than all the others characters in the video…
