"Ode To Pixel Days" is about a teenage boy, Hans, having a crush on a cheerleader. Hans gets rejected by the cheerleader, because he is ugly, and not charismatic. Hans tries to change this by building a machine that will make everyone look the same. When everyone looks the same, he can have the girl of his dreams! But of course, in reality, things don't work that way; and Hans is about to get into some bitter experiences.

The game is played in a castle, that represents the world created by Hans' mind. The game's artistic goal is to put the players in Hans' mind, to make them play through his emotional experiences, hopes and dreams. The core experience of the game is the feelings a boy goes through when he gets into puberty; loneliness, sadness, low self-esteem, the desire to change things about you and everything around you.

This game is made completely by one person, and that is me.

Sometimes I feel just like Hans. Not chasing cheerleader, but chasing recognition from people. I do care about how people think, but I don't really want to change myself just because have to ingratiate with them, that is just not... me at all. It is very conflicting. Be yourself will became extremely hard when the real you are not so acceptable for society, but it is not anyone's fault, right? This game really touched me, just like how I feel and how confused I am. And now I am so proud that I am part of the video game industry, as a indie game developer. And I find my own way to express myself, like how this game did. This is really amazing. :')
