"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.

I'll be honest, I wanted to ragequit so many times. But I'm stubborn and I went through the whole game ~ I'm glad I did, it was actually quite fun and inspirational; it made me feel like there's a little Hans in everyone :)
Thank you for a wonderful game
+ The part where Hans was 'flying' with the music and his other selves was wonderful!

I often get frustrated with a lot of games, so I know how you felt. I wanted to miniize the frustration but as games try to be challenging, they'll be more frustrating. I hope I'll do better in the future!

The flying scene is my favourite, I think it has something special in it. So I'm very happy you enjoyed it. Cheers! :)
