"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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

One of the most beautiful games I've ever played.
Combined the two best things I love the most in games:
Firstly, a message.
Secondly, challenging puzzles.
I hope you make more such games in the future.

I especially enjoyed the ending sequence, when Hans flew.
That in combination with the musicwas so pleasantly sad.

This game spells out a lot of the difficulties I was personally going through throughout primary school and high school. It was captured extremely well, the puzles were straight-forward and creative, fighting yourself took me a fair while to figure out, but an awesome game nonetheless. 5 stars and a favourite for you, my friend.

talhakaya responds:

thanks! very glad you liked it. Glad you didn't hate the challenges! Thanks also for the favorite!
