"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.

Not bad at all! The premise was quite good, but the execution was a little tedious and predictable. I'm not sure it's quite as uplifting as you wanted it to be, but it's certainly not bad at all! The music was a little grating at times, and after a while the gameplay tends to get in the way of the story. Overall, I enjoyed it, though. Possibly won't be coming back to play it again, but my time wasn't wasted!

I glitched. Didn't feel like repeating the game. The room where the blocks start falling. Was supposed to kill me. Instead I was trapped for eternity. All fourteen pixels of me under a block that jumped up and down with me. Seemed like a decent game. A little confusing as to your emotional journey however.


talhakaya responds:

I'm sorry, I'm going to fixed that. But the good news is, there is a save system in the game, which spawns you right back to the level you were on. Just press "Continue Game".

Descent enough platformer but the message that you should kill yourself because you cant actually change who you enough that some random chick likes you seems quite drastic.


talhakaya responds:

It's not about killing yourself. Hans did not kill himself. He escaped his utopia to get back to living in real world. Thanks for playing!
