"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 loved the concept behind the story, and the ending was quite nice. I'd play it again and again if I didn't know how it ended. The part where Hans has inner turmoil against himself after the cheerleader dipped was very difficult for me at first, but once I was able to pass the specific part I am mentioning, it was I had gained the relief from that instance as well.

I just wanted to say how great of a game you've made. It really hits the spot. Just kinda coming out of puberty or the "puberty mindset" I was touched to see the messages inside the game that I've come to learn in my own life throughout the years and more recently. It's been awhile since I have visited this site, maybe since my starting puberty years, and it's just amazing how life really works. This game speaks volumes and I am grateful to have stumbled upon it today. Some may see it as a random occurrence, others would say it was fate. I say it was just a matter of time. Thank you! You're message is well received and I hope others will be able to see that, in time.
