There are prizes!

Today is also a Triple XP day; log 30 XP by voting on at least 15 items and help us determine the best of Pixel Day.


Pixel Day started as a suggestion by @RealFaction and was first celebrated in 2016. Today is the five year anniversary!


The Pixel Day site skin and promo art this year is once again by @moawling, who creates some killer pixel cities for us to inhabit.


Newgrounds is also hosting a Phaser Game Jam. If you have a game you’ve made with pixel art that hasn’t been shared on NG, today would be a great day to do it!

Damn, now I wish I waited an extra month to upload my pixel art kitty from 2017 so I could have had something to contribute to Pixel Day 2020. Oh well. I love a lot of the pixel art uploaded already for Pixel Day 2020.

Aaand the purple's back! :D It's definitely a different atmosphere like this, almost has a neon-like party vibe to it...


Orange finna look refreshingly sober and readable tomorrow too.

I've submitted a pixelly game for this fun occasion! It's a little bit old, but until this week it was only available on the Google Play store.
