Happy Pixel Day! 2021-01-23 08:09:04


Happy Pixel Day!


Today is Pixel Day, our annual celebration of pixel art. You can participate by sharing your own original pixel art, animation, games or chiptunes, using the pixelday2021 tag.


There are prizes for each category, read about them in the Pixel Day lauch post.


The winners of @Mabelma’s Pixel Day sticker raffle are @ChronoNomad, @Cyberdevil, @Pickle578, @IntBeast and Ghost27 (account unknown). They will each receive the sticker pack referenced in this raffle post!


The Pixel Day site skin this year is by @Sorapoi and was inspired by this piece:



Our Pixel Day promo banner is by @maruki!



Take some time to browse around today and enjoy the festivities! Helpful links:

Shout out to @JohnnyGuy, who originally suggested Pixel Day as an event!


This is our sixth Pixel Day, check out the previous years.


Flash Forward


Yesterday we introduced new Flash viewing options and extended the deadline for our Flash Forward Jam until the end of February. We're making new Ruffle-friendly Flash games, with over $2,600 in prizes!


Flashback


Here’s a classic game where you draw your own pixel monster and battles against other monsters:



It’s now running without Flash, thanks to Ruffle!

Happy Pixel Day!!!!


I actually made something this year! It's my first pixel art and my first animated gif and I used some free website and a 15 year old wacom tablet to make it.

If you guys have recommendations for a good program I should buy and/or a better tablet, HMU.


If you have suggestions on how I could suck less, they probably won't help, I'm pretty far gone.

I entered the raffle last night. Saw your name up there and got a little envious. Only a little though, my boyfriend would get so confused if a package of stickers came through the mail. Nowhere to put them, I'd probably stick them all on my cats.

Happy Pixel Day! Love the new purple color scheme that came out of it!

You can maybe console yourself a little with how I'll at least be paying extra for that international shipping. ;) lmao, hope you win some other set though sometime, that'd be fun to witness!

What an awesome homage. Captures that magical Brackenwood atmosphere just perfectly too.
