Ode To Pixel Days

"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.


Just another flash game using an extremely generic gameplay style as a carrier for some story that's supposed to be "OMG SO DEEP" just because it's made of pixels and there's mellow music playing.

This isn't art. It's manipulation. Trying to whore attention by being exactly like every "art game" that the public seems to eat up just because they want to appear to have a richer sense of personal taste.

And if you truly believe that you're "reaching out to people" with this, not only should you fucking get over yourself, you should bloody well know that the type of people you're trying to carry the message to would play this, immediately ignore the "message", and go back to being selfish deluded fat fucks that think they're better than everyone else and deserve better than the rest of the world because that's the way they are.

I just wanted to express myself. I really didn't think I deserve better than anybody or I deserved a "hot girlfriend". The game is not about that.

Great! i just completed the game!
I didn't get the ending, but thats nothing comparing to a fun time i spent during that story.
5 stars for a interesting game
