"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 didn't know people would actually be able to relate to this... that's so sad...
Why'd he kill himself at the end?!
WOW! that's terrible!!! TBH I didn't like it much, too repetitive and annoying music for me... 1/5 You're lucky i'm being generous.

You play with the evolution of the player made by pixels, and no everyone can do it... It's the best pixel game i have ever played, so congratulations. Keep it up, you'll be a master in videogame industry. ^_^
