"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.

This was great. I just came back from a shitty night out, where all the time I thought "I'd like to be someone else", then I come home, play this game, and... I don't know, it made me feel good :)
Well done! Sometimes, these kind of games are boring and too much trying to "be deep", but yours was not only fun to play, but also spot-on and meaningful
So, thank you :)

Good job on the art and music too!

A very well made game!
I enjoyed every second of it.
Also, i really liked the message after the credits.For me at least it meant,that either one of us could be Hans...a random person.

talhakaya responds:

thank you! Glad you enjoyed it :) A lot of people don't see that message. Yes the message was, a lot of people around you could be feeling like Hans did. Thanks for the lovely comment :)

A very meaningful game.
Don't change yourself for others to like you, be yourself for others to like you.
