"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.


Makes me cry every time. Don't stop making games. ;_;

thank you! I will continue making games for sure! :)

Be who you are, for your unsightliness is internal. A unique artistic game. Meaningful and deep. I hope it will be frontpaged.

5 stars for a interesting game

Thanks! If you wonder what was the story about, you can click "Extras" on the menu.

I loved the concept behind the story, and the ending was quite nice. I'd play it again and again if I didn't know how it ended. The part where Hans has inner turmoil against himself after the cheerleader dipped was very difficult for me at first, but once I was able to pass the specific part I am mentioning, it was I had gained the relief from that instance as well.
