"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.


One of the best indie games I have ever played! Well done good sir!

Haha thank you!!! That's so nice of you to say that :)

One of the most beautiful games I've ever played.
Combined the two best things I love the most in games:
Firstly, a message.
Secondly, challenging puzzles.
I hope you make more such games in the future.

thank you :) very glad you enjoyed it :) I'm a fan of art with message too.

That was awesome dude! Loved the storyline! And also the fact that you focussed on the story telling rather than making the game play difficult! kudos! :D
