"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.

most games that try to teach a lesson on newgrounds have no challenge, but this was just hard enough to make me want to keep playing. Good Job!

Wow, this is really, really cool. With some of these "story games" it feels like they're just relying on a sort of tired and cheesy romance story and don't really but any effort into the actual game, just hoping people will be taken in by the whole "artsy" part of it that they won't notice that the game isn't actually interesting. The game itself was simple but fun and the story was really intriguing as well. One of the coolest games of it's kind I've seen on here
