Pixel-Art in video games, not just some squares.

A reminder that Steel Assault launches September 28'th, on PC & Switch.
Quite possibly one of the finest and most authentic pixel art right now. I tried the demo during the last Steam demo event and it wouldn't have been looked out of place as a SNK or Irem arcade back in the 90s.

This was already mentioned by another user on page 1 of this thread, but it's coming out tomorrow as I post this. It's an 8-bit Metal Gear parody game called UnMetal. The developer previously made an action RPG called Unepic which I really like and this seems to have the same dumb lowbrow humor.


Comes out on all the platforms September 28'th.

That looks like an Amiga Spaceballs "State Of The Art" demo reference at the 0:22 second mark....

So there's a new Steam NEXT event with tons of new demos.
First game I tried was Transiruby, a pixelart metroidvania with some real heavy Cave Story vibes. Stopped playing it after the first boss and wishlisted it.
I particularly like how animation and movement actually follows the pixel grid and does not go sub-pixel. Some elements like text are higher resolution which sucks. But nothing a little ReShade can't fix.
Coming this autumn for PC and Switch later.

One thing i dislike about these kinda threads are the people not putting names next to the games.

Great thread otherwise
