This first video in the series starts things off simply with an explanation of 8-bit color limitations of classic machines like the Commodore 64 and Nintendo Entertainment System. If you are just learning about these things, he makes it super easy to understand, so you won’t get lost. Seriously it is simple stuff explained in a simple way.

In the next video he will be covering Apple II graphics.
