Space Invaders Shake Your Salt and Pepper

Space Invaders Shake Your Salt and Pepper
Boy, it seems like forever since we featured any sort of Space Invaders goodies on the site. Thankfully, the Invaders’ drought appears to be over.

Protect Your Giant Head in 8-Bit Left 4 Dead
Next month, Left 4 Dead may just take a turn for the retro with an unofficial 8-bit version. The video of the NES-style Left 4 Dead has been kicking around for a few weeks – and like any good zombie, it has risen from the dead for us to admire and then blast with a shotgun.

Mountain Maniac: It’S Hammer Time!
Here’s a fun little game if you’re looking for a fun way to kill a little time today. Mountain Maniac is a wonderfully retro-styled Flash game that involves a little pixelated guy and a hammer (and no, it’s not Donkey Kong).

A New Swipe at Pixel Art

A New Swipe at Pixel Art
Pixel art can be made out of all sorts of units, from painted squares to beads… but one item I haven’t previously seen used to product pixel art? Toilet paper rolls. Well, folks, we’ll never be able to say that again.

13 Minutes and 42 Seconds of 3d Dot Game Heroes Gameplay
The folks at Gamersyde were handed some footage of the opening minutes of the PS3 game 3D Dot Game Heroes, From Software’s upcoming homage to classic RPG/Adventure games. The graphics are really neat – it’s like everything is made of cardboard LEGO dot things.

How can you liven up the traditional wedding? True quirkiness goes beyond interesting dresses and video game cakes, as one California couple proved with their 8-bit DIY wedding theme. Forget a regular ol’ bouquet. Let’s get pixelated.

A Tale of Two Mega Men

A Tale of Two Mega Men
It was the biggest of sprites, it was the smallest of sprites… no, wait, I mean they’re both right here next to one another, these Perler bead projects. It’s big Mega Man versus smaller Mega Man: The bigger Mega Man is almost two feet tall–and would look awesome on the wall–but I personally find this a lesson in the truthfulness of the old bigger-is-not-always-better saw.

Even the Best Pixel Art is Kinda Square

Even the Best Pixel Art is Kinda Square
You know, square? Like pixels? Oh, lame jokes, never desert me… and internets, please never stop supplying fantastic fan art. Even the dog from Duck Hunt–my most despised video game nemesis ever–looks great here. Pixel art is a funny thing: it’s both simple and complicated.

Futurama Fans Get Invaders! Possibly From Space!

Futurama Fans Get Invaders! Possibly From Space!
Remember the classic episode of Futurama where Fry has to save the planet from “Invaders! Possibly from Space?” Pretty soon, you’ll be able to take down those aliens while listening to your own all-Rush mix tape while chugging a 2-liter bottle of Shasta too.

Pinky the Ghost Pixel Art Mosaic Made From 3.5-Inch Floppy Disks [Pac-Man]
Got 256 old 3.5-inch floppy disks lying around the house? I can’t think of a better use for a bunch of floppies but to make a giant 16×16 pixel art Pinky ghost mosaic out of them.

NES Quilt Celebrates Nostalgic Diversity

NES Quilt Celebrates Nostalgic Diversity
There’ve been a lot of bad-ass 8-bit quilts spread across the Internet, but usually, they’re dedicated to one game, serving as a showcase for a single NES-era memory. Not so with this quilt; this bad boy is more about the entire experience, so it’s fitting that it’s called “THE” Nintendo Quilt.

Click Oven Mitts: Pixelated Potholders
I don’t usually associate computers with cooking, but that doesn’t mean that your geek style shouldn’t find its way into your kitchen. Brazilian designer Anderson Horta’s Clicking Kitchen Grip oven mitts are inspired by the little pixels of the hand cursor from your computer.

Bandai Luminodot: Like a Lite-Brite on Steroids
The Lite-Brite is one of my fondest childhood toy memories. Maybe it was the fact that it was THE original way to make pixel art. Or maybe it was the “living on the edge” thrill that any minute I could choke on one of the of hundreds of tiny candy-like pegs.
