Pixel Perfect – The Birmingham Press

Fez Windmill
Standard

A brief introduction to the world of pixel art for the Birmingham Press. The article looks at the resurgence of the blocky art style, using Super Time Force and Mercenary Kings as good examples of retro pixel art style games with modern twists, with a brief mention (due to word count, otherwise I’d have happily rambled on for longer) of the likes of FezLone Survivor and The Secret Of Monkey Island.

The Birmingham Press started life as the online twin of an eponymously named local weekly newspaper. The site covers ‘News, views and comment from around the West Midlands and beyond’ from a dedicated and varied team of contributors.
