Pixels: 8-bit takes over the world

I love seeing new technology affected by the old. PIXELS is a new digital short from onemoreproduction’s Patrick Jean. It’s high tech 8-bit animation meets live action New York City, a 2-minute assault on the city by your favorite 8-bit characters. Space Invaders, Tetris blocks, brick breakers, Pac Man and Donkey Kong wreak havoc on the city, eventually culminating with a bomb explosion that converts the Earth into a pixel. Yes, 8-bit destroys or reality, but it’s done so well that you can’t not smile. Props to Patrick for making us think about nostalgic video games in whole new way. Here’s hoping for a longer sequel.
