A long while ago I was asked to write a book about video game pixel art, but at the last minute told to focus on something that really wasn’t my forte. So I started working on a new book about the things I wanted to write about.
Ripping the fonts and sprites from Robotron 2084.
The long story about resurrecting my Robotron arcade board, and most of its peripheral parts.
I’m on holiday in Japan, where the retro game scene has imploded upon itself, and so my thoughts turn with a distinctly rose-tinted nostalgia to my own gaming history. Things were, as you young whippersnappers must know by now, so much better when I was your age.
Long a standard element in platform games, platforms with grass on ’em!
Talking about grass, the kind you find in good old games.
Going off a bit about the XBone back when such things mattered to me.
