Famous movies as 80s/90s games!

PIXELFEST!

If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you’ve already realized that I really like pixel art, be it highlighting The King of Fighters XII’s modern approach, or giving some tips for creating cool animations. However, pixel art can also be used for reimagining current games in a much simpler form, as Junkboy does, who even includes some gameplay alternatives in his work.

This time I introduce you to Aled Lewis, who uses this retro style to portray some famous movies as famous 80s/90s games:

Thelma and Louise (1991) as Out Run (1986)
