Have you seen this quirky NES-to-Voxel conversion of Metroid? Interesting programming going on here. Dunno why he's gotta muck with the music though, blasphemy!
Just discovered this cute little Steam Greenlight game called Picontier by the same guy (@Skipmore) behind 1BitRogue. It bills itself as a "slow living miniscape RPG". Essentially you are stuck on an island with nothing to do but farm, craft, mine, fish or explore dungeons. Beautiful pixel graphics and easy-going pace.
On a bit of a pico8 thrill lately. Just found this great zine with the rather unimaginative title of "Pico-8 Zine". Great content / articles! sectordub.itch.io
Excited about 1BitRogue! Heavy, heavy Dragon Quest influence visually and musically.
One of the things I love most about pico8 is the capacity for casual development, which allows for experimental games such as TrasevolDog's Pixel Session vol 1. Quirky, fun, important to have explorations such as these, imho. trasevol-dog.itch.io ... read more
The superb-looking pixel metroidvania Chasm is still on course! Alpha release .53 has just come out.

Reading Tina Amini's Vice article on "Why It's So Hard to Make a Video Game"
I was playing around with trying to make a cool flame effect yesterday using a single Unity shader. Results were neat. I posted a quick tutorial with all the shader code here: gabrielkoenig.com/ghosttime/shader-driven-flame-effect/
captain: Is this for Jetto or something else?
ghosttime: I was prototyping for Jettomero, yeah, but I think this particular experiment doesn't quite fit with my existing aesthetic so I'm abandoning it for now.
Check out this animated movie short (~6min) Borrowed Time. Beautifully executed. vimeo.com
Watching a trailer for High Noon Revolver, pretty awesome looking Action Pixel Blaster... or something.
