Creepy Castle - Kickstarter Trailer - Youtube
Watching the Kickstarter trailer for Creepy Castle. The game goes well beyond the fascination with NES games by about 5 years with C64-like #pixel graphics and similarly chippy music. But it blends far more recent RPG elements of levelling up, bosses, items and turn-based combat into the mix. This is a truly unique looking game. Lots of fun!
Ikenfell - Kickstarter Trailer - Youtube
Reading up about Ikenfell, a turn-based RPG based around a magic school. Visually, it looks like a cross between NES / SNES, lovely #pixel graphics. Looks really fun! The Kickstarter did over $60k with a goal of $25k, pretty awesome.

Crawl Greenlight Trailer (HD) - Youtube
I love the Swords n Sorcery type of #pixel graphics with taller players and no outlines. #Crawl, a local multiplayer dungeon crawler makes things interesting by putting your friends in control of the monsters. Power ups and loot and all that good stuff abound.
Caveblazers - Spelunkin! - Ep 1 - Caveblazers Early Access Gameplay - Youtube
Caveblazers is 30% off this weekend!! It seems to borrow quite heavily from #Spelunky in terms of the graphics and some mechanics, but that's a good thing. Still, tons of weapons, items, places to explore that are original and fun. Don't sleep on it!
Picontier Teaser Movie [EN] - Youtube
Just discovered this cute little Steam Greenlight game called #Picontier by the same guy () 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.
Trudi Castle, Myspace, Hinterland, Bourassa, Graphics
A quick stroll through the portfolio (http://www.trudiart.com/) of concept artist Trudi Castle () reveals a surprisingly wide range of styles. There's the beautiful and moody work on Hinterland Studios The Long Dark on one end and the playful, almost toddler-esque sugar coated graphics on World of Thingies and iconic 'Parkitect' monsters on the other. There's even a digi-comic collaboration (https://www.profil3.com/banana-story-baavj) between herself and Chris Bourassa for Darkest Dungeon.
Western Press Launch Trailer - Youtube
Watching the trailer for Western Press. Superb #pixel graphics and dueling gunslinger action but with a rhythm (think dance dance revolution) twist. You have a few seconds to punch a complex combo of keys. Whoever gets it first fires first. Pretty cool! Steam
Let's Kickstart! - Steel Assault - A NES styled 2-D platformer - Youtube
Watching GIF's of #SteelAssault, an upcoming Robot Action Platform game. There's some really unique elements here (ie ziplining vertically) coupled with great Genesis / SNES style graphics. Nice work.

Invisigun Heroes - Alpha Gameplay (August 2016) - Youtube
The graphics in Invisigun Heroes are sooooooooooo good. Tho tbh I'm not crazy about the actual game mechanics, but it is unique - a multiplayer, single-screen battle arena where everyone's invisible. Would love it if this were a puzzle game or RPG. But it is fresh...
