The Longest Road on Earth is out on Steam and Android/iOS! It's a monochromatic pixel art adventure published by RawFury and developed by Brainwash Gang. The game features four different wordless narratives with a collection of heartfelt songs. Pixel art has been developed by pixel artists Edu Verz and Atskaheart. Music has been made by Beicoli.
The game combines different shots, from open panoramic city views to detailed descriptive close ups. Pixel art has been the best visual approach to produce this contrast between suggestion and description by playing with different resolutions.
Aseprite keeps getting better and better.

It is available through the beta channel on Steam.
