Pixelation is moving to a new host.
This will probably result in a couple of days worth of downtime.
Everything should be back to normal asap.
Still with fugly skin and no zoom stuff atm, but we will address that asap.
In case no one noticed, Pixelation has a twitter account which is used to post server status and things like that. In case of stuff not working and so on, go there to see what is up (if we know it will be posted there).
Hexquisite Corpse on Pixelation is open.
A short while ago Edge has released a 212 page special called "The Art of The Pixel" which features 24 contemporary pixel artists such as Junkboy, jalonso, huZba, cocefi, Gary Lucken, Johan Vinet, and ptoing. There is a page of info on each artist where they answered questions regarding pixelart as well as images from popular oldschool pixel games interspersed throughout the magazine.
You can either see if you can pick it up at a local store or order it online at:
"Commodore 64: For the Love of a Machine" is a book project by Andreas Wallström about the C64 with lots of interviews of people who helped create the machine as well as game makers and demo sceners, and of course pixel art as well.
The campaign is running for another week and could need a bit of a boost.
Have a look at the campaign page and see if it tickles your fancy.
After a very long time in the making, PJ member ptoing and his crew finally put out a public demo of their latest game Fire Lancer, an oldschool style shmup with modern sensibilities, for the WonderSwan Color. The demo package contains both a rom as well as a PC version.
Head over to http://firelancer.ws/ to download the demo and read about the scoring contest with a cash reward.
