2D pixel-art action platformers are everywhere, but Adventures of Pip has gone somewhat meta with the idea. Up on Kickstarter for $40,000 (call it £24,100ish), it’s about a pixel called Pip that’s attempting to save his fantasy kingdom.
The hook is that, as you progress, new levels of detail will be unlocked, transforming pip from a simple block and into more complex shapes. More pixels means more powers but also a larger and heavier frame, meaning that switching between them all is the key. The same, cute idea pervades the world, extending to more powerful enemies having higher visual detail. There’s a pitch video below if you’ve enough pixels in your heart to click through.
