I'd play this Bloodborne demake

The first time I saw Eileen the Crow, I was startled and almost attacked her on the spot. That would've gone badly. She's a powerful hunter -- easily one of the coolest in Yharnam -- and turning against her even late into the game (whether...   read

These 8-bit movie posters are gold

I love a good minimalist take on a piece of modern pop culture, even more so when the result taps into good ol' 8-bit gaming nostalgia. To that end, graphic designer Eric Palmer has whipped up a set of NES-style movie poster demakes. They l...   read

Mega Man Legends would probably make a kick-ass NES game

I really hope that Mega Man Legends isn't still a sore topic for some of you, because you gotta appreciate this upcoming little number for the hotness that it is without any baggage attached. What you see is a concept video of a Mega Man L...   read



Scope this Halo pixel demake from Mojang's art director

I've always wondered what Fallout would be like in the hands of a Japanese studio, and I'm surely not alone in pondering such a concept. This official demake is a glimpse into what that could be like -- just on a much smaller scale. Even if...   read

Demo of Super Smash Land demake releasing this Friday

From simple 8-bit still image interpretations to full-on games, demakes are delightful. I love to fantasize about the ways modern games and their mechanics might have been implemented on classic consoles. As is often the case with fan effo...   read


More demakes than you can shake a pixelated stick at

Demakes are just plain fun. I'm sorry, but reimagining a game for the past can be some of the most clever stuff you'll ever see. For example, take junkboy's work over at Pixelation. He shares an impressive amount of demakes he's done o...   read


Master Chief joins the Atari age in Halo 2600

As I've probably said before, demakes are a pretty cool thing. The idea of playing Halo on an Atari 2600 won't cause anybody to cancel their pre-order of Reach but it might give you a few minutes of amusement. Halo 2600 is a ...   read
