If you haven’t seen Patrick Jean’s Pixels, then you’re in for a treat. Pixels attack New York. That’s about it. Jean had this to say about the short:
I played all these games when I was young ! Most of them were on Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC or Arcade machines. Another aspect was to mix these two different universes: pixel art and reality. Two universes with different laws of physic. I was curious to see what would come out from this: would one of them eat the other ? I also got my main inspiration from late 80?s blockbusters, like Roger Rabbit or Ghostbusters. I think this aesthetic choice contributes a lot to the nostalgic feeling of it, and nicely fits the retro gaming theme.
