Pixel Press

We’ve all played a game, then thought we knew better how a particular level should work. Maybe we’d have built a wider gap to jump over, or a tougher passage to navigate. Perhaps we’re just tired of it, and are being picky.

What if you could take a drawing of the level you want to play, which you might do anyway, and make it a reality? If Pixel Press has their way, you will. What starts as a drawing on graph paper quickly becomes a game on your tablet or phone.

Currently a kickstarter campaign, and unfortunately being released on iOS first, Pixel Press is easily the coolest concept we’ve seen in a long time. This project is good for all ages, and a terrific way to get viscerally involved in your game. There is no programming required, either. All you have to do is follow a few art principles, and you’re well on your way to gaming excellence.

In regard to Android, the developers are upfront that iOS is the focus, with Android development coming via a stretch goal of $350,000. While we’re not crazy about backing something we’ll have to wait longer than our iOS brethren for, this concept is way too cool not to back. A really simple game that transcends your device, and allows complete manipulation and design on your part.

A video detailing the project is on their page, and we encourage you to support the kickstarter campaign as best you can. Tell us what you think of the concept in the comments section!
