“Enjoy the Science,” the newest release from 8 Bit Operators includes Depeche Mode’s greatest hits, as covered by C64-remix, gwEm, Herbert Weixelbaum, Aonami, Bacalao, Gameboy Music Club, Firestarter and more.

Here are some 8-bit style animated GIFs of famous movie moments by Slovakia-based artist Dusan Cezek. For kitsch, “Pixelwood” series is really outstanding, with perfect color schemes (that very Wes Anderson orange in Cezek’s The Life Aquatic tho!)  and narrative humor (Hulk mad!!!… Hulk brb).

Here’s an 8-bit Indiana Jones on a quest through the 8-bit sands of Dali’s Persistence of Memory, admiring a droopy clock. There’s The Secret of Monkey Island crossing over with Van Gogh’s Cafe Terrace on the Place Du Forum, its post-Impressionist swirls translating nicely as vintage digital grains. Designer Aled Lewis made these brand new […]
