Noirlac‘s video game pixel art will make many nostalgic for the good old 8-bit Nintendo days. The video game developer from Ubisoft is responsible for a collection of fantastic GIFs that are reminiscent of childhood days. He has captured stills of landscapes, characters and abstract images from old school video games and layered them with frames to create these digital blinking pictures.

Although these games were from a time where technology was not as advanced to create photorealistic images, they were still full of beautiful details. From the tiny city lights to the tiny pixelated leaves on the trees, the detail in Noirlac’s fan art is artistic and sophisticated.

Noirlac has created over 10,000 pixelated art pieces since 2010 and although he does not say which games each image comes from, he considers himself a fanboy of pixel art. The artist intends to highlight the beauty and vision that goes into these adorable pixel designs. Stats for Video Game Pixel Art Trending: Older & Warm
