Link of the Week: Pixel Press
When you imagine a video game designer, you probably think of a person sitting in front of a computer coding instead of a kid sitting at a desk with a pencil and paper. But Pixel Press––an iOS app currently in development––wants to change that by enabling its users to draw and play their own video games. Inspired by their own experience growing up in the 80s, Pixel Press’ developers want to give anyone with an imagination the chance to create Mario-type games, unhindered by their lack of technical expertise.
We loved the idea of this app, not just because it looks like fun, but also because of the unique way it engages its users. By eliminating the barriers to designing videogames, Pixel Press encourages people to embrace their creative side and to truly take ownership of the games they play.
