Neo-Retro: Smoothing it Out While Keeping the Pixels


Retro games are no longer just a thing of the past, new games inspired by retro aesthetics and gameplay are coming out almost every year. Since we are no longer bound by restrictions, we can use this to our advantage and take these games a step further. Paul Veer, indie pixel artist and animator, shows how to take advantage of today's more advanced technology to modernize the graphics of your own neo-retro games, in order to create an even stronger nostalgic reaction with your player.
