Adam Jensen, the gruff’n’tough  Sarif Industries security officer from rather excellent open world cyberpunk thriller Deus Ex : Human Revolution, now given a certifiably improved pixel update from last time.

He may not have asked for this update, but I’m fairly sure he won’t mind.

Here is a small but super eager office-working robot to brighten up your afternoon !

I originally made him up as part of a commission piece, but he was rejected in favour of another design - thought he deserved a new home on the blog instead.

Some more progress on that font - I’ve now made the entire alphabet, including all of those funny accent variations and even a full bunch of keyboard symbols too ! 

Just as soon as I figure out how to translate this into the proper filetype, I’ll release this as a free downloadable font somewhere. Whaddya say ?

Finally got the chance to work up some rudimentary animations for a basic RED teammate.

Spawning, Shooting, Running, Dodging and BoomSploding - all accounted for in a tiny 20 x 20 pixel size “blown up” for you to see !

Now, to build the rest of it …

From my oft-neglected game development blog - hark ! It’s a snazzy animated post !

Do check it out, s’il vous plait ?

Hark ! A new set of additions to the Etsy Store be coming over the Horizon !

It’s taken a little while, but we’ve finally worked out the kinks with making custom photographic art prints - so now you can finally get your hands on two new prints based on the popular "Mjolnir" and "NES" pieces !

Each one comes in 4x6, 5x7 and 8x10 sizes, and make a lovely addition to any budding connoisseur of the nostalgic pixelated arts - and prices only start at $3 !

And for vinyl sticker fans a new "NES"-inspired sticker pack has also been released, featuring super low-res versions of four iconic games alongside the console itself for only $4 a pop.

So what are you waiting for ? Check them out now - only on the PixelBlock Etsy Store !

Random Characters Doing Random Things

Sometimes, when I have a few minutes of spare time, I do a little experimentation. Often, the outcome is slightly silly, albeit in a wonderful sort of way.


This is one of those things.

Stan The Salesman, the fast-talking, finger-snapping and foot-tappingest entrepreneur encountered throughout the classic “Monkey Island” adventure game series, now given his very own 23 x 27 pixel mini-tribute.

Is there anything he hasn’t tried to sell at some point ?

Is it a boy ? Is it a girl ? All we know is that it’s the latest cuddly crochet creation to hit the PixelBlock store - the ever wonderful Mr Saturn from Nintendo’s “Mother” series !

Measuring in at an adorably compact 2 1/2 Inches tall (4 inches if you count the hair!), this little bundle of yarn-based joy features it’s very own set of hand-twirled poseable whiskers, pudgy nose and hand-knit bowtie, making him one of the most eminently huggable aliens you are ever likely to meet.

Put him on your desk ! Leave him on your sofa ! Just don’t leave him near the coffee machine. Saturnian Coffee always has a little bit of a funny aftertaste …

Also comes with a FREE 1 1/2 inch tall sticker of the Pixelblock-ified version -  as featured on the Pixelblock Tumblr blog.

Want one ? Check it out now - only available on the PixelBlock Etsy Store !
