What happens to a video game world when its cartridge is left unplayed? Well, that’s exactly what the creators of The Forgotten Pixels hope to explore. The Forgotten Pixels is a crowdfunded animation project inspired by classic games like The Legend of Zelda and Pokémon, created by our friends Chris Pavlou, of ChrisCrossMedia; Hombre de Mundo, of Zelda Universe; Braxton Burks, of Pokémon Reorchestrated; and many more talented people.
“If you want it put short, this is the story about a video game cartridge that never got played, and what happens to the world inside it. What happens when the game never gets played? Well, that’s a very, very interesting question.” — Daniel Åkerman, Screenwriter
