Discussing Pixel Art As A Movement – The Greatest Game (Feat. Mark Ferrari)

In the latest episode of The Greatest Game, host Chase Williams is joined by artist Mark Ferrari (Thimbleweed Park, The Secret of Monkey Island) to discuss pixel art as an art movement. The pair discuss pixel art’s likeness to poetry and its parallels to impressionism, the movement’s separation from a gaming context, whether or not pixel art has an endpoint due to its narrower constraints, and a lot more.

Hosted by InnoGames’ Chase Williams, The Greatest Game is an OK Beast podcast mini-series dedicated to the discussion of philosophy, aesthetics, and art theory – through the lens of video games.
