Lamplight Studios with A Pixel Story
The judges said
Armed with their their Magical Teleportation Hats, the Judges were delighted by this 2D puzzle platformer which charts the evolution of video games
"A Pixel Story is a 2D puzzle platformer where the player embarks on an epic quest through a giant fantastical computer system. As the player progresses, and gets closer to the core of The System, they will find themselves exploring increasingly detailed worlds, mimicking and observing the developments in video games over time. Using the primary mechanic of the player’s special hat, that allows them to save a location and teleport back to it, the player can explore a colourful and diverse world, explore 6 large levels, interact with a diverse range of NPCs and, of course, save the world."
