Simon Cottee (who we last saw creating something wonderful via Sleep is Death) has filmed a short documentary which delves into the world of pixels and pixel art. It features interviews with a number of indie developers, including SiD's Jason Rohrer.

The main argument is that while some developers try to give gamers a sense of nostalgia with their pixel art graphics harking back to games of old, they're actually creating a "warped" version of the past, with clear, blocky images that look far from what we used to play with. It's pretty interesting stuff, and if you've got a spare ten minutes, it's well worth watching.
