Post-apocalyptic pixel art at its very best, Death Trash is going to be one of the most promising upcoming pixel art titles. This gritty, gruesome and twisted cyberpunk RPG takes inspiration from classic titles such as Planescape: Torment, seeing the player take the control of both real-time dialogue and real-time combat, both of which can end in death!
Boasting a strange array of weird and wonderfully creepy creatures to point your post-apocalyptic weapons at, it is evident that creator Stephen Hövelbrinks has worked tirelessly to produce such an original title. We seriously can’t wait to get our hands on Death Trash, ‘when it’s done’.
Children of Morta
Brought to you by the very same studio that created ‘This War of Mine’ and the upcoming resource management title, Frost Punk, Children of Morta is 11 bit studio’s latest addition to the pixel art genre.
This stunning rogue-lite hack n’ slasher sees the player progress through lush procedurally generated levels, developing your characters and discovering more about the game’s narrative the further you progress.
This is yet another huge pixel art title to come from this studio that created both Moonlighter and Beat Cop and is showing massive promise for its release later this year.
Sticking with a similar theme, Noita is another upcoming procedurally generated rogue-lite title that shows great promise.
While still in its early stages of development, Noita is stated as being ‘a magical action rogue-lite where every pixel is physically simulated’. This is what the developer, Nolla Games, has called pixel-based physics, meaning that every pixel in the world can be destroyed. The player must use their magic to burn, explode and melt their way through the world, creating new spells to find new ways to delve deeper into the procedurally generated world and find new ways of obliterating your enemies. One must be careful, however, as death is permanent.
With no release date set, the title looks promising and will be coming to early access when its ready.
