Pixels x Paper showcases both Bitsy games and Flatgames side by side. This show will be open from the 9th till the 19th.

The goal of the Bitsy engine was, β€œto make it easy to make games where you can walk around and talk to people and be somewhere.” and that could be said for Flatgames mainfesto too. Both types of games focus on visuals and narrative in a way that is accessable to people who don’t typically make or play games. The result has been games with a unique perspective made from close communities of game developers from all over the world.


At the opening, there will be a panel with NYC independent game developer Jenny Jiao Hsia, and the creator of Bitsy, Adam LeDoux.

There will also be tunes, a large curation of games to play, zines to read, and pizza!
