What happens to a video game world when its cartridge is left unplayed? Well, that’s exactly what the creators of The Forgotten Pixels hope to explore. The Forgotten Pixels is a crowdfunded animation project inspired by classic games like The Legend of Zelda and Pokémon, created by our friends Chris Pavlou, of ChrisCrossMedia; Hombre de Mundo, of Zelda Universe; Braxton Burks, of Pokémon Reorchestrated; and many more talented people.

“If you want it put short, this is the story about a video game cartridge that never got played, and what happens to the world inside it. What happens when the game never gets played? Well, that’s a very, very interesting question.” —
Daniel Åkerman, Screenwriter

Our Verdict

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
