A TV Series entirely in 16bit pixel art? :: Code Monkeys
Well i would be Referring to Code Monkeys of course...
Code Monkey's was a early tv series created and aired on G4 tv, the show's main premise was to appeal to gamers, especially ones who remembered the good old days. The show is entirely in pixel art and is based around 2 very early video game designers in the 1980's. Before you start thinking this is a kids show just because it is a cartoon, think again. Sex , Drugs, Hitler, and a good amount of violence are ever present themes in most episodes. The tv-show aired for 2 seasons before it got shut down due to low viewer ratings...probably because they aired the show like once a god damn week. Episodes include tons of easter eggs referring to just about every popular video game from super mario all the way down to pong. This show was created for gamers and only gamers :)
not a lot of great clips of the show on youtube, so here is the best i could find : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWuc5fwxdBw&feature=channel
