5 Neo-Classical Pixel Games to Follow on Twitter
Follow the indie gaming community on Twitter, and you'll come to realize just how popular neo-classical gaming aesthetics are. Pixel graphics abound, setting indie games apart from AAA titles and hearkening back to highly influential 8- and 32-bit titles. When well-executed, these titles gain immense - and immensely deserved - followings.
If you're a fan of pixel-heavy games, here are five great Twitter accounts to follow.
Looking for a great tactical RPG in the vein of Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre? You'll love Arcadian Atlas. The game is currently in development on Steam, but you can keep a close watch on it if you follow @ArcadianAtlas on Twitter.
I fell in love with Möira the first time I saw it. Granted, I was really into Final Fantasy Legend II back in the day. Like Arcadian Atlas, Möira isn't available to play yet, but you can still follow its development on Twitter.
Odallus: The Dark Call

Odallus: The Dark Call is Metroidvania, through and through, but it comes with the added bonus of having quite a few Twin Peaks references thrown in throughout. You can get it now on Steam for $14.99.
Secrets of Grindea
Looking for a cool action-RPG? Secrets of Grindea is a semi-serious send-up of the beloved Seiken Densetsu series. You can grab Secrets of Grindea on Steam Early Access for $14.99.
OK, so WLewis isn't a game at all, but a game developer. More specifically Lewis is a game engine developer who makes assets for Game Maker: Studio. If you're interested in game development, you can check out his work on the YoYo Games marketplace.
These are just some of my favorite neo-classical indie titles, but trust me, there are plenty more where these came from. What games do you follow on Twitter? Let me know in the comments!
