5 Neo-Classical Pixel Games to Follow on Twitter

Love pixel art and retro gaming? Follow these great game developer Twitter accounts to get your fix!

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.

Arcadian Atlas

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 AtlasMöira 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!
