A nifty tool by PJer sharbelfs for color changes on pixelarts
Pixel Palette - Tool for color palette

Hydrus Network - If you have a lot of images on your hardrive and the normal folder system fails to sort them, hydrus is a nice solution. You load you images into the database and tag them. The tool comes with some extras (search for duplicates, download options for different sites and sharing options) and gets updated almost every week. Found and recommended by king_bobston

Sarcastic much?

I never played pong in the US. Actually I almost never played pong (maybe a dozen times at most) and I've almost never been in the US (2 weeks). Both these things happened loooong ago, and were unrelated.

Just a short article about an Atari graveyard.

Well put, well put. I didn't picture you to be much of a linguist. Appearances can be deceitful, I thought your universe revolved around being the best pong player in the USA.

Yes, I've bought it and it's a very good game, albeit shorter and simpler than X-com, no need to mention.

Pixel très pourri.

Is Halway good? It looks kind of X-COMish and I loved that game...

Halfway might be THE game I was waiting for the last 10 years.

The Perturbator video was posted in PixelPourri 6-13-14 too, but it's worth a rewatch. Such 80s, many drama.

It´s pixel pot pourri but jal just writes pixel pourri to get a reaction from me as it works every time.

Anything even remotely pixel related is best but anything worthy of interest is great to share.
Anyone ever finding something interesting just PM me and I'll add to the list.

ohoh, I found something cool. It's a doom-esque fps with neat pixel art that you can play with chrome or firefox phoboslab.org/xibalba/ Not sure if it belongs in the pixelpourri tho, but it is pixel related :S

The controls are the basic, wasd to move, click to shoot and scroll to change weapons (when you find them).
