For my own personal reference, apart from anything else, my contributions start here.

Flagged this since sites like this show a definite bias against those of us completely lacking artistic talent.

Really? I haven't seen anything resembling artistic talent on this site.

I saw this on WAXY the other day. One issue I had with it was that there was no way to see, from the front page, what was interesting. You land on the front page, and there's no link to other pages, just whats on the front page. I found if you clicked through to edit the page, you could get to the more familiar - Recent Changes - page to see stuff being worked on.

Wow. Found NSFW explicit pixel-art inside the starry void inside a flower.

I got anally raped in a shower. Why do all games I play end like this?

Aww, I killed the dragon, after torching the world.

But! The raptor is bringing the receptionist her purse!

I have to say, I strongly recommend staring at the sun, visiting the spiral galaxy, and learning the alphabet.

Doesn't this mostly lead to a wall of cocks?

BTW, this reminds me a lot of lo-res graphics on the Apple ][. Certainly painting giant colorful blocky pixels on your TV was the most fun you could have with a computer circa 1980.

I really like the random spooky haunted-escape-game style houses. Especially when I finally unlock the door and it takes me to some aliens smoking a bong, or a giant pixel dick. I'm not joking, I really like it.
