Modern TV Re-Imagined in Pixel Art

I love these series of pixel art created by designer Robert Penney from Penney Design, showing modern TV shows and films re-imagined as retro, old-fashiobed games. Take for example, the tv show Lost, which has been designed as a traditional point-and-click game, very strongly reminiscent of the Monkey Island game (they’re both on an island after all):

I also love the designer’s other pixelated interpretations of famous TV shows and popular films from the 21st century (click on the link to see more) my favourites are below and there’s also some great Transformer pizels which made me giggle:

I love the imagination of this designer, the overall effect is simple yet extremely realistic (I’d certainly buy a few of these games!). Plus in terms of giggle-factors, this ratches up a few notches in my funny-book : )

The images are also available to buy on print, this designer also does other images and commissions (have a browse, everything looks absolutely amazeable, and the designer seems like a terribly nice chap).
