While many of us played these games featured in Steven Lefcourt’s 8-Bit Fatality series, how many of us stopped and thought about how our actions were affecting those who inhabited these 8-bit worlds?
If you prick them with an arrow do they not agonize? If you tickle them with electricity do they not fry? If you poison them with an overabundance of air do they not spill their guts? And if we wrong them, shall they not seek revenge? Of course, they may seek revenge but we’ll just stomp, smash, devour, and more all over again!
And if this series wasn’t too much of a reality check, you may also like The Darker Side of 8-bit.

WAITER, THERE’S SOME DONKEY KONG IN MY BURGERTIME
*Pardon the edit but it seems somehow the original article was changed before posting*
These arcade art prints come from 9times1minus1 who mashed up multiple arcade classics like Centipede, Donkey Kong, Dig Dug as well as many more. It’s a subtle change that’s so clever and honestly I’d love to see these as actual mash-up games in an arcade collection.
These are also available as art prints for $25 over at 9times1minus1’s Etsy Store.
