As a gamer raised on a diet of 8 and 16 bit games, their general aesthetic invokes an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Things like this though – combining my love of modern games with the heady wistfulness of bygone eras – make me giddy.

After the jump you’ll find a collection of videogame demakes created by Swedish artist Junkboy. – pieces of videogame art in which new games are made to look as if they’d been released many years previous. They’re all pretty damned awesome, and some of them are frightfully clever – particularly Red Dead Redemption. If you’ll recall, Red Dead Revolver was originally a Capcom property before being acquired by Rockstar. Its been demade to look like Gun.Smoke, Capcom’s 1985 Western-themed arcade and NES shooter.

Scroll slowly, and see if you can name them all!

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
