Say Goodbye to the Command Line

Just because you want to make games that look and feel like they were from the 80s doesn't mean you have to use tools like that. Pixel Vision 8 is the first Fantasy Console to introduce a fully modern OS written entirely from the ground up to run at 256 x 240. There is no command-line here. Enjoy having a rich user interface that merges the modern luxuries of today's computers with the nostalgia of 1985.

Playing Games

Pixel Vision 8 supports playing games with controllers, the keyboard or a mouse. Games are self-contained and can even save their progress. You can share PV8 games with your friends that also have a copy of Pixel Vision 8.

Insert A Disk

Pixel Vision 8 is like a real game console. Just drop any PV8 disk file onto the window and watch it load up! Each disk can contain a single game or a collection of games. You can even have one game load another game inside the same disk to create more significant experiences.

The Pro Tools

While Pixel Vision 8 includes a full set of tools for free, the Pro Tools installer offers even more enhancements for making games. This upgrade unlocks additional functionality in the Color, Sound, and Music Tools as well as adding all-new Chip Editor and Font Tool. The Pro Tools also open up the ability to export PV8 games as stand-alone executables for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
