Welcome to the world of Pixls.
Pixls are inhabitants of a completely digital town that love nothing more than to bounce in place forever. Started out of a love for pixelart, these NFTs have been carefully crafted in the nostalgic style of the video games of the past. These little critters are one big dysfunctional community in a digital world. With their own backstories, traits and personalities they truly are all unique inhabitants of the little town of Pixlton on the blockchain.
As a kid of the 80s and early 90s I grew up on graphics consisting of tiny little squares. In modern video games these kinds of graphics would scare people. But, even though they were just squares, the amount of creativity game developers managed to squeeze out of them back in the day is impressive. A few correctly placed squares conveyed all kinds of emotions. There's a reason that a lot of these games are still considered classNameics in their own right, being remastered over the years to inspire new generations of people just like me.
This project started as an hommage to, and out of a love for that pixelart style. That love is at the core of the Pixl project. Before you is the result of an intense labour of drawing up copious amounts of pixel art assets and coding an algorithm around it that forms some truly unique characters. Making other people smile over some of the silly, quirky things coming out of this project makes that effort all worth it though.

Yes, you can! Pixls adhere to the ERC-721 standard, so they can be traded publicly on platforms such as OpenSea. Do make sure you’re buying only Pixls that are contained within the verified collection! These are the only verifiably legitimate Pixls backed by provenance.
What defines the rarity of my Pixls?
Every Pixl has a list of public attributes, but can also contain some hidden attributes. Some of these are visual in nature, some are hidden in their character traits and biographies. Somewhere after the public ends we will release a Pixl explorer on this website that lets you freely browse through them based on their attributes and rarities. However, we firmly believe that at least part of the fun lies in finding out which Pixls are rare for yourself. Until that time we encourage you to enjoy the hunt for these unique attributes and remember to have fun along the way!
