Grand Theft Retro

Modern video games recreated with a retro twist

Grand Theft Retro is the outcome of a self-initiated brief, seeking to find out what modern video games would look like had they have been produced during the 8-bit era of the eighties. Combining a nostalgic passion for past video games and the discovery of animation, I took two popular modern games - Grand Theft Auto 5 and Resident Evil - and reproduced them with a retro twist. Using techniques in pixel art production and the inspiration from such classic games as Castlevania and Maniac Mansion, I produced a series of animations reminiscent of the demo screens of the past with packaging to match.
