We interviewed artist ITZAH all about their work!
1. What inspires your work?
When I was I kid, I had the lucky to play from Atari 2600 to SNES 2D games. So my inspiration comes from the nostalgia of the games I played as a Kid. I never thought I would become a pixel artist or game dev, but years passed, and I realized that I just don’t like the actual video game industry and new games as much as the old generation of games. I think it is important that new generations that didn’t experience the 2D era, could play new games inspired in the old games. So I aspired to be a pixel artist to create my game and share a bit of my experiences that I had by playing the games I played as a Kid.
2. How long have you been creating art?
9 Years, but 5 years as pixel artist.
3. What advice would you give to new artists?
No matter how skilled you are, what it matters is that you love what you do and do your best. And please invest in a good chair.
4. Goals for 2023?
My goals for 2023 are to release the first demo of my game Deathrosa, a game inspired in Earthbound, Yume Nikki Undertale, Touhou and silent hill 3 and release a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.
5. Where can people support your work?
