In this epic pixel art exhibition, 30 artists from around the world were tasked with creating the concept and artwork for their dream videogame vision. All of these imagined levels are being turned into a fully playable platformer game, brought to life by the Light Grey Art Lab team.

The Dream Arcade games take viewers on a journey through time- hunting for clues, traversing through landscapes, and discovering new places and environments. The levels include lost islands of the sky, underground tunnels, abandoned houses, ghost-filled campsites and more! Players will have a chance to fight off enemies, complete jumping puzzles, find secret pathways, and collect treasures, all while immersed in the artist’s vision and original artwork.
