8-Bit NYC

Imagine New York City as an adventure-scape of the 8-bit world from your old-school Nintendo days.

MIT alum, Brett Camper puts the pixel treatment on a Google Map of the 5 boroughs of New York in this incredible mashup. Parks, water, “grasslands” and roads take on such a blocky NES map look of  RPGs of yesteryear, you’ll be apt to assemble a team of adventurers and storm the island smiting blobs and plundering riches.

Zoom, pan and explore NYC in low fidelity right here!
