Fans of retro video games have found a variety of¬†ways to pay tribute to legendary 8-bit classics, from Google’s awesome Pacman anniversary homepage to hardcore nerds going as far as getting tattoos of their favorite game characters. It was only a matter of time until someone came up with an idea as amazing as this one…
In the city of Stockholm, Sweden, an entire¬†subway station has been redecorated to look like the scenery from the most¬†famous arcade¬†games. The existing tiles were replaced with new ones to form a giant mosaic of game characters and landscapes. The tiles perfectly simulate an 8-bit graphic design, so¬†it looks like you’re acttualy¬†in the land of Super Mario, surrounded by pipes, or run into Pacman trying to escape from Blinky, Inky, Pinky, and Clyde.
Making the subway look like every geek gamers paradise was indeed an original way to revitalize what had previously been just another dreary looking building. For more awesome 8-bit art, check out these 8 bit illustrations.
