Do you like 8-bit graphics? Jokes? Mudkipz? Then you'll ♥ Pixel Monsters.

Pixel Monsters is a comic-y book that needs your help getting published. The book contains monsters, rhymes, and corny things, with an aesthetic that references an old-school vidjagame [being played through illegal means on a PC via emulator]. One could call it an index of monstérs. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's not, sometimes it's clever, sometimes it's cute, and sometimes it's just awful. 

  • There is a "create your own monster" section where readers can exercise their own creativity. Additionally, the section will feature YOUR as well as your fellow backers' monsters! Use this optional template and start creating! See $2 reward for more details. 
  • ♪ The book encourages readers to make up their own melodies as they read, or rather, sing ♪
  • The book aims to give filthy scrub noobs a familiarity with some basic file extensions such as .png and .txt, and other computer stuff, like how electronic mail really works by way of 8-bit sky whales.
