"Moosebox," a modern 8-bit adventure

Do you remember the old 8-bit style games like "Donkey Kong" and "Mario Bros"? Well, these days you might not, that was a long time ago. But this is a fun homage to those times, but with an updated, bouncy style that better suits those prehistoric video games than the usual generic arcade background music that they invariably used.

All right, for all you geniuses out there, it isn't actually 8-bit. It's a lot better and more detailed than 8-bit ever was. Let's just call it pixelated and call it even. But it has the retro-style of those times, at least.

Here, we have a very enthusiastic moose and his inseparable sidekick, a yellow cat. Their mission? To rescue Princess Burger from the evil clutches of a Hipster Octopus.

Now, those Hipster Octopi are not to be fooled with, but our dynamic duo is up to the job.

The short film was created by Mike Scott for the Nickelodeon International Animated Shorts Program 2013.
