It’s been a tradition for nearly three-and-a-half centuries, so it was a great honor for iam8bit to produce the “347th Annual Tamriel Beer Garden”. Truthfully, though – it’s a fabrication, devised as a community event to celebrate Elder Scrolls Online (you *almost* believed us!).

DuckTales has a special place in the hearts of an entire generation. The original game was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989, but interest never waned. And that interest was our ultimate weapon! At the end of the Capcom panel at Penny Arcade Expo in Boston, the lights dimmed, the trailer rolled, but it was all a gigantic fake-out, leading fans to believe that it was a Lord of the Rings-style announcement.

A globe-trotting deviation for the annual iam8bit exhibition, “ich bin 8-bit” takes the idea of the “pixel” as the ultimate paintbrush and uses an entire gallery as its canvas. Hosted by Picto Plasma, an internationally-renowned design conference, and neurotitan gallery in March 2009 in Berlin, Germany, the show encompassed a massive installation of 15,000+ Post-It notes designed by Jude Buffum.

On the edge of Boston’s waterfront, a massive 12,000 sq. ft., out-of-season cruise terminal was transformed into a level from Bethesda’s sci-fi shooter, BRINK. The entire production played to this mass transit theme — invitations were distributed in the form of “boarding passes”;

In honor of The Legend of Zelda’s 25th Anniversary, Nintendo asked iam8bit to divise a proper tribute to the game… in the form of a conference room in their Redwood City branch.

In honor of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Nintendo wanted to do something special for fans. Luckily, we’re fans ourselves, so we spared no detail to create a real-life, fully operational replica of Luigi’s ghost-sucking contraption, the “Poltergust 5000.” Crafted in collaboration with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, this is a replica like no other: hand-sculpted, meticulously assembled, and simply a joy to strap on your back.
