Countless people have created homes and lives for themselves in online worlds like Second Life and mentally moved into their virtual cribs. It’s not the craziest thing in the world, because who would want to focus on their own shabby digs rather than bask in the idealized version that exists online? Well, for those of us who don’t have to time to create elaborate digital spaces for ourselves can go a simpler route using The Joint.
Pixel art forum The Pixel Joint created The Joint for digital artists to share their designs, which are combined with other contributions to create multiroom apartments that have a sea monster in one room and a ski slope in the next, a jungle in another, with an isolation chamber next door. There is no limit or end to the kinds of environments you can create using that simple yet powerful tool, the pixel.
If you’re thinking, “What the hell is pixel art?” have a look here. Below, see a few more pixel domiciles from The Joint.
