Christine Love is best known for her imaginative indie gem Analogue: A Hate Story, a kind of visual novel set aboard a Korean generation ship. Well, until now. Her new project, the Interstellar Selfie Station, is not a game, but rather, a program that syncs with your webcam and lets you take selfies in the pixelated style and color palette of your favorite 8-bit games.

The Interstellar Selfie Station only works in-browser right now, but it’s coming to iOS and Android doodads next year.
