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. Yes, if you’ve ever wanted to know what you would look like if you lived inside of Zelda or Metroid, this is your chance.
The Interstellar Selfie Station only works in-browser right now, but it’s coming to iOS and Android doodads next year.
