NES games are already pretty minimalist thanks to the limitations of the hardware, but artist Ty Lettau takes things a step farther with his new image series. Lettau takes classic games — from Blades of Steel to The Legend of Zelda — and strips them down to the bare minimum, creating images that are instantly recognizable despite being little more than a bunch of blocks. The whole series has a sort of Sword & Sworcery feel, and if you're really into them you can grab prints for some of the games at Society6.
