What 3D Video Games Would Look Like As 2D Platformers

The Witcher 3, Battlefield 1 and Fallout 4 are video games that take place in enormous 3D spaces. But let's imagine, for a second, they (and a load of other big modern games) were actually quaint little 2D (or 2.5D) platformers instead.

Every screenshot you see here has been curated by the Pseudoscroller Parlour, a project where video game screenshot artists share "attempts by screenshotters to transform fully rendered and explorable 3D game environments into dimensionally restricted but esthetically pleasing pockets of gaming bliss".

If these were mobile or $10 Steam spin-offs I would play all of these.

You can see the whole group here, but there's a selection of some of the best of it here.

    The Catalyst one makes me wish the excellent iPad Mirror's Edge game was still functional. Quite possibly the best actual Mirror's Edge game.

    The Fallout and The Witcher games... give them to me... give them to me now.

    I never knew I wanted a 2d sidescrolling fallout until right goddamn now.

    Ok, I want all of those games.

    On my Switch.

    Please.

    Ever since I played the first Trine game I have wanted a new Super Star Wars series from those guys.
