Show Your Sweetheart You Care, the 8-Bit Way

Posted by Zach Kaplan

Go retro this Valentine's Day with these awesome printable cards

Nothing says "I love you" like a dose of romantically themed nostalgia. That's why shop owner Kirakards of handmade and vintage online shop Etsy has created an assortment of 8-bit themed Valentine's Day cards, ranging from a sentimental Kirby sighing "Dreamland would be a nightmare if you are not here with me," to the more direct Donkey Kong and his statement that "Nothing will stop me until I'm there with you." Even the Space Invaders make an appearance, synchronising into the shape of a heart. Aww.

There are plenty of designs in the shop, so head over and check them out. It's enough to warm any retro gamer's heart on this most heart-warming of days.
