I'd not heard a single word about LambdaMu's Pixel People until Chillingo sent word that the game was coming soon to iOS this afternoon. Now I'm completely charmed.

The game involves rebuilding the human race from scratch using a series of carbon copy clones and the profession-mapped genes of folks that bought it in the big one. There are 150 Pixel People to create, 80 hidden animals to serve as pets (and probably food, knowing humanity), all rendered in that lovely retro 8-bit style the kids these days go crazy for.

Will Pixel People's gameplay proper break the spell cast over me by the trailer? There's only one way to find out—I must wait for this "soon" they speak of. So mysterious.
