Project AltEx: Power in Pixels

Posted on 18/10/2017

Photographs are powerful. They let us see into the past, remember special moments and inspire us to do more. They also give us a chance to look at some of the most badass video games on the market - from Horizon: Zero Dawn to Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice - and gawk in amazement at incredible vistas, impossible skylines and our favourite characters in action - with only a few 1s and 0s to make it all happen.


What is it?

Well, we love 1s and 0s at Hype Energy, and we especially love them on our Altex.Art Instagram channel. We created Project Altex to share our love of video game photography with all our gaming fans, with in-game shots taken by professional visual artists from around the world to truly leave you wondering what a pixel can do. 


What’s more, we don’t just share captures from the best online digital photographers, we feature breathtaking photos from all our fans and the entire gaming community. All you have to do is include #Altex in your description, and we pick our favourite photo every day to feature on our channel.


Any platform. Any game. All you need is a great photo and you can be featured. Take a look below to see just a few of our favourites since we started the channel.



As much as we love video game visuals at Altex.Art, we also love giveaways. We run giveaways on a regular basis to share our love with the gaming community and give something back to everyone who takes part in Project Altex. Make sure to follow us and stay tuned for our next giveaway!
