This fun animation is by Patric Jean and shows New York under attack from a slew of classic 8-bit characters being destroyed bit by bit, thanks to some truly stunning special effects. I assume using something like Maya for modeling and effects. Maybe After Effects or Maya again for compositing and match moving.
Might be worth pointing out there's no such thing as an 8-bit pixel. Technically speaking those are voxels.
My favorite part is when the Tetris blocks level buildings one row at a time.
