How Is This 8-Bit Blade Runner Game Not Actually Real?

If you love Blade Runner (and how could you not), you've just got to have a soft-spot for old-school games (and how could you not). This little masterpiece proves that they're two great tastes that taste great together.

Whipped up for 8-Bit Cinema by the folks who brought you 8-Bit Star Trek, this isometric Blade Runner looks like a blast. The only bummer is that you can't actually play it. But maybe, with some luck, an 8-bit madman will throw together something playable before 2019. Until then, we'll just have to dream.

I'm usually not one to complain about this, but I guess it had to happen sooner or later:
WHY ARE ALL PIXEL ART STYLE IMAGES AND VIDEOS CALLED "8-BIT" THESE DAYS!?

Yes, it's entirely possible that this video was indeed rendered at ab 8-bit color depth. However, it's more likely this is in fact something like 32-bit.

Also, if we're simply talking about the fact that it looks like an old video game... 8-bit video games never looked like this. This looks more like a 16-bit video game.
