Iji is not low resolution. It runs in 800x600 from what I remember which is far higher than games of the late 80's. It's not very retro at all. However Daniel Remar's later game Muri certainly goes all the way in simulating the low resolution and indexed palette of DOS games of that era.

I read in December's (2011) national geographic the the King James Bible was written in a style old even by the early 1600's standards. Might be an example

"Retro" does not mean "old". "Retro" means imitating old styles. There's nothing "faux" about it.

Indeed, what seems to be described in this article is just good old ordinary retro.

Retro can also refer to the old things themselves. The distinction is a necessary one.
