I'm big into pixel art, but I can't quite figure out how to set Affinity Photo up to do pixel art. Can anybody help?

Hi Ancestyr,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

There's not much to set up really. Just create a document with the dimensions you want and use the Pixel Tool to draw on it. You can access it clicking the small grey triangle on the Paint Brush Tool to display a pop-up with additional tool one of them the Pixel Tool (see screenshot below for reference). Use the context toolbar, right above the work area to set the size and other attributes of the tool as you see fit.

Next time you use the Tool Panel, the Pixel tool should be the default icon at that position.
