Four Potential Logo Designs Revealed for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

tokyo2020-olympics

The Emblems Selection Committee have revealed four sets of potential logos for the 2020 Olympics, and Paralympic Games, in Tokyo. You may recall the plagiarism controversy last year regarding the original logo designed by Kenjiro Sano. Amid allegations that Sano copied Belgian designer Olivier Debie, the committee axed Sano’s design. The committee then launched a public design competition to find an appropriate replacement, and it appears the final decision is close.

The designs are being kept anonymous at this point as the public is now invited to share their opinions and vote for their favourite design. Have a look at all the final logo designs below!

David OReilly’s New Game “Everything” Allows You To Play as Anything

David-OReilly-everything-game

Animator David OReilly is perhaps best known for creating the video game in Spike Jonze’s film “Her”, and his strangely meditative non-game “Mountain”.

His new game “Everything”, releasing on PS4, is about as ambitious as a concept could possibly be. Every single thing in the game is a playable character, “there is no distinction between you and the world”. So you could control the planet, or a continent on the planet, or a tree on the continent, or a bird in the tree, or bug, or a blade of grass.

As a conventional video game, it honestly looks extremely boring. As an art piece or as experience, I feel like there’s the potential for something kind of profound — especially if people have the ability to interact with the environment at the same time. Like if I was controlling a dog, and I knew that every flea on the dog was potentially another person, and every grain of sand on the beach I was running along, all of those could be different people. And someone else was controlling the whole island, and the sun, and the entire galaxy. If you could quickly and seamlessly move from a micro to a macro viewpoint I feel like that could be something really interesting.

Have a look at the actual gameplay video below, maybe you’ll see what I mean.
