Red Bull Music Academy has produced a fantastic documentary series called “Diggin’ In The Carts” about the secret history of Japanese video game music. Watch parts 1 and 2 below!
I am not a gamer by any stretch of the imagination but I do like puzzles. A few years ago a Danish publisher called Playdead released an indie puzzle game called “Limbo” that completely blew my mind. It was kinda dark, with beautifully stylized animation, and insanely difficult puzzles. The game really struck a chord, won all kinds of awards, and scored 10/10 on many sites. (If you have an iPad, you should get this game for your next flight.)
Playdead has just released a trailer for their new game “Inside” and it looks spectacular. I probably won’t post about video games too often but this is a work of art. I kinda wish it was a movie; I don’t even own an Xbox. Watch the trailer below.
Imagine a daily comic strip and a video game had a baby. I would name that baby Flying Pizza Kitty. Yet another genius creation by Ben. Love the movie references! Maybe animated gifs will make a comeback? If the images are a tiny bit blurry it’s because I blew them up to 500 wide, sorry but I gotta keep this place looking tidy. No shoes on the carpet!
