Changing Perspectives With Fez: New 2D/3D Game

Friday, April 4th, 2008

I don’t even know if there is a name for this concept of perspective, but “the other kind of 3D” is what I can come up with right now. The new game FEZ is a 2D-Jump ‘n Run game with a twist: a third dimension can be used to alter the 2D plane. But really, it’s hard to put into words so check out this amazing video demonstration:

Fez was a finalist at the 10th Annual Independent Games Festival, along with the wonderful Crayon Physics Deluxe that I can’t believe I’ve never presented here.

freshome features a beautiful architectural feat by Netherlands-based Zecc: the interior redesign of a church into a modern home. Now I’m not much of a church-goer (quite the opposite, actually), but I certainly wouldn’t mind setting foot in this one.

The Problem With Pictograms…

Sunday, January 13th, 2008

The Problem With Pictograms…is that, when not thought out perfectly, they are open to interpretation. In the case of safety signs, the outcome can be disastrous. safenow.org demonstrates this wonderfully in a hilarious parody of our fear-mongering friends at US Homeland Security. Remember: If you are sprayed with an unknown substance, stand and think about it instead of seeing a doctor.

Conference Call From Buzzword Hell

Friday, October 5th, 2007

Joe the Peacock has had a hard day. Why? Because he had a conference with a potential client that seems very excited to get into this whole Web2.0 stuff.
One of many fun quotes:
