Retro Game Crunch is an interesting project, that can be backed on Kickstarter. It’s for people who a) love retro-styled games and/or b) like to influence the game design process. And have six instead of just one game!

The team around the Retro Game Crunch wants to make a new game every month. The people who back, can give the theme / topic of the new game to make – and they can debate and make critics. In order to get something great done. In the end there hopefully will be six nice looking fun-arcade games.

Well, at the Kickstarter page, the game creators say with a smile, that “biggest challenge will be burnout”. They “promise to take regular breaks, drink plenty of water, and remain functioning members of society.” So stress or back – in the end enjoy!

Dear Esteban

Here is another very cool entry of the Fuck this Jam – GameJam. It is a “parody” of the not-game Dear Esther. Not much than a landscape and some voices that are played while walking around in the landscape. But somehow the mixture is interesting and absurd – like spring highlands meets an abandoned cyberpunk past. Maybe stuff to build upon…? Read more at Rock Paper Shotgun or download the game.

yatta by maadonna

Yatta! is the name if an online net-art application, that bridges pixel art, netart and glitch aesthetics. Users drag and drop any image to the browser. That image then is converted into icons, like emoticons, game characters, animated bubbles or blinking palettes. Straight forward and invites to experimentation. This project was made by “Maadonna“, which seems to be a collaboration between Emilio Gomariz and Kim Asendorf. (via)

The people around the Creative-Applications blog want to do a niftly project, that circles around – guess! – art, technology and design. Their planned HOLO Magazine will be a full featured print magazine, that should come two times a year. It will me “more like a book, than a magazine“. The project looks very fine. Just thank you guy for caring about the new media art scene so much! Support them on Kickstarter.

Today I came across the website from E-Waste Workshop. The people there are about media-art strategies and electronic waste. The website features an interesting blog with contents, that circle around upcycling, circuit-bending, modifications of existing e-waste and things like that. I post here one example-video from the blog – showing how to make a small drawing machine out of a floppy-drive with the help of a Arduino-controller.

Lux is an animation short movie. It’s the graduation work from Juliette Oberndorfer. The topic of the movie is sort of “abstract” – but the good feel for the colors used alone is worth watching it. (via)

Animation artist Arnaud Jourdain made high-resolution images from graffiti in Paris over a time-period of five years. He then used this material to not only make some interesting animation movies. The best part is the “3d view” of the single artwork-layers. A little bit like an “archeology of graffiti”. Enjoy! (via)
