Here are some beautiful and / or weird things I have come across lately. They have practically no direct relationship to games, but I think it is important to be open to impressions from everywhere, to be a well-rounded person.

  • The Absolute Elsewhere is a marvelous catalogue of fantastic, visionary, and esoteric literature.
  • White Vibes is a beautiful interactive… thing… with many strange ideas which could easily be used in games. I’d love to work on more weird and surreal things like this.
  • White Vibes reminds me a little bit of the fantastic work of the Quay brothers. Perhaps it’s the sound.
  • And while we’re on the topic of off-beat animation, have a look at the website of JoJo In The Stars, a beautiful black and white animated movie.
  • The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide To Eccentric & Discredited Diseases is a very imaginative work. You can find out how it was made here.
  • If you like retro-futurism from the 60s, you’re sure to love this.
  • Snow Blossom House is a gallery of links to interesting digital or interactive erotic / pornographic works, often hentai or hentai-inspired. Definitely not work safe.

    Lovely, cute, queer, angry and mischievous KiSS dolls unite. Squidmen and women of hentai games join your brothers and sisters. Follow the way of the strawberries. To play is the answer. To change clothes is the method. Foreplay ist alles. To transgender, to overlay, to uncover is the tease. Welcome to Snow Blossom House.

  • Apartment is a strange site. Type in a sentence, and it generates the floor plan of an apartment (which you can see in 3D if you have a PC), while your words float around in the various rooms. It’s quite intriguing.
