8-bit garage

Bud Melvin - "Nude Vows"
Sometimes, people take the liberty of exciting every old-school gamer by muralizing their garage entrance. I am completely and totally in support of this and, needless to say, driving by this Pac-Man mural every day keeps me pretty entertained. Keep an eye out for street art. Finding little gems like this make driving to work seem far less mundane, and may even keep that third-cup-of-coffee craving at bay. ... for a while longer.

Editor's note: Enjoy the Nuevo Mexicano chiptune banjo-pop of Bud Melvin below.

Webgame Wednesday: Ice Beak

It's getting a touch chilly outside, don't you think? Winter is definitely in the air. So why not stay inside and play some wintery games? I suggest trying your hand at Ice Beak. This pleasingly 8-bit scroll-and-shoot puts you in the role of an ice-blasting bird navigating a lava-filled maze. There's a bit of puzzle solving to be had as well, since you must use your ice abilities to their best advantage to navigate the trap-filled maze in which you find yourself. Just remember to keep your cool.

Movies at Fab Lab Tonight: 8 BIT and Taian Lu @ 8:30 p.m.

We wrote about Fab Lab ABQ here (and here) in April. Tonight they’re hosting Modern World Movie Night. Why? “By exposing viewers to somewhat obscure films that are not easily found except in the Fine Art world, we can open up a larger discussion about how technology and its advances affect us as artists and makers here in Albuquerque and how we are connected to the world at large.” Films include Martin Ramocki’s celebrated 8 BIT and Mathieu Borysevicz’s Taian Lu.

8-Bit Invasion

In Patrick Jean's Pixels, New York gets the 8-bit jihad treatment, apparently over the junking of the last (? I like to think so) CRT television in the city. Space Invaders, Frogger, and Tetris all make an appearance. Especially nice is seeing Donkey Kong up where he always belonged, atop the Empire State Building chucking barrels at pedestrians.

A brief interview with the director popped up on Motionographer today.
