40 Years of Iconic Album Covers in Less Than 4 Minutes

In a blast of visual music history, the video Dis COVERS traverses the terrains of widely recognizable album covers from 1960 to 1999. A more conventional approach to a project like this might be to try and cram in as many covers as possible in as short a time as possible, but Korean animator Gim Bo-seong made the much more interesting choice to occasionally dwell and linger on some covers, allowing for some seriously cool transitions and making a more appealing clip overall.

Persist: A Platformer Where You Have to Earn Your Forgiveness

Is forgiveness given or earned? Persist has no qualms about which side of the debate it falls on–this short platformer by AdventureIslands tells the story of an unknown person setting out to beg forgiveness from a goddess for some past sin…but the goddess has no interest in forgiving him. Your avatar must swim through lakes and leap over lava to reach her, but the closer he draws, the angrier the goddess becomes, removing his limbs and associated abilities. For example, the first thing to go is your arms, which prevents you from swimming. Anger her enough and she has no problems erasing you from existence entirely. More…

“In a Clear Mind” Takes a Dive Through Our Imaginations

The first 15 seconds of this collaboration between Ofra Kobliner and David Ben Eli may seem unassuming and even amateurish, but when In a Clear Mind gets going you’ll realize it’s quite imaginative–and the simple, line-drawn black-and-white style is literally just the surface. The protagonist dives into a world of a more photorealistic daydreamscape, appearing to the viewer in hints and peeks as part of a swimmer’s wake. It’s a hint at the worlds of fantasy that lie just below the facade of the everyday. More…
