Riot Simulator Released

by René

Der Aufstand-Simulator Riot – Civil Unrest von Leonard Menchiari wurde vor ein paar Tagen veröffentlicht, leider nur Win. Hier neuer Trailer und Gameplay-Video:

Corruption, persecution, racial tension, financial inequality… Civil conflict across the globe has exploded. As inequality tears the very fabric of society the discontentment of the masses manifests itself in violent public disturbances and disorder.

RIOT – Civil Unrest is a simulation video game that recreates some of the world’s infamous riots. Campaigns include: The Italian NoTav opposition to a planned high-speed rail link between Turin and Lyon; The Arab Spring uprising in Egypt; Indignados, the anti-austerity protests in Spain; and Keratea, the landfill fuelled struggle against the government in crisis-racked Greece. In addition, there are over 30 single scenarios including London in the UK and Oakland in the USA.

RIOT – Civil Unrest’s creator, Leonard Menchiari, experienced rioting first-hand at the NoTAV protests in Italy. He created the game to tell the stories and express the emotions felt during these clashes. What triggers the anger and aggression? Often outnumbered, what does a police officer endure during the conflict?

RIOT – Civil Unrest features Leonard Menchiari’s unique and beautiful pixel art. The Bologna-based development team worked hard on the crowd behaviour. Each individual character has its own artificial intelligence and personal space that gives the overall crowd mass very realistic and fluid movement.

15 Out-of-Context Simpsons Screens That Perfectly Describe Movies/TV

If you've been on Twitter long enough, there's a good chance that you've run across one of Simpsons Films tweets on your timeline. You know the ones -- they take random screencaps of Simpsons episodes and use them to simultaneously parody and somehow also accurately describe popular movies. It's hard to figure out why The Simpsons can seemingly apply to almost any concept or plot imaginable, so I contacted the person behind Simpsons Films for answers.

"I think the sheer longevity of the show helps; the more varied situations there are, the more likely they'll line up with something else," Simpsons Films said over Twitter DM. They wished to remain anonymous. "That, plus the creativity and artistry of the animation in the earlier years led to some very cinematic moments and direction which doesn't really happen with the modern episodes."

Simpsons Films told me that they make ample use of the magical screencap emporium Frinkiac whenever inspiration strikes, though they have accepted occasional submissions from fellow fans. At just over 400 tweets at the time of this writing, the account has struck gold an impressive amount of time in its yearlong lifespan. I collected some of my favorite tweets below:

A Mega”Bite” of Storage!

by Sarang Sheth

Don’t worry, these animals won’t bite! Well, actually, they will… but that’s why they’re so incredibly useful. AniBite turns nature’s fiercest predators into adorably innovative multi-purpose clips that grip and hold everything from stationery, to EDC, to toiletries.

Designed to replace hooks, hangers, and stands with something more quirky and characteristic, AniBite’s series of one-touch clips can be placed anywhere and can hold pretty much anything. Made in three variants, a bear, a leopard, and a wolf (or as I call it, direwolf), the AniBite can hold up to 300 grams (almost 9 times its weight). Just lift the head back and place your item between the jaws before pushing the head down again. AniBites can hold your toothbrush (in both vertical and horizontal ways), razor, or even stationery on your desk. Use it as an innovative spectacle-holder beside your bed, or even for your keys right near the door… or push your creative limits and have these animals manage your cables for you!

The AniBite is made from sanitary and non-toxic plastics like PETG and PCTG, and comes with a PU Gel adhesion surface on the back that can attach to pretty much any flat (or even mildly textured) surface without leaving any marks. When the adhesion goes weak, all you have to do is clean the back with water and it’s good as new! The design is practical and child-friendly with blunted teeth that won’t pierce or poke.

Ideal for the nature lover as well as the design lover, these little multi-purpose hang-clips are utilitarian, eye-catching, and go right into our hall of quirky fame! Why hang real animal heads on your wall when you could have these functional, adorable miniatures instead?

Please join us in welcoming the newest member of the Department of Astonishing Optical Illusions: Keene, NH-based tattoo artist Jesse Rix, who creates surreal, trompe-l'œil-style tattoos that turn his clients into living optical illusions.

“Skillfully composed of fine lines and filled in with lifelike color, each tattoo’s style is rooted in realism. The subject matter, however, is entirely surreal. As hexagons, cubes, and bricks of skin are “removed,” unique spectacles—including galactic battles, cosmic portraits, geometric patterns, and under-the-sea scenery—emerge. To “reveal” these unexpected images from below the surface of the skin, Rix plays with perspective, experiments with light, and alters dimensionality.”

Follow Jesse Rix on Instagram or Facebook to check out many more of his awesome custom tattoos.

Dan Harmon: Every Story is the Same

by René
harmon

Hübscher Clip über Dan Harmons Variation von Joseph Campbells Heldenreise, die er zu einer zirkulären Storytelling-Theorie verdichtet:

Snip von AV-Club:

The theory boils down to two sentences: 1) A character is in a zone of comfort, 2) but they want something. 3) They enter an unfamiliar situation, 4) adapt to it, 5) get what they wanted, 6) pay a heavy price for it, 7) then return to their familiar situation, 8) having changed. Harmon plots those eight points along the quadrants of a circle, but then overlays that circle with great dualities like life and death, consciousness and unconsciousness, and order and chaos, and finds within that very literal geometry storytelling needs, like internal and external conflict.
