Recently on Offworld we had a mini-#musicmonday as French chiptuner Je Deviens DJ en 3 Jours assembled friends to create Da Chip! — a free compilation album of Daft Punk covers done on “vintage game systems”, while another scenester, Dr. Zilog, put together an 8-bit cover of Animal Collective’s certifiable hipster hit My Girls, with a low-res filtered version of the video to match (and a bonus MGMT cover, to boot).
Elsewhere we saw Crayon Physics creator Petri Purho debut his first entry into the relaunched Experimental Gameplay Project with Post I.T. Shooter (above) — an IT Crowd-referencing low-res shooter rendered entirely in faux-hand-animated Post-It Notes, completing the game -> Post-It animation -> game circle.
Finally we watched an indescribable video telling the orgasmic, ultra violent history of videogames, saw James Barnett — the artist behind the previously featured ‘fauxvist’ paintings that made Matisse-ian landscapes of Fallout 3, Half-Life and Team Fortress — offer prints and originals for sale, took a last look at the Ghostbusters content coming to LittleBigPlanet, and our ‘one shot’s for the day: Capcom’s Darkstalkers in glorious Paul Robertson pixels, and Bit.Trip mascot Commander Video, Meat Boy style.
