Silk 2

Silk 2 — Interactive Generative Art

Back in 2011, we told you about Silk — an experimental project in generative art by Yuri Vishnevsky. It was a stunning example of what could be achieved using HTML5’s <canvas> element and back then, as I stood in awe, I always wondered what could be achieved had this been implemented natively on iOS. Unfortunately, I somehow lost track of the project up until a few days ago, when Devin, one of our regular readers, emailed us about Silk 2...

Kentucky Route Zero Act III

Kentucky Route Zero(henceforth KRZ) by Cardboard Computer is an insanely great looking point and click adventure (this is an understatement) game. They should have just called it “screenshot as wallpaper: the official game” because it is visually that good. I reviewed Act I and II almost a year ago and Act III finally released last week. Conway has a flashback to a conversation with Lysette in the beginning of this episode. He recollects an old memory that has stuck with...
