  • Sadly, Raquel Meyers won't be at this weekend's Blip Festival in New York (Wired reports due to passport issues), but her music videos are worth checking out.

Imagine my encouragement when I found that out and took a look at the code for myself, since I admired the creators of the game for their ability to evoke a mood and tell a story with very few words or human characters
