…It’s TGI Friday: Today I Die?

Today I Die

Today I Die is the latest game from Daniel Benmergui (the mind behind I Wish I Were The Moon) and it’s a beautiful, semi-challenging puzzle game that manages to tell a story using less than 25 words and graphics that Atari could have rendered.

Don’t get me wrong though; the game is fun and fantastic, and I definitely recommend you give it a go.

…Nike makes SB Dunk tributes?

Nike’s SB line of skate shoes are often some of the most creative tributes to grace your feet.

Nike Dunk SB 720 Degrees

First, there’s the Nike Dunk SB “720 Degrees”. Inspired by the first skateboarding arcade game, Atari’s 720 Degrees, these kicks feature a perfect match to the game’s color scheme, and will definitely make you stand out at the next arcade competition.

Nike Dunk SB Newcastle Brown Ale

Then, there’s the Nike Dunk SB “Newcastle Brown Ale”. Inspired by the delicious brown ale out of Newcastle, England, these kicks feature a hoppy style that is perfect for your next beer fest.

Regardless of your style, there’s no doubting the creativity that goes into a mash-up like this; and I commend Nike for thinking outside the box when is comes to design.

…TriPong lets three play?

TriPong

Secil Boyd invented a sport called TriPong that pits three players against each other in a game similar to Ping Pong. The table features Plexiglas nets, and each player has a neutral zone and a scoring zone. The game is designed to promote teamwork, as each player starts out with one point and it takes three points to win. I wonder if Atari can make a game out of this one.
