A Few Things #12

Here are a few things that I found interesting this week:

Machine by XKCD

Machine is a collaborative interactive where you help build a machine that moves colored balls from point A to point B. Once you have completed your task, you can take a look at the machines that others have built. It’s really neat and an interesting change of pace for XKCD.

Africa by Toto but its played on instruments in Majora’s Mask by bigfatfrown

I really like YouTube, but sometimes I get nostalgic for the simpler, amateur past. This video is only two years old, but it feels like one from an earlier era of YouTube.

Truncate: A word-based strategy game

This one took some time to understand, but it’s a fun little combat-style word game. It’s a challenging and refreshing alternative to more traditional word games.


I have a soft spot for all Flash games, and I have fond memories of playing this one on (RIP). It’s a simple infinite runner game, but the artistic style and the feel set it apart. See if you can beat 2000 meters.
