Orb-tacular Pixel Junk

The Pixel Junk series from Q-Games has been a consistently artistic venture since their first Monsters edition, through Eden, and now with the impending release of Shooter. Sitting in on a localized presentation with the primary artist of Eden was like watching a Japanese Hippy Mystic hold court over a kingdom of geeks while talking about Rorschach, dripping oils, and spaced out sea life.

With Shooter, Q-Games will be adding High Frequency Bandwidth as the soundtrack creator. Comprised of one half of The Orb, good things can be counted on for the music propulsion of this fluid simulation showcase.

Fatale: Audio Only Trailer

In what can only be called a leveling of the playing field when it comes to video game trailers, Tale of tales has released an audio only trailer for their forthcoming game "Fatale":

"One of the cornerstones of our approach to design for interactive entertainment, is that all elements in the production are of equal importance," says the company's co-founders and designers Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn. "We do not single out any element above any other: 3D artwork, animation, interaction, text, sound and music all contribute in equal parts to the multi-sensory experience."

Thank goodness for the sanity of some people.
(although, can that truly be said after hearing the contents of the trailer?)

Great stuff, decide for yourselves!
