"clickable cool" is my new phrase for the week :)

Cool music. Hasn't this been in development for quite a while, though? I'm sure I saw that ALIEN T-REX! on the front page ages ago. (I never forget a good tyrannosaurus.) I think my favorite Flash part of the site is the "case" it sits in, its texture, the holes where the music gets out, and the hypnotic swirling spirals. Nice.

Top marks for style and design sensibility, but not much for progress -- even the art from the trailer is mostly the same as what appears elsewhere in the main site. And I got a definite "Jane Jetson with too many botox injections" vibe from the character -- her expression doesn't change, she just snaps through a couple of rigid movements. I think this is a portfolio piece, really.
