Winterbells
December 8, 2006 2:44 PM   Subscribe

It's Flash Friday, but surprisingly no one's mentioned this yet. Since you seem to be fans of Orisinal's work, I thought it prudent to point out that he's put up a new game just in time for the holidays. So, let's go play some Winterbells, shall we?

It makes me sad when the little bunny falls from so high up - cute little ears flapping in the wind, cute little eyes peering below, hurling toward instant splattification.

though I'd like to see the splat, I admit. Not orisinal style i guess.

I only had about 55,000 when my admittedly sub-standard mousing skills failed me.

(Cool art style, too.)

Thanks for reminding me that Orisinal exists. The combination of charming graphics, beautiful music, and ridiculously simple, twitchy flash action never ceases to amuse me.

And yeah, I feel a bit sorry for the bunny when he falls.

That is one cute game, thanks!

Is 592,600 good? It's a pretty fun game. So simple, yet so tasty.

I can't get past the space station. Any ideas?

Not really. I scored one brazillion.

Everytime I see this work, I get a renewed sense of faith about the internet in general. Just beautiful.

can anyone identify the musical score? sounds like a version of Canon in D major, but I'd love to know the particulars...
posted by stuehler at 5:04 PM on December 8, 2006


Canon in D is used with the piggies who say "Mee."

But it sounds like the same chord progression with a different melody.

Scored over 5 million. Whatevs, I was barely trying.

kernel panic at a billion. anyone else get that?

At two billion, the bunny turns into Mothra.

Thanks so much for reminding me to check in on dear Orsinal, even though I apparently currently possess the mousing skills of a St. Vitus dance victim.

My favorite Orsinal games are It Takes Two, Among the Clouds, and the stunning High Delivery.

In addition to having a subtle and beautiful design aesthetic, if this interview is any indication, Ferry Halim is also modest, funny, and kind, just as you'd expect of a man who spends so much of his time contemplating bunnies and kittens. I wish I could thank him for making the beautiful things he does and offering them freely with minimal advertisement with a fistful of roses on a hot air balloon ride, but perhaps I'll just ask for some of his merchandise for Christmas instead. Thanks again, revmitcz.
