Do they all resize your browser for you or just the first one?

everyone hates having their browsers resized by pixel art webpages.

This is the kind of thing I'd wallpaper my rec room with if I had one. So many neat little things to discover. I especially liked the apple orchard and the Snow White parade. Thanks goodnewsfortheinsane!

I feel 6 years old again. Can someone get me this Lego set for Christmas?

Pshht, but can he do it in two point perspective rather than isometric?

I mean... Wow. That's huge. I'll need some time here...

If this artwork is from mainland China (as I assume), I am struck by how it is a reiteration of all that was hella cool innovation from the late 20th century USA . . . here's hoping we in the US can continue to be frontrunners in this area.

Huh. Taiwan has the space shuttle now.

Also, some motorists are presumably exchanging insurance info after a rear-ender, while in the opposite lane a violent police chase is underway.

And I wonder what "services" the lady in the pink cabin offers...

I'm totally rooting for the blue football side btw, that goalie is well too far from his line.

I would've hidden a mugging or some senseless murder in there somewhere.

of course, I have issues so....

This is (still) very cool and all, but I'd rather see credit where credit's due. Lovepixel's responsible for this amazing piece, if I'm not mistaken. (The original.) The Digg discussion over here also has lots of other sites to explore, as well as zips and stuff (unless they've been taken down).

More than anything, I'm reminded of Syndicate. I'm not sure I have the patience to go looking for the minigun-wielding cyborg posse, though.

Excellent, soundofsuburbia, thanks. I stumbled onto this randomly and had no idea where it was from.

goodnewsfortheinsane: Yeah, I figured it was like that.

And now I shall explore the streets once more!

Oops, I just realized I messed up. Lovepixel's home.

Anybody else getting a timeout? I think you guys killed their server.

Anyway, I prefer ANSI art. I used to spend hours in Text Paint or ZZT.

This person clearly has never seen the roof of a supermarket.

Am I the only one who kept looking for people having sex somewhere?

Heywood Mogroot, just in case you didn't see goodnewsfortheinsane's post right after yours: It was very definitely from Taiwan, not from Mainland. Check the space shuttle if you're not sure.

I've been to some of the places mentioned in the Chinese: Wanfang 萬芳 is a suburb of Taibei, and the Locking Battle is clearly going on in a derivative of 西門町 Ximending. It's a very cute version of Taibei, basically. Cool beans!

It's an isometric trip to Habbo Hotel!

Nice!

Huh? Other then the space shuttle, which sort of borders early/mid 20th century, what are you talking about?
