Is that good? I don't know. I gave up after a minute and a half.

An hour and a half and no comments? Well, I've seen the two videos (referred directly by laughingsquid before this was posted) and they're bad. Lame. Stupid. Fail. The depiction of Computer Systems of each period are so innacurate as to be totally misleading. And the Clone clip lost me with one word in the description "neoconservative" (what does THAT have to do with business executives?) The "pixel-art" style was excessively artsy-fartsy and I'm asking laughingsquid (which usually doesn't steer me wrong) for my 6 minutes back.

I thought it was splendid. Great character animation, overall distinct style. Thanks for the post.

Unfortunately all deposits of time in Laughing Squid were insured by AIG. You'll have to wait till YouTube bails out everyone out.

I don't know, I prefer Pirate Baby's Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006.

Please tell me this was painstakingly animated using dot matrix printers, or nixie tubes, or something.

otherwise it was lame.
