Flashback This has got to be one of the strangest and most beautiful things I've ever seen. (Flash, requires audio, has lots of pretty colors and runs almost 10 minutes.) I have no idea who the artist is but he obviously spent a lot of time putting this thing together. Does this give anyone else the feeling that they are trippin?

This looks like it was redone from the original. The intro is kind of different then how I remember i, like it has more effects and detail, but maybe I'm just mis-remembering it.

I like everything except the intro. The intro makes it sound like the creator never actually tried LSD, or if they did, they probably shouldn't have. *shrug*

Dig the music, though. I need to find some of that. Sound a bit like older Banco De Gaia or something.

daHIFI, you could have made $2 a little while ago. (note the link in there has a faster mirror)

This is what meetings look like when you get six hours of sleep over four days. The bottom line is just a fractal boundary, crossing it allows you to walk right into your coworkers soul.

Does this make anyone else want to play super metroid?

This is very good, but is it really that deranged or beautiful?

I have a theory: Anything can be 500% trippier if you just mirror it.

I'd never seen it and though it was pretty well done (except for the intro and ending), thanks for the post.

The intro is pretty much as I remember it from a few years ago (has it been that long already?). For anyone who didn't check the link to previous discussion, the music is Shpongle's "Divine Moments of Truth". Which leads me to guess that, even though Abbie Hoffman makes an appearance as the doc, LSD is not the acronym of choice.

The artist who painted the psychedelic mushroom dudes (etc) is Danny Gomez

The artwork in the Flash was inspired by the Shpongle track.

I don't really understatnd what makes this so special. The visuals are sloppy at best and the progression of the "story" is poor. The track is good, but I'd prefer to just listen. Frankly, I'd rather enjoy the truly creative world of Samorost.
