Swedish artist Erik Johansson has both delighted and disappointed me today. His digital art and image manipulation is top notch, and anything influenced by Tetris is of course awesome. But as great as this piece is, it’s terribly sad, because I cannot play giant Tetris.
This is just begging for someone to make a flash game for this concept: using a crane to manipulate giant tetrominoes in order to build something. Or take another cue from Johansson and cook up a game based on playing Tic-Tac-Toe in an unfinished road. Yes, in, not on.
Classic games are perfect for these kinds of digital art. I’d hate to see what this guy could do with something like Call of Duty….
