By William in New Art on Wednesday 29 September 2010

With an appetite for robots and Samurais, I came across the work of illustrator Crom-Cristian Ortiz, who with a tint of propaganda posters, pictures young warriors in a world where having a companion pet seems as mandatory as it is to belong to some epic Mecha army in quest for honour and glory. Cool and fun stuff which makes me feel twelve years old again.

Robokill

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in Cool Websites on Friday 27 June 2008

Oh boy, Robokill is one of the best flash games ever. It’s a bird’s-eye-view shoot-em-up where you’re a mercenary robot sweeping through a space station that has been overrun by evil, hostile robots. The game is incredibly detailed, and has the best graphics of almost any other flash game. No wonder people aren’t buying game […]
