The lights are on
Ok. Perhaps that headline is a little misleading, as most cubes don’t have eyes. However, this video from the one-man music project The Hamster Alliance, puts us in the perspective of the familiar shape as gaming history warps around it.
There are a number of clever nods to gaming stalwarts contained herein, so keep a sharp eye out. The references to Super Mario Bros. and Quake are obvious, but there are stealthier nods to be found in the nearly four minute clip. And, yes, the Virtual Boy is still as eye-searing as you remember.
You can hear more of The Hamster Alliance’s music on the project’s website. Audiosurf fans should make a point to check out a number of videos featuring the rhythm game featured there.
