Throw in a low coefficient of friction and a bit of angular momentum, and you get Hurricane Balls; they’re two welded ball bearings which spin at crazy high speeds with a puff of air.

Eat Lead: Matt Hazard

Eat Lead: Matt Hazard

Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard is an action game that parodies past and present games a la Duke Nukem. We love his so-called fan page as well as the VH1-style trailer above.

Short Film: The Tale of How

Video: Bol.com Ad

This commercial for Dutch game retailer Bol.com is on permanent repeat in our office; we just can’t stop laughing, even though there’s a poor little girl in it. Please don’t hate us for being evil.

Video: Creamer Cannon

Mythbusters has a preoccupation with cannons, not that we’re complaining: this Creamer Cannon uses non-dairy creamer to create a explosion that is part terrifying and all awesome.

Mixing steampunk with concepts of verticality, we’re really looking forward to Damnation. It’s a cross between Dark Void and Mirror’s Edge, so expect to do a lot of jumping and climbing.

Short Film: Vinyls Attack

If you love classic 1950s B-movies, check out Vinyls Attack, an animated 3D short by Niko Lesaffre. It’s not all retro, of course; towards the end, it turns into a UFO dance party.

Short Film: Reverie

What’s really special about Vincent Laforet’s Reverie is that it was shot with a Canon EOS 5D MKII, one of the first video-capable DSLRs. There is no post-processing except resizing.
