  1. bellissimo ! extraordinary !! super cool ! brilliant ! cheers from Rio… going to the park too

  2. I really like the animation style in this. The film sort of shows how I feel whenever I actually connect with another filmmaker online!

  3. Just leave a note? Isn’t that simpler.

  4. Eerily prescient and reminiscent of a tragically lonely Michael Jackson-esque Matador lost in the Movie Set of The Book of Eli.

  5. The landscape art in this one was absolutely beautiful. That misty, semi-corporeal mien and sense of wistful melancholy, isolation and unmeasured expanse of time and structural decay was such a lovely aesthetic. It really captured the feeling of patient, persistent waiting and deliberately forced hope turned into a routine that one sticks to only because without it there would be nothing else to cling to. Personally, this environment is extremely appealing to me, and I've never felt lonely, or anything much in the way of emotion or empathy in general for that matter, so for that feeling to be imparted through no more than a few minutes of film is no small feat. Brilliant work.

  6. Golden opportunity to title this "Hi Score" missed!

  7. I lowkey wanna see a part two to this? It bring more interest, who could be player 2? male, female, possible creature 😫

  8. To suggest we will be cut off from human interaction and we'll have to find sneaky ways card out….. Interesting

  9. That opening scene reminded me of Samurai Jack. The art style seems to be a close cousin.

  10. Oooff!!! Perfect Score! Press Go to do some more!

  11. Fantastic short film about the positivity of arcade games. I truly hope the character meets their soulmate.

  12. hard to find multiplayers in a POSTAPOCLYPTIC WORLD

  13. ..definitely felt the relief in those tears..

  14. This is a complete story with an actual conclusion, but I would really, really like to know what happens next.



  16. Greetings, Earthling. I am the Bishop of Battle, master of all I survey. I have 13 progressively harder levels. Try me if you dare.

  17. Wow, that was an impressively good storytelling speedrun! Not even 4 minutes.

  18. How can i listen to the song at the end whats the name?

  19. When video gaming save humanity they won’t be laughing then
