CubePong 05 – Video Games
CubePong round five – Video Games
HOLY EFFING BALLS!!!! VIDEO GAMES!!!
I was excited for this Cube Pong if you didn’t realize that. So many ideas! SO MANY GODDAMNED IDEAS!
I took the last spot on this one because I had a great idea to use Mario as an ending by warping down a pipe. I had some extra time so i added a castle and flag. I could write more on this, but its late, im tired, and i dont freaking care.. words and stuff.
Below you will find the excerpt from the cubepong.net site.
From the cube pong vimeo page:
Every boy when he’s growing up, discovers the pleasure he can experience by himself, or with a friend sometimes, in the bedroom.
Getting lost in a magical world filled with excitement, and no matter how sore his thumbs get, he’ll push on, hoping to get to the next level.
What are we talking about, video games of course!
We’ve all got our favourite video game, whether it’s a 16bit stone-age classic, or the latest console and Halo combo. Whether you prefer to be the villain or the hero, it doesn’t matter.
Using their favourite video game character as inspiration, designers and animators from around the globe played along in this month’s CubePong and got down to some serious gaming skills. From the classics to modern touch screen games, this CubePong proved to be one of the best one’s yet.
Be sure to follow this month’s animators and designers on twitter, they are: @c4dweekly,@BitterBeanChris, @Wvdkamp, @BrankoVlahov, @vudumotion, @robleger,@industriousind, @cblaylock, @RagingClaw, @eugeneopperman, @risingpixels
As usual a render would not be possible without the support of our render partnersRenderfeed.com – when it comes to a Cinema 4D renderfarm, there’s no competition.
The open Cinema 4D file for this month’s CubePong is available cubepong.net to download the source file.
Another big THANK YOU goes out to Renderfeed for providing the render farm services needed to get this file rendered so quickly. Thanks!
