That does look very impressive. I like the concept. Elasto Mania made 3D.

Thanks, if you want to play the classic 2D version of Trials, they're available for free as Trials Legends. The real break-through games though were Trials HD and Trials Evolution on the Xbox 360, but they were packaged as Trials Evolution Gold for PC last year (there's a demo).

At this point, I would say the game has more in common with Minecraft than Elastomania. The editor in our game is insane, and the players have made many Minecraft themed tracks... or stuff that's just mindboggling.

With Fusion, we just decided to go big.

One would think they relocate people only in China.

“A Journey through Middle-Earth”, is an interesting Chrome experiment. It is a multimedia experience based around "The Hobbit".

Pulled this from Pace's facebook page. One crushing defeat and two sacked managers wasn't enough for them? Along with an ungodly sum of money they had to pay?

Either way, I'll bite:

That's hilarious, RWM. :) I'm guessing they wouldn't want you to tell the *real* story. I wonder if it even occurred to them that their post applies to you. :)

They have long ago blocked me from posting to their page. Otherwise, yes, they would have heard from me on this one!

I suppose I could set up a fake profile to post there, but it is not worth it to me.

Maria got a good laugh out of it too. So did our friends that work there.

Good version of the trick, probably the finest.

By good I mean that video comments are disabled. Some people discovered the trick already, but this version lets everyone to discover the trick themselves, without entering the peeping tom game.

By finest, I mean Penn & Teller. :wink:

Remember, solution is right within your eyesight. ^^

Not sure if it counts at "Interesting", though I think it does. This is a small model railroad I'm building inside a briefcase. This is done in N scale. Z scale, which is smaller, is usually the scale commercially available layouts this size are made in.

Wonder if anyone have watched these videos before about how kids react to the technology that we have used in the past:
1) Kids react to Gameboy
2) Kids react to Old Computers

Going to the cider tasting, through once heavy industrialized riverbank district that is undergoing revitalization, I discovered this. Don't know why, but my first association was "Grimm Tales". Fun. :D
