When computergames go wrong...

Some more pictures I made for the cracked.com image manipulation contests. Right now I'm doing quite a bunch of these - it's fun and I learn a *lot* about image manipulation simply by toying around. :)

And lo and behold - the first picture made it to #5 (out of 250 entries) in it's topic "When Video Game Characters Finally Snap"

A huge thanks has to go to to babylon-15dl who created the original picture of "not so slim Chell" I used in my collage!

If you don't get the joke - it's "Chell" the main character from "Portal" and cake becomes something of a focus point during the game's story. If you don't know it - get it. It's quite cheap by now and *highly* entertaining.

Still Alive

Ok, usually I just post movies, but this time I need to send a warning ahead: If you, in the future, plan to play the game Portal and don't like spoilers, then don't read on and skip the movie - you'll be seeing it anyways... Oh, and don't read the explanation too...

These are the end credits of Portal which basically blew me away (see below):

Here's a little background information:

Portal is a 3d ego puzzle game. Using the perspective every shooterfan will recognize at once (actually using the fine Halflife 2 graphics engine) it manages to be really tense and at times rather scary without any spacemutants out to eat your guts, guns and crowbars...
