13 Amp

13 AmpYou needn't be an engineer to enjoy these 13 short animation experiments exploring sound, electricity, and interface interactions. Each funny animation unfolds like a short film, with a unique variation upon the theme of sound and electricity. We loved that the site has no words(!), and all the elements are self-explanatory....

Rockstar Games

Rockstar GamesA super angular technical design look. This release, replacing an already heavily awarded previous site (done by Oyster Partners), brings the best of the latest - minimal and futuristic-angular design trends - together into one spectacular release. This new push is dedicated to developing the best digital entertainment destination, and this ripe design sends the message: they are doing the business!... More

ei2ei Virtual Easter

ei2ei Virtual EasterA sweet pixelated holiday treat; find the Easter eggs in an randomly generated landscape. Each egg contains a hidden treasure, from mini Flash movies, to egg recipes, short bunny movies, and even an egg font... obviously, the crew behind this is following a strict theme. There's also some fancy customizable options going on behind the beautiful scenery.... More

Amidst a multitude of animated areas you can interact with the game and other users too, creating a visually rich multimedia experience.... More

Rustboy

RustboyThere are a lot of people making really good cartoons with 3D imagery, but Rustboy.com does stand out in a number of ways. Complete with a diary, a "Making Of" section, concept art, and test scenes, Rustboy and his creator, Brian Taylor (XL5), have put together a website with some real meat. For the casual viewer, I doubt very much that this site will yield much more than some "oohs" and "aahs", but for a designer (or anyone who has ever wished to be an animator) this site provides much more. As mentioned, Rustboy comes complete with a "Making Of" section - and therein is the treat. As you watch Sundance quality QT files, you can read the details of how each effect was accomplished. To be fair, he only goes into detail on a few things, but the site is updated pretty regularly and it is safe to assume... More

InsertSilence

InsertSilenceThis is an oldie, but goodie. It's one of those sites that gets your blood pressure up because, try as you might, you cannot fully explain how Insert Silence was built. Sure, one can go on about tracer movie clips and masks, but that doesn't fully explain it. There's something else at work. Normally, we like to provide a description of a website in these little blurbs, but Insert Silence is something that should really just be seen for itself. Think Nosepilot meets the Bauhaus School of Design.... More

Unplugged TV

Unplugged TVWinner of several prestigious awards (most recently winning SXSW's "Best Online Entertainment" website, 2002), Toronto-based Unplugged TV certainly doesn't need the help of a review here on DT. But we just can't help ourselves. Biting much of their interface from such online entertainment pioneers as Heavy.com and Atom Films, UTV offers quality cartoons and games, a best-of-breed GUI, and pretty decent merchandise, all for free. It's as simple as that. "No need to reinvent the wheel," is their mantra we suspect. Unplugged Studios just concentrates on making it smoother. If your cartooning toolbox is running low on inspiration, take a look at their animation style for a bit of fresh air. It's all the best elements of Flash's limited animation capabilities, wrapped up in a very friendly interface. Highlights include: Rebecca (note: once you see the site, you'll understand how cliché that statement really is).... More

Broken Saints

Broken SaintsBroken Saints is a very, very, very painstakingly created online comic book. As a long time comic book enthusiast, I can assure you that Broken Saints is not just a good comic book in the online sense, it really would be a good comic book if it were published in a more traditional format. The presentation is absolutely beautiful. The crew at Broken Saints has triumphed in the area of navigation, mood, music, and lighting, if you can believe it. And of course, last but not least: the fonts. It's not the only way to publish an online comic, but it's definitely one of the best hybrids of technology and tradition we've seen. If you have ever endeavored to publish your own comic book ideas online, you simply must examine the Broken Saints website - because the bar has been raised. Highlights include: Chapter 17.... More

Kasparov vs. Deep Blue

Kasparov vs. Deep BlueA great site and historical record of the battle between man and machine. Subtly great design, invoking the hidden power and sexiness of Chess. Although some of the early work on the olympic and chess site seem similarly structured, the applied formula is artfully altered to evoke a classy and refined atmosphere for the greatest human challenge of all time. Note how the layout of the gameboard provides an efficient structure for game commentary, current and past moves, and additional navigation.... More
