Great Things

Monument Valley

Monument Valley by ustwo is more a work of art than a mere game, but make no mistake, it is that too. The user must guide the character of Ida through a series of surreal architectural puzzles, and apparently a journey of forgiveness. Spellbinding.





Rachel Rising

Rachel Rising, the latest series by Terry Moore, is one of the most original, intriguing comics I've read in a long, long time. Rachel Beck is having one of those mornings. She awakens in a shallow grave - her own - with no memory of what has happened. And she may or may not be dead. As she tries to piece together what has befallen her and why, a sequence of even stranger events begins to unfold. It is a tale of horror and suspense, with the odd bit of humour thrown into the mix.





Silicon Valley

The latest from Mike Judge, creator of Beavis and Butt-head, King of the Hill, and Office Space, is a hilarious take on start-up culture in the Silicon Valley. This is, by far, my favourite new television series. And Martin Starr's Gilfoyle is my favourite new character. Laugh-out-loud funny.

That game looks a bit (or a lot) like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fez_(video_game)

Silicon Valley looks pretty good. The cast of characters is totally stereotypical, but it's an interesting counterpoint to Betas (the show from Amazon).
