…Mirror’s Edge 2D is amazing?

Mirror's Edge 2D

By now you’ve probably heard of Mirror’s Edge, the free running/parkour game that is soon to debut for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

However, if you’d like to get in on the action a little early, then check out Mirror’s Edge 2D from Borne Games.

Made by the same people that created the Fancy Pants Adventure, Mirror’s Edge 2D is a free flowing Flash game that closely mirrors the gameplay style of Mirror’s Edge, only in 2D.

The goal is to run, jump, climb and slide your way through the level in a quick but creative way, collecting points and other goodies along the way.

Right now the game is still only in Beta, so you only get one level, and there still might be the occasional bug or two, but there’s definitely promise here, and it’s still fun to play as is, so head on over and give free running a chance.

…Photoshop is as real as it gets?

As Real As It Gets

In case you missed it, this ad for Photoshop, called “As Real As It Gets”, is a fantastically creative interpretation of what the program would look like if it existed in real life.

Also, be sure to check out the Flickr set for some behind the scenes shots, because the size of this ad is almost unbelievable!

…Donkey Kong likes Legos?

With a Mindstorms RCX kit and a lot of creative ingenuity, Dan Kressin managed to recreate an entire Donkey Kong level using only Legos.

In all, it took him about three months or 110-120 hours to complete, and the end result is a fully automatic and synchronized art piece that even plays the Donkey Kong theme song while the action happens.
