Mondrian Provoked
Enjoy these screenshots, you uncultured buffoon!







The thought of you playing the game makes me weep.

Oh yes I'll play it, and then do unthinkable things to it.

I'll send you the pieces later.

I had about thirteen epileptic seizures when I finished a level.

Pretty nice game. I like the insane style. Smiley

Ha, cool!  Mondrian was also an influence on elements of my game.  Between Gamma and Blip I had some time in New York to check out MoMA, and I took some pictures.

If anyone has a chance, it's a great museum, and free on Fridays!

The MoMA is amazing (I was there many years ago). Any museum that features "50 Years of Helvetica" is okay in my book.

It turns out that I've arrived late to the Mondrian party. Pac-Mondrian was created in 2004, and plays just like you would expect. Next time, I'm choosing the ugly guy from the Group of Seven.

Keeping the Mondrian "look" required some tricks. When horizontal walls meet horizontal walls, they actually overlap (examine the screenshots). This ensures that wall outlines never get doubled - which would cause thick lines resulting in very un-Mondrian moments. The same overlap ruled is applied when vertical walls meet vertical walls. Hopefully Piet appreciates the extra work he caused me.

There is also a "mondrian programming language" and a scripting language called "piet  language" that creates pretty pictures as outputs for real problems.

Yeah, the Helvetica exhibit was great!  They also had a whole floor dedicated to experimental architecture, most of which was never built.  Their Media Gallery was kind of hit-or-miss.  And they totally had interactive pieces there -- I can't say they were games because it was a museum and we all know games cannot be art.  Cool

I need to play this game as soon as I'm back in XP.

That's the movie playing right there.  Of course it's MoMA, so they have no headphones.

No, there's like a feature film on Helvetica.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0847817/

It's quite good and it's on Netflix now.

I know!  That's what was playing there Smiley.

"As a special feature in the exhibition, an excerpt of Gary Hustwit's documentary Helvetica (DVD release date: 6 nov 2007) reveals the typeface as we experience it in an everyday context."
