Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

The Next Tetris: Gorogoa

In its time, the world's most compelling and addictive video game was the Russian-designed tile-matching puzzle, Tetris (1984).  This year, a beautifully illustrated multi-dimensional tile game, Gorogoa, is due to be released. It is being designed in San Francisco by Jason Roberts (see his game development blog here). You can go to his Website and download a trial play of the game, or see trial game play here or in the video below. The illustrations remind me of the retro-futuristic elegantly conceived Web comic, Tozo (see my post on Tozo here). Even though it has not yet been released, Gorogoa has already won the Indie Cadie 2012 award for visual design. The preview of the game is also below.
