VR games have had some challenges in reaching wide adoption, foremost among them motion sickness. Sairento VR, the debut game from Mixed Realms, however, is one of the best-reviewed VR games currently available and a top-seller on Steam. Its success comes from its unique gameplay style inspired by samurai legend, and from its innovative handling of the motion sickness problem by allowing users to choose their means of transportation in the game.

Mixed Realms is a small studio based in Singapore, and Sairento VR is their first game. Aldric Chang, CEO at Mixed Realms, told me that GIFs are…

Growing up, Geno Palocsko loved two things: art, and ice hockey. “I love everything about the game itself. The almost constant speed and flow of the play, the skating and puck handling skill involved, the fierce combat for possession of the puck, a well placed hip check. The crack of stick on puck, the clang of a puck off the goal post, the crunch of the ice as your skate jets you forward,” Geno says. He’s managed to meld the two in the GIFs he creates for Pens.Hockey, the blog he runs with two friends.

Many of Geno’s GIFs…

JJ Costello describes his in-development game, Cold Comfort, as “the love child of Rainbow Siege Six and Left 4 Dead.” JJ originally conceived of the concept for Cold Comfort in 2016. With no background in software development or animation, though, he initially struggled to bring his ideas to life.

With the help of a 3D artist, Costello was able to turn his Game Design Document into concept art. It’s now a 30-person project, though still unfunded. All contributors work on Cold Comfort in their spare time while employed at other jobs. “If we were all professionals and dedicated to…

Volta Voloshin-Smith started the blog Color Snack while she was in graduate school and working full time, and badly in need of a creative outlet. She started creating watercolor sketches. Once she realized how happy painting made her, she decided she needed to share that happiness with the world.

“The goal of all my tutorials is to make them quick and easy. I want to inspire people to pick up some art supplies and get to sketching,” Volta says.

Volta uses GIFs on her blog because of their value in breaking a task into distinct, visual steps. “ GIFs…

Though Dániel Bali lives and works in London, he’s originally from Hungary, and his extended family still lives there. It makes sense, then, that his art seems not only to transcend language, but to leave behind the possibility of description.

Dániel makes his GIFs using Blender, an open-source 3D image software. Art made with Blender is popular in certain Internet subcultures, but Bali’s work is remarkable for its minimal, abstract style.

Bali creates his painstaking animations in his spare time — he works as a software engineer, and says that he considers himself a “hobbyist-artist,” although he told…
