Here's something to blow your mind on an otherwise low-key Wednesday afternoon. According to the goodly folks at Offworld, what you're about to see was originally produced by the awesome-obscenely named MUSCLEBEAVER for a German documentary about World of Warcraft addicts, and I think we can all agree that it's entirely unsurprising that this weird, violent, sexual piece of animation came out of Germany. It's a slow build, but it's worth the wait through a minute of Pong to see the rest. I particularly enjoy the practice of redrawing old video-game art, not to improve the resolution, but just to cram in more insane animation.

 
Thanks to numbbaby for hipping me to this midday fever dream.

#8 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

Wow that was pretty great. I am not sure what exactly happened but I loved every reference the video made about other games.

Wow, I liked guybrush getting chainsawed by the Doom guy.

Pixel art never gets old. 

Thank you Ryan, that was great.  If crazy.

I'm not sure what someone trying to watch a doc about WoW would make of this, though :)  Having trouble picking up the thread of context, even with the end.

i always knew mario was an evil bastard, no wonder why princess peach gets her jollies from bowser

#21 Posted by Death_Burnout (3792 posts) -

Yup, that was amazing. I love transitional stuff like that, my mind fucking specializes in it.

Loved How WoW's Elywnn Forest was at the end...but not so sure if i like WoW positioned as...like...present life and existence, you know, like WoW addicts would. So i guess it makes sense.

#22 Posted by fallen_elite (380 posts) -

This is the most amazing video that I've ever seen. Wow that was really cool.

#23 Posted by Kolonel_Kool (327 posts) -

Awesomeness 2.0.

#26 Posted by SinGulaR (2259 posts) -

cool

#27 Edited by CrazyCrazyDoctor (41 posts) -

I think it was trying to say that all of video game design, with it's fusing of ideas (represented through sex here) resulted in the birth of World of Warcraft.

Also, I can't fully explain how awesome the video as a whole is. Guybrush unfortunately getting stuck in Doom was definitely the best part for me, though Ryu and Guile growing facial hair was almost there.

#28 Posted by TekZero (2663 posts) -

Awesome beyond measure.

#29 Posted by FCKSNAP (2299 posts) -

I feel like my brain had sex with my eyeball sockets. This is normal right?

#30 Posted by evilhomer (429 posts) -

i sympathize with the two goombas playing with the ball...mario can be such a dick sometimes

#31 Posted by RagingLion (1363 posts) -

That's an amazing video.  A lot of work must have gone into to it too.

Wow...all İ can say

#35 Edited by numbbaby (11 posts) -

If it was intended as an open for an unfinished documentary, I wonder if the reason it's on the Pong so long in the beginning is for a narrator (that was never recorded) to talk about video games and how simplistic and innocent they were when they started, etc.  The rest of it is so tight, that would explain the slow open.

It's the little things that help, too, like the fake CRT horizontal rolling during the Pong section, as if it were taped off an old TV.  And I absolutely LOVE the old-school-like animation of the body falling apart after being chainsawed.  Brings back memories I've never had.

This was not a small amount of work.  Nice going, Germany!

#48 Edited by Jimbo (9774 posts) -

Anybody remember that Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll game that never came out?  That looked pretty good...
