Wednesday Web Watch

I’ve been sitting on a bunch of cool webstuff for a bit. So here’s a break from the usual whine and cheeze about grad school:

Life Sized Ugly Dolls

from the San Diego Comic Con for Jenny

And on the web site side: Homestar Runner dot com (home of Strong Bad) has rolled out one heck of a homage to Sierra games (creators of Kings Quest, Space Quest, and Leasure Suit Larry games). Peasant’s Quest is an amazing blast from the past. From the 8 bit graphics and sound, to the text interface, to the page name disk 4 of 12, they did an amazing job of recreating the feel of an old Sierra games. Give it at try and see if you can earn all 150 points.
