I don’t normally blog about games but I just love the graphics in Parachute Panic [iTunes store link] (a new game for the iPhone, available for the introductory price of 59p at the time of writing). The background is ever-so-slightly crumpled notepaper, and the animated figures are stick figures and simple line drawings. It’s the antithesis of the glossy 3D rendered stuff you see elsewhere yet somehow manages to look beautiful for it.
I’m looking to redesign this blog soon and suspect ParaPanic will prove to be a strong influence.
[Edited 9th June to give ‘ParaPanic’ its full name and to add iTunes Store link.]
