Saturday Supercade: Stop-Motion 80’s Arcade Games

Tooling around the internet this evening I stumbled upon a rather wonderful stop-motion video over on YouTube, entitled Game Over. It was created by PES, who is actually Adam Pespane, and he uses all manner of various food products and other items from the home to recreate some moments from the classic 80’s arcade games.

There is a wonderful interview with PES over on the The Animation Show site. So when you have a moment, make sure to hop over there and check it out!

Now I’m also including something that PES didn’t have a hand in, at least that I am aware of, but it is just as awesome. Enjoy this Tron Evolution trailer and tell me if you didn’t get chills at the end of it…especially when you realize who is narrating.

    Terrific stop-motion that made me instantly nostalgic!
    And hungry for cupcakes and pizza.

    And the Tron trailer feeds my Tron hunger admirably well.
    But I’m always a bit non-plussed as to how the actual game is supposed to look when a preview cinematic is offered to whet the appetites.
    I’m hoping it doesn’t disappoint.
