Friday Fun ‘n’ Games – Average Shoveler

More posts coming soon. Promise. Maybe even today. But probably not.

A little PoMo for your friday fun ‘n’ games this afternoon. Average Shoveler uses throwback pixel animation to give you a playable, visual experience of the day’s news. The game pulls in images and headlines from various RSS feeds and you literally dig them up. Occasionally a snowball will drop from overhead and splash a rainbow of images for your viewing pleasure. This takes a while to load – so bring it up, grab some coffee, tea or organic soy latte and then come back for a slightly strange Friday treat.
