    OMORI is a surreal psychological horror RPGmaker game. You must travel between two worlds, both welcoming, both concealing the same secrets. Meet new (old) people, fight new (old) enemies, explore your own memories, and uncover some hidden truths along the way (although you wish you hadn’t.) When the time comes, you can only choose one. 

    OMORI is a character has been described as a “depressed otaku.”He started off as a character who lived on a blog, which lasted from December 2011 until March 2012.

    OMOCAT always envisioned OMORI as a game; and with the help of some friends (and you), the OMORI video game can be brought to life.

  6. Making a Plymptoon.
Legendary animator Bill Plympton is trying something new: A feature film made entirely from more than 40,000 hand-painted frames.
Plympton is currently funding his seventh feature film, Cheatin’, on Kickstarter. A grown-up tale of jealousy, revenge, and murder shot through with Plympton’s surreal sense of humor, the film would never stand a chance in a traditional studio system. But with 175 backers behind him and counting, the artist’s most ambitious project is our Project of the Day.
