We all grew up playing video games, and we’ll probably grow old doing the same, so when Great Big Story asked us to create animations for their “Curious History of Video Games”, we got pretty darn excited. Our animations explore the origins of games from the early text based adventures like The Hobbit, the infamous and mysterious arcade game Polybius,  Super Mario, Mad Dog McCree, and Street Fighter just to name a few. Here’s a supercut of our animations and a link to the whole series can be found below.
