    Noir Lac: When Kevin Wins, the Planet Loses

Miscellaneous: Noir Lac's collection of picturesque video game scenery of yore

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Did you ever lose yourself lost in a mystical forest of some other world on a hot afternoon in your summer holidays, only to realise that the forest was in a game, and you had been playing a console for six hours straight? Me too! This collection of dreamy video game scenery, collated by a seemingly anonymous gamer, takes you back to the worlds you grew up losing yourself in. You can hear the fake sound of the fake waves lapping at the fake shore. You can hear the casio-tone twinkles as the fat, pixelated leaves rustle in the breeze. As far as I’m concerned, these worlds are, far superior to the grey, litter-strewn planet we are forced to actually reside in, and this man has done an excellent job of illustrating that.
