MyMiniCity Review

myminicity.jpg

While researching a quirky idea I had about virtual real estate I stumbled across this curious little site. It seemed fun and creative and reminiscent of original Sim City. It’s called MyMiniCity. The premise is pretty simple, you or anyone starts a city by naming it (there’s no user accounts), and each visitor to the new city grows the population by one, as the city matures each direct visit to a city infrastructure link grows the infrastructure. That’s it. Then you watch the city evolve from town to metropolis. Ok, ok, the image shown above might not be how my little town of rhett.myminicity.com is right now, but who knows how an egotistical city named after yourself will mature? Some of the bigger ones I have found were LUEland in North America and FanaZ in France.

If you decide to start a city, leave a link in the comments and I’ll come visit. It’s a nice little arty game aside to your day that at least won’t consume all of your productivity like many of those other addictive web games can.

update: The city has reached a need for industry. Visit http://rhett.myminicity.com/ind to help employment stay low.

update: The city has reached a need for Transpport. Visit http://rhett.myminicity.com/tra to help peeps get around.

NeoGeo

neogeo_dgv.jpg

Well yes, NeoGeo is different, very different. I guess that’s why it’s labeled “A new edge to abstraction”.

Within the covers of NeoGeo can be found bold and striking use of colour and shapes on packaging, posters, interiors, brochures and more. This book is a showcase of how the basic building blocks of art and design can be used to eye popping dramatic effect. At best this book pushes the boundaries of modern abstraction with a contemporary edge coupled with intrigue. But, at times, some of the works are a mess of primitive shapes clumped together destined to age quickly as a fad.
