Maybe it is because I'm a sucker for old-school '90s graphic adventures, but I love these just for what they are: Beautiful 8-bit cycling animations made using HTML5. They're so good that someone should write a game around them.
Swamp Cathedral, Mountain Stream, Haunted Castle at Night, Waterfall... all the 36 scenes - drawn masterfully by Mark Ferrari and coded using true 8-bit colour cycling in HTML5 by Joseph Huckaby - are a true joy to watch. The video only shows five and doesn't make them justice, so go to the original page and check out all of them. They are completely worth the time. [Effectgames]
