Web Animation Watch: Gaming Edition

The internet has done great things for animation. It's made it easier for animators to get their work out there than ever before. But with so much stuff out there, how are you supposed to know what's worth watching?  That's where AFA's Web Animation Watch comes in.

This time it's a Video Game themed special. There's much cross over between animation fans and gamers.. but you don't have to be a joypad junkie to enjoy these shorts!

If you've made something that you think would be a good fit for a future instalment, drop us a line and let us know.

Everyone has been talking about Pokemon Go this summer.. so it's no big surprise that has included animators. Mashed's hilarious Game in 60 Seconds (featuring Nicolas Cage) has inevitably turned its attention on everyone's favourite pocket monsters.



Now that Overwatch, has been out for some time, we assumed that Blizzard was finished with putting out animated shorts. We were delighted when they surprised us with a fifth brand new animated short- Overwatch: The Last Bastion. The previous shorts have shown an incredibly diverse range of settings and tones.. and the new one is no exception. With an unexpected Studio Ghibli influence, this latest short is another damn fine piece of work.



This next one is not new, but it may have flown under your radar if you're not a big online gamer. This tie-in with the big hit League Of Legends is an impressive CGI effort with appealing and distinctive character designs and some well exectued action. Fantastic stuff!




And finally...  more Pokemon Go related fun, this time from the always reliable Mr Weebl. We will say no more than that the title 'Bad Pokmon Go Locations' is very fitting.. as is the warning that it contains mature themes. Very funny.
