Fresh as Today's Headlines

Dikembe Mutombo's 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World is genius.

A series of 4 episodic arcade games each created in just one week based on something from that week's news, the game feels like an entirely new art form, the newsgame.  But it's news by way of The Daily Show, because it's hilarious.  The quality of the games themselves are quite impressive given the insanely short development schedule, but it's the very funny cutscenes that really make the game shine.  If this is what product placement of the future looks like, I'll take a dozen.

You can read more about how this product got made here,  But do that later.  Go play now.
