This episode we’re leading a Princess through Monument Valley, and taking a trip on a little runaway train called Snowpiercer.
Movie: Snowpiercer (2013)
- A fantastic post-apocalyptic dystopia set on a train. Yes, a train.
- This exciting story is set 18 years after a failed attempt at controlling global warming sent the planet into an ice age. The last of humanity lives on a train that circles the frozen Earth once per year. For the economy class passengers in the Tail of the train, it’s not a pleasant little road trip and they decide to change their fate.
- It’s been described as “Hunger Games on a train”, but I think it’s more like Hugh Howey’s ‘Wool’ running into the Capital from ‘Hunger Games’.
- It stars Chris Evans, John Hurt, Kang-ho Song (from The Host), Tilda Swinton, and Octavia Spencer to name a few.
- If you missed the limited run of this Korean movie by Radius TWC in theaters, don’t worry! It’s on Video On Demand as of July 11.
Game App: Monument Valley
- An iOS and Android app by ustwo.
- ustwo describes the game as “An Illusory adventure of impossible architecture and forgiveness.”
- Check out some of the beautiful screenshots from this game here.
- Art deco meets Escher meets awesome
- You have to play a princess, but it is all cool
Game App: Flappy Zombie on iOS. Just don’t do it folks.
