Random Quickies: Helvetica

I’m a pretty big fan of LucasArt’s Grim Fandango game, the one where spending your life as a skeleton actually seems kinda fun. I wait patiently for the day when they resurrect (pun unintended) the game for iPad. Grim Fandango on the go? Yes, please.

Until then, I guess I’ll have to tide myself over with J. N. Wiedle’s Helvetica. It’s the story of a skeleton who’s just newly arrived into the world of the undead, filled with irascible cabbies, enthusiastic fashion designers, and bohemians. The story thus far is a light-hearted affair reminding me of the best moments of Hanna Is Not A Boy’s Name, only with a far more vibrant palette and artistic style reminiscent of 1960’s pop art.

  1. I like the look of this one. It should make a nice replacement for Hanna as it hasn’t updated in a year.
