I am of the firm belief that any excuse to watch the work of stop-motion animation wizard PES, for the first time or the thousandth time, is a good one. So it pleases me that one of his best works, the old-school video game tribute Game Over, has a fresh new HD remaster on the internet.
Game Over features recreations of some of the Arcade Era’s most famous games, including Asteroids, Space Invaders, Frogger, Pac-Man, and more. And they’re all done in PES’ signature style of detailed, handcrafted stop-motion animation, this time with authentic sound effects straight from the games themselves. So far, this is the only one of PES’ shorts to get a new HD remaster on YouTube, but hopefully it means that more are on the way.
You can watch the new HD version of Game Over below. And for more from PES (and be forewarned, this stuff can be pretty addictive), check him out on YouTube right here.
