Enter Saturn V, a digital vestibule filled sound, sight and our favorite earthly pleasures. Please, join us.
This game is incredibly well done, and deserves your attention. Skrillex, meets Zelda, meets the internet.

See how well you judge colors in a game from Method of Action, a site aiming to teach the fundamentals of good design to programmers
Method of Action is an upcoming website promising “Design For Programmers.” A concept I am familiar with; having an understanding of technology but no background in design.
Often this makes it difficult to develop good design on my own simply because I have no fundamental knowledge of the underlying concepts. Admittedly, this site’s design is not unique — I aim to focus on content, and only essential ‘bells-and-whistles’ that benefit the site’s usability.
Have some fun and check out some of the games on the company’s website as they prepare for launch, they offer three examples to teach about Kerning, Text Shape/Bézier, and Color.
FYI: I scored 3.8 based on the following scoring break-down:
