    One very weird site.

    bio-bak is the Dutch word for food waste rubbish (garbage) bin and as far as I can make out the object of the site/game is to collect the rubbish and return it to the bin. I am sure it is very creative but it is also mighty confusing. I cannot make my mind up whether I love it or loathe it. Take a look. What's your opinion?


    http://www.bio-bak.nl/

    Edit: Ok, I'm a glutton for punishment and went back and now I'm totally confused; what you are supposed to do, can anyone enlighten me? There seems to be an Easter egg of some kind whichever way you turn. The guy's got quite a sense of humour. Grab the lizzy by the nose.

    Edit: Edit: The lizzy is a T-rex and you only get to see it if you go to biography. I think I have sussed it; the idea is to return the tools to the toolbox. Also you need to wait a bit for the graphics to load and settle each time you make a movement unless you have a very fast connection.

    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    That's crazy! But I do respect the amount of work that has been put into it...Strangely, I'm reminded of the exact reason why I don't do design work after I'vebeen drinking (like now)

    I like it !

    It needs more activities though, or a better way of carrying you from one point to the next.

    There was an unpowered record-player and a trail of arrows that would lead you around the "Bio-Bak" to find the battery for it. But it took me a long time to stumble upon the record-player after that whole tool-box / metal-detector mission.

    If you zoomed out after getting the tool-box you'd see that the Bio-Bak is a huge T-Shirt design that the artist is selling.

    C'mon, it has a huge flashing arrow that says insert battery pointing to it!

    That's a really nicely done site, I enjoyed it.

    In the brief look I gave it I think it is funny, I am belly laughing! That voice, the guy with the megaphone mouth is hilarious. I will give this a more thorough investigation when I have a couple friends around.

    Thanks for the link.

    inventive, funny and crazy in the same time
    I don't get the reasons for making such an website, but I think it's only for fun, right?

    That website is rather clever in the way they have broken design conventions to experiment with the possibilities of what you can do with the web, so for that I applaud it.

    It's a brilliant site. The guy obviously has a wacky sense of houmor and doesn't take himself seriously at all. I think i would love to wear one of the shirts.
