Calvin & Hobbes: The Video Game by Johan Vinet

I have always had a soft spot for Calvin & hobbes, Bill Waterson's wonderful comic strip. I am not nearly as huge of a fan as my boy Joe Esq may be, but I know that lots of people have love for the little boy & his imaginary tiger. So whenever I come across something cool featuring these great characters, I have to post them on CCD. Artist Johan Vinet creates an excellent 16 bit version of the dynamic duo if they had been the lead characters in a Sega Genesis game, and the results are stupendous. After the jump, check out both a GIF and full video version of the opening title card from the faux game, and take a trip down memory lane with two of the best comic strip characters of all time.

and now the video version with moving background:

  1. The creator would never license it, and even if he did,we'd probably have another Superman 64,because that game was killed due to licensing.Pretty much the only evidence that this could be a good game is that the bottom right screen on the cover resembles "Wizards & Warriors" which was a great game.~Regina Harper.
