All the way back in April, we wrote about PlayPen, a sort of WikiChooseYourOwnAdventure created by farbs (also known for Captain Forever and Rom Check Fail, among other wonderful things). And, if you’ve explored it yourself, you know that there’s some really wonderful stuff to be found. Too often is the case, though, that in between you and the best parts of PlayPen is a whole lot of, well, crap. Yeah, the “anyone can do anything at any point” mentality is a part of the anarchistic charm of PlayPen, but what if you just want to see the best art the site has to offer?
Enter bestofplaypen.tumblr.com, a regularly updated depository for the greatest pixel art discovered on the site in just the few weeks it’s been around. Since anyone can change any of the art (other than the opening page) at any time, Best Of Playpen seeks to archive the most impressive, interesting, or just plain cool art added to PlayPen in safe, vandal-free place forever! How cool is that?
I’ve posted a small sampling of some of the sweet art they’ve collected below, but for the full experience, be sure to check out the site itself.
