Love Punks (the Love Punks/Yijala Yala Project)

Understand this… The Love Punks videogame was created by a gang of 9, 10, and 11 year old Lovepunks from Roebourne in Western Australia. For the last 5 months the Lovepunks have been sweating it out, in 40 degree heat, on computers creating stop-motion animations of themselves and friends in Photoshop and Flash. – [Author’s statement]

  1. This is very cool 🙂

  2. Very nice! Glad to see some very creative work come from the heart of Australia!

  3. This is amazing!! I’m going to show this off at the next Dirty Rectangles meetup.

  4. If this is what 9 year olds are making, I think the future of game making is in good hands. 🙂

  5. loved it

  6. That was incredible!

  7. I’m an elementary school teacher and wish we could do more stuff like this in the classroom. It reminds me a bit of when I made board games out of paper, except for infinitely more cool.

  8. I love everything about this

  9. this is so great. I want to make something this good at some point in my life.

  10. Know this, every word and sound effect was made by these young people too.

  11. I found the “making of” video within in game and was blown away by the amount of work put into this game by these kids. Very talented lot they are. Props also to the school department for giving the okay for this type of class to be taught.

  12. Every single part of this is so perfect. 😮

  13. Wow great job guys: I like the visual style and the music + sfx work very well too.

    Nice project, I hope these kids will keep surprising us with more games in the future : )
