Seeing this news immediately transported me back to my Donkey Kong Country playing days. The days I’d stay up all night playing, and leave the game on pause during the day till I came home from work, so I continue right were I left off. I kept the game on a full week…and finished it of course. Ah, the joys of thumb-itis.
And now this classic returning! We’re so exited. Here is the trailer.
Donkey Kong Country Returns is developed by Metroid Prime creators Retro Studios. The game will feature the same familiar 2D gameplay that players have come to expect of the franchise. The trailer shows Donkey and Diddy making their way through levels of mine carts, swinging from vines, and fighting through pirate ships.
Ronald Bladen (1918-1988) is considered one of the founders of Minimalism, but he was also a self-proclaimed romantic. His interest in monumental scale and simple form was less a product of conceptual reductionism, but rather, of an interest in the drama which such forms can inspire. He was interested in the “presence” of a work of art. The solidity and simplicity of his work was intended to reinforce its stature, to stabilize and ground itself as the viewer shifts position.
