This is another cool breakthrough from John Lassiter, a CGI technique enabling a hand drawn effect...combining tech and a good story line to create a great short animation. Update 2.25.13: the link I originally posted was closed after this film won an Oscar for Best Animated Short, above is a new link which unfortunately has some advertising, its worth the wait, enjoy. Tip: use the full screen icon to the bottom right of the player for best viewing.
Hotel 626 is clever online puzzle game presented by Doritos just in time for Halloween. You can only enter Hotel 626 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. (though you can change your computer’s clock if you want to cheat the system), and you’re not allowed to exit until you have gone on a harrowing journey through the haunted hotel. If you have a webcam and microphone you can enhance the experience, you can also skip sections if you get stuck. Have fun, but keep in mind this may be too frightening for younger children.
