Living Worlds – Mark Ferrari

NOTE: This first version of the app contains a single scene (January). We'll add one new scene per month throughout 2019; no additional purchase necessary.

This Living Worlds app is a modern recreation of a set of dynamic pixel art scenes first published in the early 90s as part of an "illustrated personal organizer" named Seize the Day, and seen as screenshots across the Internet since then. These scenes were created by Mark Ferrari, legendary classic game artist. Now, 25 years later, Ian Gilman, the original software developer, has resurrected the Living Worlds, with Mark's support and additional code from Joseph Huckaby. There may be copycats, but this is the only authentic version from the original creators!

This initial release of the app contains the January scene in its full glory. The sun rises and falls in real time, snowstorms pass through, the moon and stars cross the sky. Smaller details like chimney smoke and animal footprints come and go. The image "lives" throughout the day, drawing you in, suggesting stories, and rewarding quiet observation. Throughout 2019 we'll continue bringing these worlds back to life, releasing a new scene every month as part of this app.

Come join us for this 25th anniversary celebration of these unique artworks!
