messhof : The Thrill of Combat
I remember seeing this back when I first found messhof through Jetpack Basketball but never really found his work impressive. Rewatching it now though, wow.
I'll never understand why companies like nitrome that make generic-ish games get famous and people like messhof go unnoticed.
The guy is most known for Flywrench, but I don't find it that impressive honestly (not that I've played it). The Thrill of Combat, above, seriously looks excellent though. The idea is to control a helicopter and shoot people below with a laser, while dodging missiles and bullets. However, whenever you kill someone, you send down a person from the heli and harvest the organs with a knife that you control while dodging missiles and bullets from your helicopter. How freaking cool is that.
