W-DOT-COM (2012) - Yannick Val Gesto


Published on Apr 26, 2012

"W-DOT-COM" is a 16 minute video / documentary that tries to capture the atmosphere of the relatively unknown game called worlds.com through exploration.

Worlds.com was created in 1994 and is best described as an online communication platform, it combines the social aspect of a chatroom with an interactive 3D environment and a strong emphasis on user-generated content.

Experiencing Worlds.com can be quite creepy, due to the small community that is still maintaining this game you are often left wandering alone through various types of environments that are strongly characterized by outdated graphics, strange themes and naïve aesthetics. 
Everything you get to see is user-generated and may or may not be created over 15 years ago, thus increasing the chance of visual/virtual weirdness.
I would also like to clarify that the video does not show any human players, everything that moves is either an animated object or npc.

The idea that these NPC characters and animated objects are trapped inside this immortal (yet dead) virtual world is quite unpleasant, the context they are often portrayed in does not make it any better.
This uncannyness reached its peak when i got confronted (ingame) with actual pictures of the most prominent players.

I had and still have an affection for this game, i never played it with any other purpose than to document it and i am happy that i have been able to eternalize this hidden gem.

Roman Hiele provided a soundtrack based on the orginally captured audio from the game.
This was done to avoid copyright infrigment issues and deliver a more refined and characterized sound. 

Concept & realisation by Yannick Val Gesto, soundtrack by Roman Hiele.
Commissioned for XING.it, liveartsweek (Bologna).

Yikes, you beat me to it. It looks incredibly awesome, cute, the theme song is great and the animation is really fluid!

So Does Anyone Have Any News About “Star vs the Forces of Evil”?

I know there were supposed to be previews of it during the panels of “Wander Over Yonder”, “Gravity Falls” and “Phineas and Ferb” but I can’t really find any new info about the show.  Anyone who went to the panels wanna share their general impressions?  Or just a hint about when the show will be coming out?

It’d be pretty dope if the sneak peak at comic con would be uploaded. I just want more stuff from this show.
