Visualization of Death
[youtube id=”hEoxaGkNcrg” align=”center”]The very mesmerizing video above is actually a 3D visualization of deaths from impacts in Just Cause 2; they can be from hitting the ground or getting hit by an object. Each white dot represents one of over 11 million of these deaths.
The video was created by Jim Blackhurst, a Square Enix employee, who is a great example of people that can be geeks about things other than games, anime and music. He is clearly a data geek and loves it in its raw, visualized form. There is a really neat post on his blog about the creation of this video that I recommend if you want to know more.
