Build a base in the woods in Sokpop’s Huts

After several days of working until 5am watching press conferences where mournful music plays as men are stabbed in the neck, I’ve been delighted to get away to the woods and build a little base.

Sokpop Collective Is A Cute Videogame GIF Factory

Oh no, some of RPS’s secret favourite game developers have teamed up to form a videogame collective. Their power to make delightful, colourful, physics-animated games, toys and joys will be too great for any of us to handle.

They’re called Sokpop and they consist of Aran Koning, Tijmen Tio, Tom van den Boogaart and rubna. They’ve made a trailer of their work, which you can watch below, if you have space for so much levity inside of you.
