Cubepong is definately evolving and as more animators and designers come together, it's amazing to see the creativity flow and people joining together to create something so much bigger than themselves.
This latest video showcases some amazing animation and thought behind the theme of Evolution and is sure to be a favourite.

As Cubepong itself evolves, we try out new things and push our creativity further. For the start of this file, I decided to do a screen recording of how it was created.
The whole premise is that a cube is an evolved sphere. I used Thrausi to chop up a sphere and effectors to break it apart procedurally. All in all, it was some trial and error achieving the look and feel I wanted, and just managed to make the 45 minute deadline...
How can we call ourselves Cubepongers if we don’t pay homage to the greatest cube game on the net, Minecraft.
Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, people built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters, but as the game grew players worked together to create wonderful, imaginative things.
Massive props go out to Renderfeed.com for hooking us us with an awesome render and @RisingPixels for comping this scene together for us.
The people responsible for this month's great animation are: @WvdKamp, @rubenmueller, @Rostenbach, @albehany, @atomx, @cblaylock, @RagingClaw, @nrogers so be sure to follow them on twitter and support them.
