Deru blew us away with his nostalgia-induced '1979' LP and audiovisual project. The man understands design.

Alien Isolation - possibly the most atmospheric game ever created. We're massive fans of the original film, and this is simply drenched in that vibe.

 

Beeple consistently entertained us with his relentless audiovisual experimentation

This upcoming game from MethLab collaborator and genius XRA - his Memory of a Broken Dimension project has now been greenlit for Steam and will soon see the light of day :D

 

Hannibal Season 2 made us squirm under its psychologically intense and discomforting gaze.. 

 

Australia showes that they really know how to portray an apocalypse with These Final Hours

 

and also the more gritty and misanthropic Aus film The Rover

 

and last but not least - through this Trailer for Mad Max // Fury Road...  Jeez Australia, from whence comes the bleakness?! :D

 

The Walking Dead finally became consistently enjoyable

 

Imperfect but ultimately creative - not for everyone but had lovable elements if you can put aside a portion of disbelief - Snowpiercer
