Sketch What You See Hidden in the Clouds
Heard of the term “pareidolia”? Neither have we, until we played this new HTML5 game called Hidden in the Clouds.
We’ve always known that the human brain always fills in details of what your eyes can see, making you perceive persons or objects where there are none. But we didn’t know there was a word for it.
This atmospheric game suggests you play your favorite music before starting it. And we think you should do it too, as it may stimulate your imagination even further for what you’re about to do.
For the most part, all the game does is let you watch clouds as they idle by. Occasionally, you will see birds flying, the sun shining, hot air balloons floating, or a rainbow appearing.
But the main idea is for you to draw on the sky the things that your brain perceives. Using simple controls, you can pause the clouds’ movement, sketch with a virtual pen or modify its stroke opacity, and take a snapshot of your artwork.
This is a perfect activity for when you just need to pass time in a relaxing yet creative way. (Yes, we got really creative with our drawings here, didn’t we?)
