An 8-bit history of the world: Will Varley's 'Weddings and Wars'

Will Varley

A slight diversion this, from the usual e-commerce reviews.

A while ago I promised to post an 'interesting thing of the week' every week. So far, I have failed miserably, but I hope to rectify that slightly now by posting this: a wonderful video by folk singer Will Varley. It's for his track 'Weddings and Wars' and is a NES-style 8-bit video game which explains the history of the world in under 4 minutes and using Commander Keen style graphics... I'd love to play it. 

You can watch it here: Bloody good song to boot.
