According to his Twitter bio, pixel artist Leon (@leyawn) spends his time posting online and making “pixel art of the fat bird from Yoshi’s Island.” Now, he’s combined those two passions in a short adventure game played using the power of tweets and GIFs.

Taking place over a number of Twitter accounts, Leon’s Cool Game is a clever testament to the way different technologies can transform simple game experiences into something better than the sum of their parts. I’m fascinated by the idea of games that intersect with the real world, and the way that social media provides unique opportunities for experimental design.

Also, this game is really funny. One piece of advice: pet the cat. Cats love that.
