Lost in the Static is visually striking game, quite unlike anything you've seen before. As you can immediately understand from the screenshot. Right?
Well, no, you can't. Let's try again. Lost in the Static is a conventional, short, enjoyable platformer with nothing particularly innovative about the gameplay. But the mechanism by which it produces its images is highly unusual, with effective music that (purposefully, one assumes) carries a sense of the static you might get by playing music on an old AM radio or a 45 turntable, providing an interesting and artistic emotional frame for the game itself.
The basic visual technique is this: the background is randomly generated static that is moving continuously and smoothly; the foreground--both your character at the obstacles you face--either do not move, or move differently from the background, but are themselves shapes filled with static. During play, it is easy for the eye to pick out these shapes against the moving background, but ultimately, everything is constructed of visual noise--and if you take a screenshot, which inherently is a single instant with no motion, all you'll see is visual static from which no shapes can be distinguished.
It's a bit of a hat-trick -- hard to see this spawning imitators. And yet the hat-trick itself is interesting, and worth experiencing. And the actual game itself is a moderately fun platformer that won't take you forever to complete.
