A Poke-pun tribute to Rian Johnson’s latest by Paul Robertson, creator of ‘Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006′ & ‘Kings of Power 4 Billion %’ as well as art-lead behind Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game & the recently-Kickstarted Mercenary Kings.
The poster’s posted here as a reminder to head to your local cinema this week, if you haven’t already, if you like being pleasantly surprised by subtle sci-fi that’s even smarter than you expect.
‘Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006’ and ‘Kings of Power 4 Billion %’ animator and Scribblenauts contributor Paul Robertson shows off his contribution to Udon’s art book tribute to Capcom’s classic supernatural fighter Darkstalkers. I always feel like a chump stretching and squishing his pixels, so be sure to view it at its native res for maximum impact.
It’s been far too long since I last mentioned 5th Cell’s puzzler/adventure game Scribblenauts, where — as I mentioned last December — your goal is to collect ‘Starites’ by conjuring, well, essentially almost any object to help traverse the landscape, as seen in the game’s latest trailer above.
Over the past 7 months, 5th Cell has continued to up the ante on its gimme-an-object-any-object promise (enlisting artists like Pirate Baby Cabana Battle’s Paul Robertson to help quick-draw new additions), and how well does it work?
Well, from the show floor video above, pretty stunningly well, only failing out on the Nintendorks‘ fairly reasonable request for Obama, but managing to pit a jackalope, a stegosaurus, a kraken, God (and, anecdotally, Death [Death killed God!]), and Einstein against each other.
UPDATE: Tiny Cartridge and Joystiq writer JC Fletcher updates with a picture of not just keyboard cat playing the Scribblenauts level off, but also feline cohort meme Longcat stretching into the sky.
The least potentially offensive illustration Paul ‘Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006/Kings of Power 4 Billion %’ Robertson has published since Cakedogg and Presentcat. View his otherwise blindingly excellent ongoing livejournal portfolio at your peril.

By now you’re probably well familiar with Paul Robertson’s Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006 and epic Kings of Power 4 Billion % (it’s actually a bit criminal to stream either; check here and here for a download mirror to watch in full res), and now he’s returned with, err, an energy drink commercial. It takes too long to get to the good bits, but then you never want it to end.
