Take a jaunt up to the frozen Poles, conjure up your favorite octopus and penguin and make them dance!
Dancing at the Poles was our inaugural interactive feature. I built it in Macromedia Director and you will need Macromedia's Shockwave to enjoy it.
If you don't already have Shockwave, it is easy to download and install from here:
Once you have Shockwave and have reviewed the notes below,
jump right over to Dancing at the Poles:
- After the presentation is loaded, wave your mouse over the title card, and you'll be shown a diagram of what keys are "in effect". (Pressing the "?" key any time during the presentation will remind you of your options.) Press any key to start.
- Clicking the mouse on and off Tako and Pengo has various effects as does passing it into and out of the two of them. Try out Auto mode (type "a")!
- Have fun! Experiment with different dancing keys in succession.
- The show is 416K, so it will take a couple of minutes to load. Also, it is best suited to monitors set at 800 x 600.
- Dancing at the Poles comes with its own musical track courtesy of musician, Burd Early! The piece here, "Little caper", was created especially for FEW and FAR Between and appears in its entirety on Burd Early's new album, Magnet Mountain. If you like the sound of "Little caper", visit www.burdearly.com and find out how to get your own copy of the whole album. (PS: Joda designed the CD art!)
For variety, feel free to turn the sound off (type "x") and put on your own favorite CD for T&P to cut the rug to (or the ice, rather)..
- If you move around among windows and lose interactivity with the show, click right on it to regain interactivity.
Let me know how you enjoy dancing with Tako and Pengo!
and this week's strips.
There's something new all the time. Come back tomorrow!
If you enjoy FEW and FAR Between, I'd love to hear from you!
