What's the Space Invaders project about?
The idea is to "invade" cities all over the world with characters inspired by first-generation arcade games, and especially the now classic Space Invaders. I make them out of tiles, meaning I can cement them to walls and keep the ultra-pixelated appearance.


New York:
 -

Paris:
 -


And a bunch more cities.

Someone put one up here, but since UmeŚ isn't on the list, it's not an authentic Invader.

The first thing I thought was: Please, please don't let this go to Boston.. we don't need to go through *that* again!

Hey...I know that top one - it's my favorite bridge. [Frown]
I'm already not pleased about the amount of graffiti on the signs. :/

Heading out for coffee and a walk in this incredible weather...maybe I'll check the link later...

Post a picture, inf! Maybe I'll take a picture of the UmeŚ one next time I'm downtown, even though it's a copycat.

I will do if I can, though it does look like I would need to be on top of the building in question, but I can hope for a view of it.

Judging by the bit of building that I recognize it's on the corner of Flinders st and Russel st, though it also may be Exhibition st. *hint to any one else near or in Melbourne [Razz]

That which doesn't kill you can only make you stronger. Therefore I am damn near indestructable.

Yup, Hosier Lane, in the block bounded by Russel St, Flinders St, Swanston St, and Flinders Lane.

I'll try to remember to take my camera next time I'm going that way.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
