Tokyo 42

This game is gorgeous. Highly stylised isometrics and stark colours, what’s not to love?

Tokyo 42 is the lovechild of Syndicate and GTA 1.

I can hardly miss CodePen off this list as I use it so heavily myself. CodePen is as its name suggest, a playpen for code. It’s a fantastic place for the sharing and showing-off of techniques, and whether you’re a developer, casual browser or just looking for inspiration, there’s stacks of interesting stuff to explore.

“The home of alternative digital design” is full of interesting ideas rather than me too sites, which makes this archive stand out. I like the minimalistic design of the site itself (although suffers somewhat from mystery navigation).

Inspire

Inspire is where I collect sites that catch my imagination. The sort of sites that make me say I want to do that, (why can’t I do that!), sites that have thoughtful UX, clever effects, new tech, awesome tricks or just look cool. It also serves as a collection of collections, a resource for when I’m left scratching my head and looking at a black PhotoShop document.

I hope some of these links inspire you, too.
