When Google Fails

Attention saturation -- and everyone who is not opposed to it -- my apologies to turn to the Saturation Broadcast System (*kio) but I'm desperately trying to remember something and google cannot help me.

You know sodaplay? Shortly before I left for Berlin, there was something posted on some blog somewhere about something that was very similar, sort of taking it one step further. I need to find it. Here's what I'm pretty sure about:

-- It was posted to either memepool or mefi in the first half of April, give or take.
-- It might have come from some european country.
-- It was similar to sodaplay but dimensional, and maybe it had color too.
-- It had something to do with making little creatures and trying them out.

I'm desperate. I've combed mefi and memepool, can't find it again, have gone through my cache -- everything. But one of you (I'm looking at you, hirmes) MUST know what I'm talking about, and I'll buy dinner for whoever knows it. That's how much I need it, I've been looking for weeks.

Perhaps you are talking about vectorpark? I kind of stalked this fellow and found out that he actually lives in Brooklyn. I love this site -- kind of reminds me of Chris Ware a little bit but he's definitely created a world of his own.

Yay, I get to have dinner with hirmes! Just tell me where, sir, though that maybe we could do offblog. But here's my immense public gratitude.
