A literally ‘gripping’ banner

Just looking through some old work and found a banner I had created years ago. So what, you ask? Well, as banners go, it’s pretty gripping 😉

I created this for the BBC, to advertise a game related to one of their TV shows. It employs some pretty clever maths to animate some creepy vines which actually reach out to steal your mouse cursor. It was built in Flash, now partially resurrected with Ruffle/WebAssembly, so certain things don’t work (such as transparent background and filters). Try it out here!

In the video below you can see what it originally looked like.
