We've seen 8-bit versions of all sorts of things recently, but singer-songwriter Will Varley has gone the whole hog and created an 8-bit history of the world.

It features as the video for his own song Weddings & Wars, taken from his As The Crow Flies album, and was created by Varley himself on a demo version of a 90s computer program. Taking six weeks to make, it takes in, well, the whole history of man.

Check out more info on Will at his Facebook page and watch the excellent video below.
