Just noting the beautiful beauty of 2d:

It's amazing 2d graphics--not a game--but note the beauty which can be expressed equally in a game as in a movie:

From what I understand, it's all 2d art.

Forgive me for loving the lasting beauty of 2d art:

Hayao Miyazaki is indeed one of the greatest Directors / Writers when it comes to Great 2D Animation movies.

Co-Production of an original RPG between Level 5 and Ghibli

And yes, Ponyo is for most of it 2d art but they do use 3D today for complex camera perspectives. For example, the castle in Howls Moving Castle was 3d and the complex chasing scene during the first part through the city where fully 3d backgrounds (the textures of course where hand painted so it still looks like 2D but would be impossible to do without 3d)
