We have some University students in at work; they are doing some sort of work experience thing which basically means free slave labors for us. I personally have two guys helping me with some stuff and I’ve taken to calling them “my minions.” From what I gather most work experience people usually wind up being errand boys at what ever company they intern at. But I’ve got these two poor bastards doing in game equipment icons for me. If the icons are good enough they will be used in the game and the two of them will even get art credit.
It was really nice that when I gave them the dog and pony show sales pitch that described the game they were actually very into it. This is before actually seeing anything we have running; this was just after hearing me give a brief game play overview. It has been awhile since I’ve been around when anybody new was introduced to the game and it was quite uplifting to see such a positive reaction to it. I’d tell you about it but it is still hush-hush secret.
Well, I am off to see if I can get this old copy of The Secret of Money Island running on my computer. I managed to get a hold of all four games and am planning on playing through trough. I never got to play 3 & 4 and that always bothered me. Oh, in case you are wondering that this old computer not the new computer as I still haven’t fixed that one, I actually haven’t touched it in forever hoping maybe it will fix itself or something.
