“I found the idea of a traditional author tour, where you go and stand behind the lectern and talk about yourself, I found it a little bit embarrassing, a little blatantly self-promotional and a little boring.”
Yeah, it’s way more cool, and interesting and non-traditional and NOT AT ALL EMBARRASSING to exploit “remarkable, special weirdos”, by convincing them to perform for free.
Hi, I am Paul. I am a game developer at 4Tech. Can you make me a favour and test one new game called Stormfall? It is the best new online game coming soon. Play it on my tumblr blog. Hope you enjoy it! Let me know how it was, we can have a chat. Paul
Sorry. Not interested. I only play games where the women wear actual clothes.
Even the warrior ladies, for some reason, need their boobs hanging out. And I get it! Boobs can get really sweaty and I imagine it’s probably nice to have some airflow there during the heat of battle. But it also makes it real easy for, I don’t know, arrows and swords to pierce your sternum and kill you?
Maybe try and think again about why you’re including these characters in the game and who they might be, and once you’re clear on that think again about what kind of outfits they might actually wear.
(Before I looked at your site, I was tempted to play this game because of the name, but then I remembered I only liked the name because there’s a fictional novel of the same name on one of my favorite shows.)
