Space Giraffe developer and notorious industry whingebag Jeff Minter has been hard at work on a new game that he is hoping to pitch to Activision. Not really, but his idea for Video Game Hero could be a pretty good prospect nonetheless. Surely anything would be better than Space Giraffe.
"Someone should do Video Game Hero: You pretend to play games with no real skill in using a rubbish plastic joystick and set to cheesy music," states the James Seth Lynch lookalike.
Brilliant idea, and oh-so witty satire, Mr. Minter. Let me also pitch a Hero game of my own that I've been working on with the boys in the lab. We call it Jeff Minter Hero: You pretend to develop games by throwing psychedelic colors and Internet memes at players and then throw a temper tantrum when nobody wants to buy your weird, stupid bullsh*t.
I think Activision would love that.
