Valet Parking 1989 developer diary brings the discomfort

1:00 AM on 06.02.2011 // Jonathan Holmes

This video sort of feels like a sequel to Napoleon Dynamite, set in Sweden, with no scripted jokes, focused on some guys who made a DSiWare game about the least fun parts of old Grand Theft Auto PC games.

That's supposed to be a compliment. I've watched the video three times already, and I'm still finding new stuff to love about it. I think my new favorite part is when Pelle Almqvist-Pettersson says, "Your job is to park cars, ehhhhh, in free parking spaces, and then when the guest wants to leave, you have to bring back the car." Then a few seconds later, a little bikini lady starts dancing in the middle of the screen. And don't even get me started on the soundtrack.

Anyway, I'm buying the game on day one, if only to repay the men of Zordix for creating this YouTube masterpiece.
