The negotiation

The meeting room had been chilled slightly to 19 degrees, so the attendees wouldn’t be falling asleep after their delightful lunch, at our expense and I’m not sure why, thought Hideki. After all, these people are coming to take our IP and do god-knows-what with them.  His inner monologue continued as he was reminded of… Continue reading The negotiation

3.5 An updated design

“How’s it going with the write up for the next character reveal?” Asked Charles, staring at the black screen. Her camera was off, but he insisted to not reciprocate and continued to exaggerate his Japanese style nodding towards the webcam, as he reminded the artist that the deadline was this Thursday. “It’s Monday, so there’s… Continue reading 3.5 An updated design

3.4 Not in my game

Twenty four hours after posting about Palestine, MVS, the biggest gaming mag on the planet, pulled the article. “You wot?” cackled the smaller gaming mags, “well, shit, time for an article about removing an article.” “Mind,” sent the editor of GGamers, in a SMS to her newest teenage contributor hopeful, as they scrambled to put… Continue reading 3.4 Not in my game

3.3 SwordMan7

“Bruh” wrote John, “SM7 is coming to PC” There was no reply. He waited around, checking for at least an hour. The lack of reponse was due to time zones, of course. Not because he was unpopular, he told himself. Someone tagged his comment with a shocked emote. John left the chat, again deflated, and… Continue reading 3.3 SwordMan7

3.2 Perception

Ah.  There she is.  “Yo yo yo! I got to see that episode you were working on, Inoki-sama!  It’s great!” he posted, and went about doing other things, to see if this bait would be taken. “Eh? Really? It came out on Blu-Ray yesterday, did you pre-order it from Japan?” she replied. Karl inhaled through… Continue reading 3.2 Perception

3.1 The Division

“Why don’t you stream on Gamerville?” asked Jenny11, on the stream chat.  “That’s where all the gamers are.” she wrote. Alice repeated the question out loud, and still hadn’t thought of a good response. “Well,” she pondered, “do my subscribers feel the same way?  Please let me know in the chat, please.” The five people… Continue reading 3.1 The Division

002.2 The Beta

“You are streaming this, aren’t you.” Alice suddenly looked and felt very very tall. “No,” he said, as he shrank and turned round, “what?” They both rushed over to the corner (well ok, she went and he followed) and the perpetrator stood there, still recording. “Bruv got pwned hard and bitched her out lololol” as… Continue reading 002.2 The Beta

002.1 The Beta

“So,” with the usual finger to his glasses, Dapi assumed it was clear that this was the time for serious talk. “what do you think we should do with this beta?”  “Well,” replied Charles, with a gleam in his eye, “friendzoning is the most typical outcome.” Charles had prepared for the case that this meticulously… Continue reading 002.1 The Beta

001 A Family Man at Home

Tired of the noise, he looked up from his screen and around the table.   Everyone else was looking down.  The food hung mid air.  He thought about reminding Alice to close her mouth when she was chewing but she wasn’t even doing that.  She wasn’t really doing anything, just staring- with her mouth open; he… Continue reading 001 A Family Man at Home
