I’m an interviewing madman

I think people keep asking to interview me because they want to see if I say something stupid. It’s pretty much a guarantee that I will say something inflammatory, but I think they want me to say something really and truly horrifyingly stupid. To that I will only say, “it’s only a matter of time so keep the questions coming, I dare you!”

An epic tale of love

So, I was minding my own business and perusing the Kotaku boards this morning when I got slapped in the face by this article:

Epic unveils Bulletstorm

Bulletstorm? Really? Epic is so jealous of our success and mad shooting skills that they are jumping on the BulleTrain coat tails already? C’mon Cliffy, we know that you’re hurting right now what with your Unreal engine being slapped around by Unity3D, but this is a cheap shot. Seriously dude (huge) are we that much of a threat to you that you gotta horn in on our parade? We don’t have ANY chainsaws in our game in respect to you, but you gotta go and steal our Bullets? If there’s a giant flying space train in your game I would be expecting a call from our lawyer.

They like us, they kinda like us!

For the two people who visit our site regularly, and were not already linked here via the Gamasutra article, here’s the link:

Gamasutra Interview!!

To say that we are honored to have the chance to have an interview on Gamasutra would be an understatement. Until now, Gamasutra has just been the place we visited to look for work and to troll the comments to make ourselves feel superior. Now we are on the fabled website and people are contacting us offering their services to help Downsized in our endeavors. It’s truly a nerve wracking, but thrilling, experience and I have never talked so much on the phone or typed so much email in my life! Thanks to all of you who have sent kind words, I can’t reply to everyone but know that it is appreciated. Here’s a few more screen shots to whet the appetite, and quell the rumors that we just fabricated the web site to drum up press. Hopefully we’ll be better prepared to be outed.
