2006-08-21 : GenCon 06 story 2
I'm running a Mechaton demo, whee! I've got three guys smashing mechs into each other, I'm just reffing. Someone comes up to me and introduces herself as Anna - "I made that Dogs in the Vineyard Flash animation?"
She says she has a gift for me. I'm like, "a gift? Anna you already gave me the coolest thing ever." But no, she has a gift for me, and it's even cooler.
It doesn't fit in my scanner whole, so here are some excerpts.
It's awesome how much they look like little kids. Perfect.
His face is totally a Dogs face: "I'll shoot you, but please, please don't make me..."
And hers: "...and I won't miss."
I'm really touched. I'm standing there looking at this beautiful piece of art and ignoring my Mechaton players (it's okay, they've got the rules down, they finish the demo without me and trundle off to the cash register to buy the game). After a speechless little while I'm like, "so Anna, are you in the market for jobs that don't pay well?"
"I can't get enough of them," she says.
My only bummer is that one of you mugs is going to hire her before I do. I have a project with her name on it, but no way I can get to it before this time next year.
You can find her at browserbeware.com.
