SMALL TANK aftermath

Add Comment! By Jeffrey Rosen on April 1st, 2009

Hey guys, as you know, we prefer live chat to email (as mentioned in this post). After posting about SMALL TANK last night, our live chat widget went under a lot of stress and when we logged in this morning, we were flooded with queued messages. Here's a few pretty good ones, with the names changed to protect the innocent:

REDACTED: Hello Jeff, i've awaited for you, please say WHAT IS SMALL TANK?!?!?!??
REDACTED: Please, I worry about OG
REDACTED: OG developing will continued and never stopped until done?Yes?PLeasetell me!Small tank is just april joke, right?????

meebme951578: Are you going to stop working on Overgrowth!!!!!!!???????
meeboguest913388: where can I preorder small tanks
REDACTok: i hope that doenst mean you guys are giving up
REDACTok: you just need a better marketing strategy. things that take place in in fantasy and science fiction realms focus on the bad guys. showing the unimaginable scope of the evil, or it shows the deep personal affect that the bad guys have on the primary characters. think about the original oblivion trailer, it had three things. . . .the gate to oblivion. . . . .the clannfear deeadroth . . . . . and patrick stewart these things are actually the embodyment of entetainment advertising
REDACTok: the triumvirate of advertising. you need two of hte following hopefully all, the bad guy, the fortress, and the guy with the smooth voice. these are the points. the lines that connect these points are what make it a triangle. those lines are game aspects. sound,enviroment, and playability.
