Ok, so you probably know how much of a nerd gamer I am. I mean, I maintain a domain exclusively to show my Xbox Gamer Tag. But this is just too much.
They are going to make a Tiki Bar TV Video game and I am the main character. I am the main character in a video game. Me. As in you pick up your mouse and you move me around. ME. And I run into things and make noises and when you throw me off a cliff, or when you blow me up by over-cooking a grenade. Me, in a cardboard hat.
That is the weirdest damned thing I have ever seen and I cannot even believe the words as I type them into this blog entry and read them on the screen. I mean, the guys at Joystiq picked up the press release and said “we love Tiki Bar TV”, which had me smiling for the better part of the day.
So awesome. Here’s some screengrabs from the Secret Labs site.
