This weekend, I had reason to celebrate as I completed Chapter 4 of my game. So far, the running time of the game is around 2 1/2 hours with over 13 minutes of FMVs – so it’s already longer than the total running time of M:I-2. Now comes the big dreaded Chapter 5 I’ve been worried about. Wish me luck.
Part of this weekend’s celebration involved meeting up with Brittany and Melanie and going to see the long-awaited “Coraline” – which turned out to be a way better movie than I imagined (I’d compare it to “Phantasmagoria” meets “Psychonauts” if anyone gets the reference.) In fact, it’s probably right up there with “The Iron Giant” or “Mask of the Phantasm” as an incredibly good movie that will theatrically disappear into obscurity before people start realizing they missed something awesome.
Then we hung out at Melanie’s awesome new house and listened to her tell stories about her neighbor’s kid swinging a chain and pooping in the alley.
