In the build up to i43 I sit down with Comedian, previoulsy of TF2TV, now of VanillaTV.
In the last few weeks there has been a staff shuffle; Shox is going to pass his role as ‘right-hand-man’ over to the floor manager, Leftism. Comedian has faught to maintain the Open Mic project, he explains the importance of the constant hunt for new talent and this sentiment is reflected too in VTF2’s open call for writers.
Most importantly this week sees the preparations for Multiplay’s i43, the biggest eSport gathering and LAN party in the UK. VanillaTV are going to be bringing the fource of four men and hope to introduce Cheerfuls, previously seen in StartCraft audiences and a unique promo item.
The guys from GangGarrison2 are here. Well, two of them at least. Their project size ebs and flows seemingly with the moon. Luckily the two who turned up for this, their first episode of WIP, know all there is to know about gg2. Med0 (Simeon Maxein) and mrfredman (Sam Goldberg) have worked on this for a very long time. The Project started as a demake of TF2 for a TIGsource competition. Inevitably this Game Maker program has been accused of aquiring many of its concepts from Cave Story and Soldat. Aware of this every opportunity is made to reference the games where possible.
Just in case you were thinking these guys were a one trick pony, mrfredman reveals he had a hand in Super Cock Blockers and Med0 gets his kicks programing skynet’s flying droids.
