We at the WTF Game Jam aren’t really a news source. We host a bunch of gamers and artists who come together and make games, and we provide links to a whole bunch of resources to do so. That’s us.
So when this new jammer signed up, we were rather beside ourselves with what to do with his identity. But after long deliberation we have decided that it’s best to be honest, and we’ll take the fallout as it comes.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is our pleasure to introduce Mike Thorpe, the oldest man in existence.
We at the WTF Game Jam were skeptical of this claim, but the evidence is insurmountable. He complains loudly and frequently that the cost of going to a movie is often in excess of $50 for a single ticket, that video games used to be harder, better designed, more complicated, simpler in conception, easier to play, and “happier.” On one occasion he spent an entire evening claiming the world was about to end, while also bemoaning that people used to be nicer and that the drugs used to be better.
Mike threatens almost daily to leave his job, kill his D&D characters, and pretty much anything else you would expect of a man who is apparently like a million-goddamn-years old.
