The rest of you have already mentioned this stuff more than enough, but seriously! He stole his logo off the Web and freely admits to it in his blog? He came up with his game ideas on the spur of the moment? His in-depth discussions with LucasArts amount to one email?

Is anyone else reminded of those people who periodically roll up in places like the Underground forums, post "hi I'm working on a 3D remake of MI2 but need some1 to do the grafix and sound and also the voice acting get back to me plz??? Look at this concept art I amde lol, its in paint but i'll download photoshop 2moro and then admit it on my blog" and are never heard from again?

Honestly, I do wish Wolfgang every success. I do. But it's not going to happen is it?

Not likely, the way he's going.

If the post-production was such that it changed the source image sufficiently (ie. so much so that it would be impossible to trace back), then probably not.

Team three they're on for Rocks. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the game... it's a boulderdash clone.

I'm going to be contraversial and say that I don't hate Bad Brain.

Oh I'm in trouble now...

Yeah. Though his image link is broken now dabnabbit. Not that I'm claiming some sort of monopoly on the association.

It just scares me how he continues his davidbrentisms to this day. And beyond no doubt.

People don't have to use the word 'hate' for that feeling or impression to come across loud and clear.

I'm not a mind reader, and I could be misinterpreting some of those, but the impressions of some of my forum friends aren't lost on me.

And this isn't the first time Bad Brain has gotten gang probed on this forum. I'm just saying I'm one person who doesn't hold everything against them. I'm disappointed, for sure. They certainly made some pretty dumb mistakes and made highly exaggerated claims, but I'm hoping they've learned from the fallout and changed in the last few months. Of course, I'm thinking that airing the dirty laundry by doing this little CEO Blog is a bad idea on Bad Brain's part. It's clearly not winning anybody over to their side. Nevertheless, I hope that we'll be getting some good games from them, and that's all I really care about. Bad, evil, bilous or unethical, I don't care if they have to lie, cheat, steal, or enslave orphaned hamsters running on little wheels to make a good game, if it gets the job done and I'm enjoying the game, I'll be satisfied. Is that so wrong? Does that make me a bad person?

Anyway, personally, I think Orgastic 4 has some good potential. I mean, how many games have a beaver as one of the main characters? It's way ahead of its time, I tell you what.

They're genius because we're all here talking about this and generating interest. When the game(s) finally do come out, we'll all try them out, and if they're good then there will be a lot of crow to eat.

Is the sarcastic self-scolding supposed to be part of an effort to form some lame point against a non-existent anti-BBE crusade? Glancing through past related threads, you seem to believe that a lot of people want Bad Brain burned to the ground or something. You can have a different opinion without antagonizing everybody. The reaction here is not positive, but it's hardly inappropriate. And you've got to admit, the latest postings on Wolfgang's blog are highly silly, revealing, and entertaining.

It's as if you're looking into my soul. My paranoia shames me...

They are. I actually think it's interesting how he came up with those kinda ridiculous names. Just because the origins don't seem that creative or inspired now, it doesn't mean they won't become something far more fascinating later on. Except for Rocks. I really have no idea what's up with that.

self

I even posted on that thread.

And artwking, I think I pretty much agree with you. I don't normally care how games arrive in my lap either. I'm sure Bad Brain aren't the only people who do things like this, but they're about the only people I know that declare it publicly (some might call this brave, but strikes me more as stupidity).

And just for the record, the "Bad Brain are a pack of unethical incompetents" thing was kind of tongue in cheek and was as much a comment on public/forum perception of Bad Brain as on Bad Brain itself (well, maybe not quite as much, but at least a little ). My post in the thread that jp-30 linked to better outlines my take on Bad Brain:

Particularly their latest announcement, which clearly levels blame at the LucasArts side of the table (which may be fair(?) but is less than professional). How they can make an announcement like that, and then expect someone else to happily enter negotiations with them is a bit beyond me.

In the long run, if things continue this way, I don't think anyone will come out of this looking golden. Bad Brain will suffer as well.

And I think suggesting that people petition Steve Purcell is just plain stupid.

I respect what Bad Brain are trying to do, just not how they are trying to do it.
Either way, I'm still interested to see what this beaver will bring to the table.

if some german guy with not much money wanted to start a game company and talk about all the games he created i wouldn't mind.. what i find offensive is he would use fans of "sam & max" who had waited 12 years for a sequel to their favorite game, and having it just cancelled pull them along for his own interests. he stated "he had signed a nda with lucasarts" that was completely false.. he said he was in discussions with lucasarts..no he wasnt he received 1 e-mail from someone at lucasarts.. and with this he dragged out this whole thing for months

david brent was inanely stupid but i dont remember him lying as much as keidorf..

and artwking youve been defending BB all along and i'm not sure why.. what makes you think one german guy with no money no game producing experience is going to deliver a quality game? he's basically admitted in his blog he made everything up as he was going..

I have to say the blog has won me over. From the very beginning Bad Brain struck me as an amateur operation run by some spontaneous overenthusiastic guy. A guy that would talk big ideas, design a decent website (with all the graphics and source code probably ripped-off, though), lie a little bit to try to portray the company as legitimate and get some attention, but then quickly lose interest in it all once a brick wall was hit when it came to actually making games, and the whole thing would fizzle. And the way he talks about the company in his blog seems to reinforce this impression completely. But then, someone like this wouldn't talk about such things so publicly...so I’ve decided he can't actually be someone like this. Maybe he's just kind of stupid, but he doesn't seem to be. The type of person the fella' strikes me as is a marginally insane person, and I like insane people, so I’ve decided I like him.

I know, I'm a terrible person for hoping and believing in adventure games, especially in these days when it's a MIRACLE that any get made and published at all. It's just awful of me to try and have a positive outlook on this, thinking that Bad Brain can learn it's lessons and get back on track, if only for the crazy, selfish reason that I want to see more adventure games on the market. Somebody come put me away before I hurt myself!

I honestly don't really know why, and I don't really care why, but I'll keep doing it. I don't care what they did in the past anymore, just what they're going to do in the future. Strange as it is, defending Bad Brain was my first post in this forum, and if I have to keep doing it until it's my last post at AG, than I'll do that.

I can always HOPE that an adventure game will be good. If a bunch of people working in their spare time for free can create a game like KQIX (although unfortunately cancelled) with little to no money, then there's always a possibility that some German guy with not much money who starts a game company can actually raise more money and come up with ideas and hire talented people and actually make a good game.

Ah, yes. At least "Fists of Fury" is already taken.
