The concepts some game makers come up with…

While doing some rearranging of the files and directories on my webserver, I came across this image. I scanned it a year or two ago.

The story behind it is that it's from a flyer I got at E3 2002. There are three main halls at E3, you see. The main action takes place at the South and West Halls, where the "big" companies have their booths. For example, Sony and Nintendo are side-by side in West Hall, while Microsoft is in South Hall, along with manufacturers like Blizzard, Activision, Capcom, Namco, Komani, etc. (Midway was in a separate smaller hall.) However, in my opinion, the most interesting hall is Kentia Hall, which is where all the smaller and/or foreign (read: not American, British, or Japanese) manufacturers have their booths set up. You get to get a different feel for what the smaller companies are up to.

Anyway, during E3 2002, Justin and I were wandering Kentia Hall, when we passed by this Korean game manufacturer's booth. A booth babe handed me a flyer, and I just put it in my bag without looking at it. When I got home, I was looking through the stuff I had gotten from the show, and I happened upon the flyer from that Korean game company. I just stared at it for a while, thinking, "What the FUCK?!"

I swear, this has to be one of the more disturbing images I've come across.

Now, years later, I still get a bit of a chuckle out of this image. I wonder if it ever made it outside Korea (or even made it big INSIDE Korea)?
