Raptor Guts: "Career Decisions II"
Posted: Thursday March 11th, 2010 by

There's no rich bed of subtext here other than what we each bring into it. From my perspective it just kind of summarizes life right now. I need more but I'll take what I can get if it means being close to something important to me. Getting a foot in the door is important right?

Well since I don't really have much to say about the comic, I'd like to talk a moment about Raptor Guts. I hinted for a long time at the game they were supposedly working on. You might remember that I spent a week after ConnectiCon with my pal Richard, his wife, and their new baby. While I was there we fleshed out what I had in mind. Of course it was never going to be a real game, but it was fun to lay out the course. I had every intention of illustrating the development of the game.

It was called "Mr. Binkybear's Happy Happy Fun Time". The idea was that you would be in control of teddy bear mayhem as Mr. Binkybear navigated his toy world, fighting and removing other toys' stuffing in the most disturbing ways possible. I even had the idea that the collectors edition would ship inside a stuffed animal that gamers would have to rip open so get their game. Before they even started playing they would have a visceral experience.

Then before I ever got going on that story arc, 505 Games announced Naughty Bear. My heart was broken. And I let Raptor Guts fall by the wayside. **shrugs and grins**

That's the way of things huh?

Naughty Bear will release for the 360 and PS3 sometimes this year. [more info]
