The one man powerful enough to make video games develop themselves, Ichiro Lambe from Dejobaan, needs your help. He’s been involved with some shady business lately, and as of yesterday afternoon, I think it’s finally caught up with him – he’s completely disappeared. Was it the mob? His secret dealings with shadow governments? An alien abduction? Friends, I believe it may be much more sinister than that.
Ichiro’s been keeping me posted on the Valve PotatoFoolsDay ARG, which has mysteriously involved a few of his games (The Wonderful End of the World, Aaaaa!, and 1 2 3 KICK IT). I’ve gotten plenty of updates from him over the course of this ARG (or is it real?) as he continually linked me to sites reporting new discoveries in his games. Yesterday, things finally got weird. He sent me a link to this
confidential document begging for help. I was all, “Go on…” and Ichiro followed up with, “Right bef,” and that was IT. THAT WAS THE LAST I HEARD OF ICHIRO. Needless to say, I’m very concerned. He was obviously saying, “Right before…” but right before what? WHAT WAS THE END OF THAT SENTENCE?
Intrigued? You should be. Jon Myers and Darren Torpey have done a MUCH better breakdown of the whole situation on the Boston Indies site, so have a look and figure out where Ichiro is hiding (or has been taken). Remember, tweet with the tag #whereisIchiro so I can follow all the developments on Tweetdeck without actually searching for anything.
And we’ll be at Boston Post Mortem tonight so come say hello if you see us.
