Shotgun sunrise is good for the comedy value, it lacks incredibly in design but I enjoy it regardless. I don't think the mapping on the campaign is good enough though for him to make any deal at all about it.

dont know if troll though

I'm amazed at Interlopers right now as every single one of you has not GOTTEN THE POINT!

Seriously, ALL OF YOU DON'T GET IT?!?!?!

The E-mail to Gabe was tongue and cheek. He wasn't serious and never expected a response.

Gabe responded jokingly that the reason why was that they were boycotting what he made. (har har see what they're doing?)

He asked if he should Fly Gabe over jokingly. Gabe said yes, but to include ErikJ as well.

The guy created a BS paypall account to "raise" money jokingly after this became internet famous to drum up some support for both his map and to keep this fame going a bit longer.

People for some reason took it serious and donated.
And called him a douchebag for not getting the MIND-BLOWINGLY OBVIOUS humor of the situation.

The guy isn't a douche, he's "Gradual Report" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXSCghV0cDk funny.

*Edit
VCool does get it.

It's quite simple really. I want to be a professional level designer. I want this to be my job.

And that is why he is clever. I really doubt he set up the account jokingly, because if he expected it to become famous he should have imagined that there would always be a dunce who would donate.

The guy may not have wanted this originally, but he is a clever opportunist. So chillax people, the guy made 950 bucks on the spot in today's crisis.

Why would someone ask VALVe to fly him out and see his L4D1 campaign? Is VALVe buying campaigns or something? If so how can I get in on this!?!? :P

Also that so called "Zombie mod" is about gay cowboys... And could this be that German that hacked HL2s source code and leaked it out, back from prison to get revenge on gabe?

I am probably a fool and ironically missed that everyone else was being sarcastic when I myself said they missed the humor. Wouldn't be the first time I've made an ass of myself :-D

And NO! That is no cowardly creeping little Ghost! THAT is the HERO OF THE IMPERIUM!



If ever....ever there was a character who needed an amazing video-game made for him, it would be Cain.

Everyone please do make sure you check the RPS Article as there you can see the original correspondence and hopefully see that this is all very tongue-in-cheek.

What the flip? I'm trying to do the exact same thing with my campaign Cold Case, but instead I'm just trying to get a job!

What the hell? You actually receive emails from Gabe? I have yet to receive one!

Really? I sent him a "Check out this link of pretty pictures of the arctic, might be useful for EP3 and he replied "Thanks, we'll check them out" within a few hours.
