@RI, regarding Jackie's new job -- something strange going on here. Spooky.
Irishrichy, according to his profile, was last active in 2009. Similarly, Brentimous was last active in 2010.
Irishrichy made the following post:http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=37781.msg496581#msg496581
It lays out his vision for Spoons III. (Spoons II was to be a "lost game.") It's a fairly well constructed "outline." Been wading around the web, way past my bedtime, and, in my sleep deprived state, beginning to wonder if Brentimous' Doh-mii could be David Bowie? If David Bowie was the musician who signed The Spoons to their record contract, in view of Bowie's recent death, it would make a suitable lead-in to RoN-Rock, effectively connecting the two stories (before and after his death). I noted Let's Dance
was the song The Spoons mangled, and resulted in Doh-mii's rant near the end of Rock.
Irishrichy asks about a celebrity as a minor character. He mentions thinking about running with Brentimous' idea of Richy as a "pederast" (Doh-mii actually said pedophile). I note that Michael Jackson dies in 2009, which opens up some possibilities along the lines of a companion for Dead Bill Cosby as well as someone that only Richy can see as a result of the mugging. (I make no judgement of Michael's guilt or innoncence -- just sayin'.)
Irishrichy had a secondary concern to explain Scid's Bar on the Beach and how George Watstatts could be in two places at the same time. How about: he's got a twin brother Arnold Watstatts (identical down to the stains on the apron -- clever reuse of sprites, as well).
Don't know who Irishrichy planned as the player character, but I'd like to do something with Jackie. In view of the mugging of Richy, she might fit the bill. I'm wondering what is the proper protocol for running with someone else's ball, as it were?
Edit: Been thinking about what Scid's at the Beach might look like:
Rough idea, so it's just a jpg image.
