Bt eats Marmite to Prove His Love for QFI and IQ

Broomie enjoys marmite.  He enjoys it on toast.

I do not.  I once had marmite on a dare, and I spent hours scraping my tongue, and drinking from a toilet bowl to get the taste out of my mouth.

However, with encouraging from Mr. Broom – I, Bt, have decided to eat Marmite on Toast to prove my love for all things Infamous Quest, and our beloved game, Quest For Infamy.

This will all be happening live – details to follow.  Needless to say, it may be in your interest to watch me eat Marmite.  It could be entertaining.

As I said, keep your eyes on the site for more details.

Here’s the video!

Why…. Blackthorne?

Some of us around here have net-handles. Me, well you can see I use “Blackthorne” which has become “Bt” over the years. It’s a funny story behind Blackthorne, and it’s the handle I have used on-line since 1990. Since I was originally playing Sierra games 23 years ago now.

Many people often think it stems from the Interplay published game “Blackthorne” which came out for the SNES in 1994, but my usage predates that – I was 12 in 1990, and a voracious reader. My grandfather was a big reader, and I remember these large tomes that lived on on his shelf – “The Godfather” by Mario Puzo, “Crime and Punishment” by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, “Exodus” by Leon Uris, “The Source” & “Cheasepeake” by James Michener are some that stick out – along with “Shogun” by James Clavell. So one day, I took down Shogun and started reading it – it was definitely a struggle and a bit above me, but on my visits, I would read a couple dozen pages or so every time – and the protagonist of that novel was John Blackthorne.

Being 12, I thought that was a cool name, and when I started to dial into BBSs, I used that name as my login ID. In the early day of modem and BBSs, I used it on every site – and you’d find users from all over keeping the same ID, establishing an identity. So, I have used this for over 23 years now.

Nice bit of random trivia. I’m sure everyone has stories behind their net handles. I’m always interested in hearing them.

Meet Team Infamy

It’s been an AMAZING campaign!  We’ve reached $50,000!  That is double our original funding, and it’s allowed us to do so much more with not only the game, but with the presentation of it and the interaction with fans.  Now, we’ll be able to get the game translated into other languages and reach a wider audience.  I love how adventure games transcend not only time, but also languages, cultures and countries.

I’m proud to be able to call people from all over the globe friends.  This experience, making games, has brought the world into my living room and has brought me into the world at large.  Some people never get that kind of experience, and for that – I thank all of you for allowing it to happen.

And the team is also comprised of people from all across the globe too!  I want to invite you to watch this video – “Meet Team Infamy” and get to better know the people who are making the game.  These guys are all amazing, creative and talented, and I want you to know who you’re supporting.
