Olli, our main artist, recently made a picture of Jørn, our music guy. It so happens that Jørn was already a fan of Olli’s Threadless t-shirts, and felt honoured. As a testament to this (and apparent abundant spare time) the following karaoke clip was created as a homage to Olli, old video games, and the ancient art of translating the lyrics back and forth from Japanese with Google Translate!
I happen to be born on the 4th of July, and this was well remembered this week my my fellow employees. Jørn also sent over a new melody. Thinking it was for the game, I opened it and found this little pearl.
The continent in Minute Mayhem where it all happens is called Croma. Why? History, that’s why.
More than a thousand years ago, the first great nation of technology conquered what was then little more than barbaric, illiterate tribes. This nation brought the methodology of science with them, and when the empire finally collapsed the name on the part of the world they had once ruled stayed behind. Amongst the great noble families of the world, and in several secret orders, it is claimed that their origin stretches all the way back to the great Empire. The truth of these matters is hard to discern today, and most commoners don’t quite see why it would matter anyway.
The Empire sprawled from the city-state of Crome, and it was known as the Croman Empire.
