Local game developer looking for video-shoot extras

Ms. ’Splosion Man. We're not sure how that works.

So sayeth Craigslist. The creators of such Xbox Live hits as ’Splosion Man and Comic Jumper were not satisfied with revealing the trailer for Ms. ’Splosion Man a few weeks back. No, they have another game to announce, and will do so to a "select" group of volunteers at a video shoot this Saturday morning at the Paramount Theatre.

Extras will not be compensated with anything other than the inside scoop on the latest creation from the growing local developer. If you have friends who are impressed by things like that, you're in luck. Check out the Craigslisting here:, and RSVP before Thursday, Jan. 27. Sounds like the gig involves little more than sitting in your seat for three to four hours, but, who knows, you could be in on the ground floor of the next groundbreaking video game. Knowing what we know about the wacky kids at Twisted Pixel, we expect antics, tomfoolery, and no shortage of shenanigans. But I'm just guessing.
