This was a fun comic to make as we went through many ways the comic could have been done and what could have been said. While it’s strange to think of Tetris blocks as having personalities, I’ve decided that the ‘I’ block would definitely be considered the popular kid, while the square block would be the reject. I even proposed in one draft of the comic that the square would be all by his lonesome saying, “I just don’t seem to fit in anywhere…” Kind of makes you feel for the little guy. Anyway, you Tetris fanatics out there might find the Wikipedia page on Tetris to be an interesting read. And finally, the title of the comic, does anyone remember whose line that is? (hint, think TV shows) It cracks me up just thinking about it!
Tim and I were really trying to make sure my presentation was correct, and got a little too caught up with the rules of Tetris in the progress.
“But if we have them turn around to walk away, wouldn’t they become different pieces?”
“Should I have them tilting a little bit or not? Because Tetris pieces can’t tilt.”
“But only one Tetris piece can fall at a time, so should we make this a two-player game instead?”
It was that last quote where I had to draw the line, yet somehow I know we’ll end up getting e-mails about it.
