In the time that we have been working on this game; we have learned to brace for trouble and problems, we have learned that Murphy's Law is absolute. When things go wrong you can only hope that you prepared well enough to break the fall with a roll and take off running. This attitude has gotten us through many smaller issues and even ones that seemed like they would really change the way the game is played (or made). It fails us from time to time and the other day was one of those times.
We were preparing for a developer's slug-fest over lunch
when a homeless guy decided to sit at the table we were at. He tells us in a thick, drunken accent parts of his life story. How he was a Jawa in the original Star Wars, how his family went into debt after the movie, then he asked for a meal.
The momentum for the meeting shifted and then he started making weird jokes with one of our lady friends. It went from mild inconvenience, to uncomfortable, to upsetting. We learned that, a thing like this can REALLY throw the mindset off.
How great would it be if we were big enough to have a real office so we wouldn't have random homeless guy hitting on my girlfriend?
