[edit] Transcript

{A static shot shows two Videlectrix programmers working at the Apple IIe, one with a Wii remote and the other waving a mouse.}

FIRST PROGRAMMER: I don't understand; they said it would work with all the latest systems.

SECOND PROGRAMMER: Yeah, I heard, but I don't think this is— this system is the lat... est.

FIRST PROGRAMMER: This is a top-of-the-line, state-of-the-art, art computer.

SECOND PROGRAMMER: I— I think I was born after this computer.

FIRST PROGRAMMER: {angrily} Oh, that is it. One more crack like that and you will never graphic in this business again!

SECOND PROGRAMMER: {apologetically} Oh— Okay, I'm sorry. Wo—

FIRST PROGRAMMER: Good or bad!

SECOND PROGRAMMER: Wave it—

FIRST PROGRAMMER: {interrupting} I'll wave it at you!

SECOND PROGRAMMER: {quietly} I'd like that.

[edit] Easter Eggs

"WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THESE DAYS?"
  • Click on the text on the screen at the end of the preview to see another exchange between the two programmers.

{The first programmer holds up the art from the Planet Alert! box and a screenshot from Peasant's Quest; the second programmer cowers with a Wii remote in his hand, without a strap on.}

FIRST PROGRAMMER: {shouting angrily} REMEMBER THESE DAYS?

SECOND PROGRAMMER: I... yeah...

FIRST PROGRAMMER: WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THESE DAYS?

SECOND PROGRAMMER: Uh... it was a while ago...

FIRST PROGRAMMER: THE HEYDAYS!

SECOND PROGRAMMER: I can draw hay.

FIRST PROGRAMMER: WHERE'S THE GRAPHICS?

SECOND PROGRAMMER: I can't do them anymore...

FIRST PROGRAMMER: 3D? WHAT, DO YOU THINK YOU'RE A SPACEM'N?

SECOND PROGRAMMER: Not really, I thought I was a graphics man.

FIRST PROGRAMMER: WELL, START ACTING LIKE ONE!

SECOND PROGRAMMER: {sings a melody}

FIRST PROGRAMMER: {slightly calmer} That's what I'm talking about!

SECOND PROGRAMMER: It's my good graphics song. {sings a few more notes}

FIRST PROGRAMMER: {overlapping} It's great. Let's— Now, see— Cut! Print! Put it in the game!
