Hi! I'm the Intern!

posted by NickTTG Telltale Staff on - last edited - Viewed by 3.9K users

So let me start off by saying... I already wrote this post once, but due to stupid crap, it's all lost. So I will try to recreate what I wrote. You might find a hint of surliness though.

Soo I really don't have much to say. Just that I'm the current Telltale Games Intern. It's pretty sweet. I figured I've been hiding in the forum shadows stalking members and chuckling at Jake's remarks. Well now I too shall be making remarks... maybe...

Who am I? You sure you wanna know?

My birth name is Nicholas, but please, call me Chief. Nick works too... I would tell you more, but I'm afraid that if I disclosed more, people would hunt me down and slay me for my position (which rocks btw). I am officially the youngest employee here at TTG at the ripe age of 18. It's pretty sweet untill we have the company party at some crazy bar in the city. I pride myself in being pretty hip and young though. I like to say things like killer, sweet, bummer, burl, hella, rockin', the, kool (with k, pronounced: c-oo-l), and various awesome things to say. I think I'm gonna add tool to my vocab cause Jake is an inspiration. If you ever wanna hear the word tool used in the best ways possible, work at TTG.

What do I do?

I make moving pictures. All that video work on the site? MINE! not legally, but watev (add that to the vocab list). Actually all the episode 1 stuff isn't my work. But all of the game trailers, game play footage, and stuff that makes you hate your online boredom, that's my realm! Once in a while I make in game stuff. Or I make up little clips that that aren't really in the game and put them in trailers just to make hardcore fans pull their hair out (see ep. 4 trailer (oh wait, you can't! hahahahahahahahha (I'm sorry for that) ) ). I also answer many support emails. Any time you need an activation key, I'm your man!

So I hope you enjoyed this visit inside my head. I love writing long forum post twice so it's been a REAL joy for me. I hope this will be a long relationship between you and I. "You" being the general reader. Not "you" as in Hannah or Alex. Sorry... not even Natalie or Trevor. Actually none of these people:

Ray Ray
Nick Frost
Simon Pegg
Sam Rockwell
Edward Norton
Owen Wilson

So when I say "You" in the future, know that I wasn't meaning these people. If your name is in fact NOT on the list, well then I must have forgotten you, and you might as well consider yourself on the list. Unless you name starts with 5.

I am soo confused as to what I just wrote. This is what happens when I write a post with no definite purpose. I am really sorry for any internal damage I have done. Enjoy the games?

    We remind him of this as often as possible. Especially today when he made the mistake of admitting he'd never heard of Big.

    Please tell me those aren't two fingers pointing to the left... please Emily...

    Er, those are the international sign of subtly disapproving shifty eyes in reference to Nick's shady remark. Thanks for playing though.

    Hey there Nick. Since you are the new intern let me fire some questions at you:

    Do you work in the closet which was formally resided in by Brendan?

    Do we assault you when the sam and max episodes are too easy?

    Who did you have to sleep with to get that position?

    Do you realise you were 4 years old when most of us were playing hit the road and day of the tentacle?

    Lets see...

    No to the closet. In fact if you read my employee bio, you'll know exactly where I work.

    Personally, I think some of the puzzles we put in our game are ridiculously hard. Tricking Steakcharmer? OMG that was hell. It took me 30 minutes and an IM to Emily to figure that one out. But of course the reason it might be so easy for you is because I then proceed to cry about my ineptitude for the whole month until they make it easier. You CAN assault me when the trailer sux. Unless it's this next one because I will assault back.

    I slept with BearBear the night before I got an email asking if I was interested. So the moral of the story is treat your stuffed animals right. what? IDK
    Actually I had been doing musical theater for 10 years, and one of my musical directors was Jared Emerson-Johnson. The musical genius behind the Sam and Max Audio greatness. So he got me in.

    And for your information, my two favorite games growing up were Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, and DOTT. So you can just eat it. I was a little scared of Sam and Max when I was young, but I played through it anyways. So I knew what I was jumping into.
