There is a pretty cool looking dude on the cover of the Prison Outbreak box too....

I think it is way cool they did this for you. Look kids, daddy's on the box.

I'm a little more than on the box... I'm a playable character, and will be molded in purple to boot! It's pretty much the coolest honor I have ever received!

Not sure where the orange came from. I was wearing a green Baseball jersey in the photos the based it off of. In the full size art, they even made it say Red Sox.

Yeppers! But I drew the line with the school girl outfits. I'm all for fan service, but me in a mini skirt was just gratuitous!

Wow, that is sooo cool. Who'd you have to do to get that to happen? Actually, when I think of this game, I think of you. You are the poster child.

I was just a vocal supporter and salesman during the kickstarter. Spreading the word, and helping out answering questions in the comments section. I was also running hourly statistics and things in the final couple of days to keep people hyped and involved. I was cracking jokes, and getting people involved, and the comments section was more active than any kickstarter I have ever seen. When it ended, it was the biggest board game ever on kickstarter, it got beaten out by OGRE shortly after, but it passed them up despite running head to head against each other! An unknown game from a first time designer, and a first time board game publisher, took on an Industry giant, and kicked their ass. For a few days at least....:)



In a nutshell, I let my fan boy flag fly, and people go behind it.

A few months ago, Guillotine Games contacted me and said they wanted to add someone to the game to commemorate the fun experience that was the kickstarter campaign, and they chose me. They said they couldn't imagine the whole experience being the same if I wasn't part of it, so I was the obvious choice to represent the fan boys. So I sent them a few pictures and some short bio questions, and there I am I the box!

It truly is the greatest honor I have ever received. I don't know if that seems like a shallow highlight, but as a gamer, and someone who loves to spread joy around him, being chosen to be IN a game, BECAUSE I was spreading joy ... is such an epic gift. I'm not worthy!

Give yourself credit, you are worthy. Very happy this happened for you SB. Cannot wait to see your sculpt and player info in the game.

I remember that same look on the paintball field many, many, many years ago.
