Miner Wars 2081– Producing producers

Keen Software– 28 December 2010 Miner Wars 2081– Producing producers

We at Keen Software House hope you had a good holidays, blah, blah, etc., etc., - enough about you– all you ever talk about is yourself– let’s talk about us for a bit.

We’re looking for a producer to handle our publisher and investor relationships:

-      He/she must have a set of pre-existing industry contacts

-      Minimum 5 years’ experience, including work with a major publisher

-      They must be available in the immediate future

-      Must be well-versed in English with exceptional communication skills

-      No gingers

The punitive compensation will be performance-based, and the competition is fairly tough. One may expect in the region of 10% profit over sales if good business is delivered.

If this is a position that interests you, then please send your curriculum vitae to info@keenswh.com.

We need people with confidence and leadership qualities. Like that film– can’t remember the name– it had all those gladiators. I can’t remember much about it, but Russell Crowe is there and he’s like the main gladiator leading everyone– I think it was called Robin Hood.

Anyway, we’ve been plugging away over at Keen Software House. Your money for purchase of the game has gone towards sturdier cages and a higher protein feed for our developers, so there’ll be no more escapes and slightly fewer starvations.

Allof our writers have been sacked, replaced by 100 monkeys at 100 ergonomic keyboards– mostly because they eat fewer bananas. We hoped for Shakespeare, we ended up with more vampire adult fiction. So we scrapped that idea, down-sized, and now we’ve just got two lone primates: ArtimusBena and Richard Waldron. The latter is exceptionally hairy.

Marek has been throwing around cash frivolously, with nil regard for the game’s finance. The sequinned cheek-less leather pants he ordered for Christmas arrived, and hasn’t taken them off since he managed to butter his way into them.

Also, several restraining orders will expire for him as of the 01/01/11, so there’s plenty of reason to celebrate. Some might even call it a Christmas miracle :).
