According to 1Up, Double Fine Productions company owner Tim Schafer demands from Microsoft that they make his game Psychonauts backwards compatible. Schafer said he offered help to Microsoft to give them insight in the game engine but they responded by saying they have ‘top … men’ working on backward compatibility around the clock.
Schafer got kind of pissed when the backwards compatibility update from a couple of days ago didn’t include his masterpiece. Microsoft let him down even after all the help he offered.
You know, if it would help, we’d be willing to fly all our engineers up to Seattle, and they’d do all the programming! Or, they could just tell you exactly how our engine works, and we could probably get it running on the 360 in just a few hours!
Now he wants you to do the following: send an e-mail to this address and tell them you’re a sick 9 year old boy in a hospital, whose dying wish is to play Psychonauts on his Xbox 360. The e-mail address really exists, it came from the MS BC page.
I want you to get up. I want you to walk over to your window right now. I want you to open your window up, and then I want you to stick your head out, and then I want you to take in a nice breath of fresh air, and then I want you to close that window and walk back to your computer and click on this link and send Microsoft a heartfelt message. Something to the effect of, “I am a 9-year-old boy in the hospital, dying of consumption, and my last wish is to play Psychonauts on my XBOX 360!” (Please, try to make up your own disease.)
