Description

A simple story featuring Mario, Luigi and some friends. Sometimes corporative thinking just kills the fun of it.

How great ideas are KILLED Everything here is fictional. Some things may look like the real world.* v.1.0 *Except for Mario sprites, of course.

Characters Mr President He’s actually a nice guy. Really. CEO of Big Co. Big money! I’m always open to new ideas. Fresh minds greaten our company! You don´t change things like that! Everything always worked like this!

Mr President

He’s actually a nice guy. Really.

CEO of Big Co.

Big money!

Characters Director Worked hard to get here. Sort of nice guy. Maybe too busy to get what’s really going on. Always discuss ideas. Doesn’t mean he listen to it. One day you’ll be like me! Just hope I’m already president by then.

Director

Always discuss ideas. Doesn’t mean he listen to it.

Characters Trainees Recently graduated. Lives with their moms. First real job. They think they know more about marketing, administration and managing than everyone! But hey, they’re protagonists! Yay! Yo! Need the money to buy Mirror’s Edge! Must... Get... D&D 4th edition DM’s Guide.

Trainees

Recently graduated.

Lives with their moms.

First real job.

They think they know more about marketing, administration and managing than everyone!

But hey, they’re protagonists!

Our story begins some weeks ago... And that’s it! If your employees are happy and feel they’re part of a group, it’ll boost their productivity! Wow, these guys know how to make a presentation! Did you see that cow slide? Genius!

Some day... Sooooo busy... Hey, wassup? I got a great idea, man!! What?

After a while... So everybody can add content! And comment on that too! Idea Scratch What if we add some personal space? To show some stuff we do outside here! I have some stuff to show! If everyone is watching, we could have a shared company calendar!

Some days later Hey, I’m impressed, guys... That’s really a great idea! Thank you, sir! There are just some minor details I would like to discuss better.

Here, I’m not sure if open comments is good. You know, people can be evil. And maybe here we could add some Big Co’s announcements. After all, this is a company project. Okay, sir. Minor modifications

So, we’re going to make a presentation for Mr President? We could use some video game sprites to ilustrate that! You’re crazy! It’s just me or the background is random? *This slide was inserted just to use all the jokes that came to my mind. (This phrase included) I would worry more with the fact you’re floating. Or with so many mixed games in this ppt.

Soon... Hey, I’m impressed, guys... That’s really a great idea! Thank you, sir! That’s just... I mean, you made a fun project, I’m sure everybody will like it. But we’re doing business here! Let’s just get some tiny adjustments done!

Sure... First, let’s get Big Co’s logo bigger. Remember, bigger is better! That´s why we are increasing the size of out management messages panel. Ok... I think we could get a space to talk about our last active campaign. And about that personal space... I don’t think it’s a good idea to mix work and fun. Right...

What a mess we got here! Is this the same project? Let’s drop that last user space. It’s so small and tight, anyway..

Great project, boys! Nevermind. I’m very proud of you two! Erm... Sir... You start working on this on Monday!

Some time later... It seems that the boys’ project didn’t get good results. Few people really joined. We’ll ask everyone in Big Co to get in. There are important corporative messages there. Send the e-mail tomorrow morning! Wait, Mr President, are you standing on water?

And that’s it! It means you can copy, edit, redistribute, present or do whatever you want. Just please don’t sign your name here. That’s ugly! I hope you had fun! And learned something in the process. ;) Sprites from http://www.smbhq.com/users/sprite/ Backgrounds from http://vgmaps.com/Atlas/ About the author: You crazy? I’ll loose my job! 2008 - Copyleft
